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 an excellent collaboration between two of Saturday’s artists, Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones, both Barcelona based DJs and producers. The two previously collaborated on the track “Sparklers” and have been going head-to-head as a DJ team. This joint mix features a lot of unnamed exclusives, an emphasis on bass of all kinds, a fondness for quick and trippy drums, hyperactive keyboards and snippets of voice. It’s wild with a necessary droplet of control, which is hopefully how Saturday will go down. Download the mix below and see Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones along with Lemonade, Miguel, Pearson Sound and Jamie XX this Saturday. And, hey, this year you can skip the line and pick up tickets.
