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.

Mykki Blanco – ‘Feeling Special’

Mykki Blanco. Feeling Special.
20 February 2013

We predict big things for Mykki Blanco (aka Michael Quattlebaum Jr) this year. After last year’s brilliant Cosmic Angel: Illuminati Prince/ss drop and Mykki Blanco & the Mutant Angels EP before that through UNO, there’s the announcement of a follow up with a new persona in the Betty Rubble: The Initiation EP in March.

As a first taster of what to expect, Quattlebaum has posted ‘Feeling Special’ on his tumbr and it’s a moodier wander through the weird wonderland of Mykki Blanco while moaning, in deeper-than-ever vocals, “follow me down that rabbit hole”. He also slips in some lines from the earlier ‘Kingpining’ single, while barren bass lines are provided courtesy of San Francisco producer Matrixxman. The latter happens to be a member of the same 5kinAndBone5 collective who produced Le1f‘s pumping hit ‘Wut’ and points to an even grimier sounds to come. Listen to ‘Feeling Special’ here. **
