Miguel/Jamie xx's crowd at MoMA PS1 - 8/4/12
This summer's Warm Up at MoMA PS1, a series featuring afternoon dance parties from forward thinking electronic musicians every Saturday in MoMA PS1's outdoor courtyard, continued this past Saturday (8/4) with sets from Jamie xx, Miguel, Lemonade, Sinjin Hawke, Pearson Sound, and Zora Jones. This one sold out in advance, and the line to get in was crazy long as usual. Many people who didn't have tickets showed up anyway and listened from outside.
Miguel performed a brief yet galvanizing set with his neon-clad backing band, delivering one of the few "concert" experiences of the evening and giving the thousands crammed into the gravel-floored courtyard something to scream about with a handful of weather-appropriate nü-R&B tracks off his forthcoming LP Kaleidoscope Dream in addition to a newly rap-infused performance of one of his well-worn covers, 2Pac's "I Get Around."Jamie xx at MoMA PS1 - 8/4/12
Meanwhile, for Jamie xx, Warm Up was one of two DJ sets he delivered this past weekend while in town in between The xx's Terminal 5 show last Thursday (8/2) and their Staten Island show, which is TONIGHT (8/6) at Snug Harbor Music Hall (sold out). Jamie premiered a new xx song during his set, and had the crowd going pretty nuts. After that show, he headed over to Manhattan to DJ a FIXED party at Le Poisson Rouge with John Talabot, who will be supporting The xx on many of their upcoming dates (none in NYC) and will return to LPR for a live show with Pional on September 27. Some videos of Jamie and John's sets from LPR are below.
Jamie xx wasn't the only one on Saturday's Warm Up lineup to keep the party going late into the night. Lemonade showed up in Williamsburg to DJ a party at Glasslands with Blondes and Rewards, and they killed it. Meanwhile, Sinjin Hawke was next door murdering 285 Kent with Egyptrixx, Elite Gymnastics, N0ms, Gobby, and MikeQ. Blood Diamonds, who had played Glasslands one night earlier (8/3) with Le1f and Gobby, showed up for a secret late set at the show. A video of Blood DIamonds' set from 285 Kent is below.
More pictures (unfortunately none of Sinjin Hakwe or Zora Jones) from Warm Up and all videos are below.

As mentioned, Bass Squad are hosting the "On the Rocks" summer residency at Drom, which kicked off in May with Baauer and Flosstradamus, continued in June with Nicky Da B and Heartbreak, and in July with Kingdom and Sleepyhead. The August party at Drom goes down tonight (8/2) with LOL Boys, Sound Pellegrino, Thermal Team, Sleepyhead, Crisp, and Alex English. It's a 21+ party, $15 admission, and runs from 10 PM to 4 AM. The flier for tonight's show is below.
LOL Boys just released their Changes EP, which includes four original songs and remixes of the title track by Shlohmo and Anenon. Though it's a little hard to their name seriously, LOL Boys' music is a different story. The new EP works as the chill, sunny afternoon cousin of the ghostly Shlohmo, who they've shared multiple bills with. All vocals on the album (though heavily manipulated) were performed live by guest singers Heart Streets and Angelina Lucero. You can stream the EP in full below or purchase it for $6 on bandcamp.

Toronto producer Egyptrixx (aka David Psutka) released his great debut LP, Bible Eyes, in 2011 on Night Slugs. The album was filled with clattering UK funky patterns and two tracks featured vocals from fellow Canadians Trust. You can watch videos for three tracks off that album, including one of the ones with Trust, "Chrysalis Records," below.
No sign of an Egyptrixx tour at the moment, but he's got a few shows scheduled this summer including one in NYC, which happens on August 4 at 285 Kent with Sinjin Hawke, Gobby, and N0ms. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All known dates are listed below.
David recently announced a new project with Ian McGettigan of Camouflage Nights (and formerly of '90s Halifax indie rock heroes Thrush Hermit) called Hiawatha, who will release their debut album, Language, on September 25 via Last Gang. The first single, "Caring Less and Less to See and Know You," which you can stream below, is a noisier affair than David's work in Egyptrixx and moves more like the post-punk spiked synth pop of Chromatics than the scattered beatwork of Egyptrixx.
That song stream, videos, and a list of all dates below...
Jamie xx with The xx at Webster Hall in 2010 (more by Bao Nguyen)
As mentioned, The xx will be on a tour in support of their new album, Coexist (due out 9/11 via Young Turks), this summer which brings them to NYC for a show at Terminal 5 on August 2. That show has long sold out but Jamie xx will be sticking around NYC to play the FIXED show at Le Poisson Rouge on August 4 that John Talabot is DJing. Tickets for that show are still available.
The LPR show is also the same day that Jamie plays Warm Up at PS1 (8/4) with Lemonade, Pearson Sound, Sinjin Hawke, and Zora Jones. Miguel has also been rescheduled to perform on this date instead of the July 21 Warm Up he was originally set to play. TIckets for that show are available
Lemonade will also DJ a free party at Glasslands that night (8/4) after Warm Up.
All Jamie xx dates are listed below, alongside a stream of his 2011 single, "Far Nearer"...
