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 curatorial assistant 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, it’s Ford and Lopatin. The New York duo are into dance music the same way Brian Eno was into dance music, long and lean, the kind of slinky that works for solo hashish or some friendly boning. Download the mix below and see Ford and Lopatin live, along with Solange, Blood Orange, Juan Maclean, Pictureplane and Grimes this Saturday at PS1.
