Every Saturday every summer, MoMA PS1 presents Warm Up, a event series taking place in their enormous courtyard. The museum—MoMA’s longstanding sister site in Long Island City, Queens—is a lightning rod for new and exciting artists, and each week’s performers inhabit a similar space in the music world. To ensure a great, current and diverse schedule, the lineup—with oversight from MoMA PS1 director Klaus Biesenbach and organized by MoMA PS1 assistant curator Eliza Ryan—is selected by a team of heavy hitters: Dean Bein, head of True Panther Sounds; Kris Chen, head of A & R at XL Recordings; Robin Carolan, head of Tri Angle Records; Jonathan Galkin, co-founder of DFA Records; Brandon Stosuy, editor at Pitchfork and contributing editor for The Believer; and Matt Werth, label head of RVNG Intl.
Every Thursday throughout the summer, as a warm up to Warm Up, FADER and MoMA PS1 will be posting an exclusive mix from one of the artists performing. This week, we have a 90 minute mix from Slava, which he has titled “Dick Pussy Mix.” He is a bit of a mastermind with the quick and raunchy and this mix exemplifies that. It’s also a bit of a step away from the heavy, weird footwork he’d been so excellently hammering; highly recommended. Download the mix below and see Slava along with Van Rivers, Oneman, Sinkane and MJ Cole this Saturday. And, hey, this year you can skip the line and pick up tickets.
