Every Saturday every summer, MoMA PS1 presents Warm Up, an 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. As a warm up to Warm Up, FADER and MoMA PS1 will be posting an exclusive mix from one of the upcoming week’s artists. Today we’ve got Manchester’s legendary A Guy Called Gerald, a pioneer of acid house and jungle, who’ll hold down this Saturday’s Warm Up with Majical Cloudz and Roosevelt. Download Gerald’s mix, read a quick interview and buy tickets here.
