Warm Up 2014 @ MoMA PS1, Aug 9

7 August 2014

MoMA PS1‘s anticipated Warm Up outdoor music series continues its summer run with another event held at the MoMA PS1 courtyard on August 9.

The summer series – which started on June 28 and runs every Saturday through until September 6 – has become a New York summer staple, now rounding its 17th year in action. Bringing in some of the best experimental sounds, live performances and DJs, Warm Up heats up the MoMA PS1 courtyard, bodies swaying beside award-winning installation Hy-Fi by NYC architecture firm The Living.

The August 9 event, seventh in the 2014 summer line-up, features acts from across the globe, including George FitzGerald of Berlin’s Man Make Music, Washington’s Martyn of 3024 with a DJ set, a live performance by New York’s Aurora Halal, the spectral sounds of Matrixxman, and London’s Leon Vynehall of Aus Music.

Some other exciting performers from July include J-CUSH of Future Brown and Fade to Mind‘s Total Freedom, as well as upcoming shows by Lit City Trax‘s Visionist on August 16 and Sophie on September 6.

Inga Copeland EP due March 4.

27 February 2013

After hearing Inga Copeland‘s brilliantly moody ‘BMW’ last year, suddenly the prospect of Hype Williams potentially disbanding became easier to bear. That, along with the great work on her cohort Dean Blunt‘s ‘The Narcissist’ and the unfairly short teaser of an upcoming EP produced by Holland’s Martyn (aka Martijn Deykers) and London’s DVA, means things aren’t just looking up but are potentially even better than before.

That’s why the aformentioned 12″ with Deykers and DVA, Don’t Look Back, That’s Not Where You’re Going is another welcome addition to the post-Hype Williams empire. Available for pre-order on Boomkat the record is out through Hippos in Tanks and Blunt/Copeland-run World Music Group, on March 4. It features Martyn and DVA sinking deeper from their combined dubstep and DnB past into a dub-infused haze, while Copeland carries on with the fractured universal hip hop of Hype Williams along a uniquely smoky vocal.**
