FADER/MoMA PS1 Warm Up Mix: Darq E Freaker

August 13, 2013

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 top-tier grime producer Darq E Freaker, who'll hold down this Saturday's Warm Up with J. Cole, King Britt, Bangladesh, Mr. MFN eXquire and more. Download Darq E Freaker's mix, read a quick interview and buy tickets here.

What is your favorite summer jam right now? I gotta close the window before I record, 'cause New York don't know how to be quiet…

What's the best summer vacation you ever took? It's going to be this trip to New York to play MoMA PS1 alongside J. Cole & Bangladesh.

Who is a visual artist that you admire, and why? Duval Timothy. I admire him for his use of colour in his creations and the fact that he mixes contemporary themes with modern art. His ability to draw you into his visual pieces through the way he chooses to play with colour as well as his eye for juxtaposition and the continuous motifs that run through his recent works. He's one to watch, check him out!

What's your favorite summertime snack, and where do you get it? Butterkist Sweet Cinema-style popcorn and I get it from wherever can.
