London club experimenters Deadboy and Murlo, known collectively as DBM, will be playing in New York this Saturday, July 16, as part of MoMA PS1's Warm Up series. In anticipation, they've made a mini-mix that's speckled with grime, UK funky, and a few cuts from the duo themselves. It feels like 20 high-energy minutes in a dark London basement, and complements the vibe of their latest single, the playful, chirpy-synthed "Halo."
"These are a few select tracks we’ve been playing in our sets this month plus a couple of our own unreleased bits," DBM told The FADER over email. The duo weave big-room bass, thick percussive smacks, and silky vocal tracks together seamlessly, showcasing their smooth, expansive takes on U.K. musical tropes. The Champion and Tinashe blend is a definite highlight.
