This weekend at MoMA PS1, the Warm Up series is pleased to welcome Lisbon-based Producer/DJ Branko to the booth for a globe-trotting set of heavy rhythms. As a founding member of the influential kuduro group, Buraka Som Sistema, and head of the groundbreaking label Enchufada, his DJ sets are not to be missed.

We are very excited to have Clams Casino perform this week at Warm Up the day after the release of his debut album 32 Levels!
Before he performs, we are pleased to present Eartheater’s psychedelic vibes, Australian DJ Nina Las Vegas, and two grime sets from London by AJ Tracey and DBM.
This Saturday we are thrilled to host Theo Parrish, a pillar of Detroit’s house/techno scene for over 20 years. Before Theo plays, we are very excited to hear: Detroit’s mysterious techno master DJ Stingray, the genre-bending sounds of Cologne-based DJ/producer Lena Willikens, and a set from New York-based Japanese writer/artist/DJ Kiki Kudo.
Last week, we were lucky to host a disco-heavy dance party! After DJ Guiddo and Kento Slash Demon opened the show, we had the pleasure of witnessing the genius of Danny Krivit, Nancy Whang’s lively and ecclectic set, and a riveting live performance by MHD.
This Saturday we are excited to host Danny Krivit, one of the most admired disco DJs in the world!
The Statue of Liberty obscured by scaffolding. A woman reclining comfortably on a couch, unaware of the boa constrictor uncoiling itself on the floor. A cherubic, blond-haired boy dressed in Quaker clothing looking straight at the camera, his blank expression conveying a wisdom beyond his years.
I know sculptures can’t dance, but Raúl de Nieves’s Day(Ves) of Wonder looks like it might bust a move any minute. The three-foot piece—which depicts a humanoid figure in mid-groove, decked out in rainbow-colored platform boots, with swaying arms, cocked hips, and a sprawling, Medusa-like head—pulses with energy.
The blend of rap, grime, bop, and trap from last Saturday’s acts made for one of the wildest Warm Ups of the season! Joey LaBeija opened with a lively, Latin-infused dance set, Dark0 kicked off the day’s grime vibes, Sicko Mobb got the crowd bopping, rapper Tory Lanez brought more energy to the MoMA PS1 stage than we ever knew was possible, and DJ Slimzee brought out special guest Novelist—a true grime treat. Skepta gave a perfect performance in a pristine all-white outfit, ending with “Shut Down” on a stage filled with his friends. Baauer closed out the night with ‘90s throwbacks and trap bangers, carrying the dance party even further.
Heavy bass and hip-hop from the Night Slugs crew (Sheen, Helix, and Bok Bok); club bangers and throwbacks from Blaqstarr; and raw, melodic raps from both Despot, and Corbin and Bobby Raps created the perfect fusion of electronic and hip-hop for last Saturday’s Warm Up
Last Saturday’s Warm Up had a patriotic spirit complete with old-school dance beats, crowd surfing in a sea of red, white, and blue, and Nicky Siano’s “Return of Libby,” featuring Nicky himself in full Statue of Liberty garb. His reimagined constitution—allowing people the important rights of dancing and partying—seemed to take over the crowd, dancing right up to the start of the fireworks display in Long Island City.
