Danny Brown at MoMA PS1 - 8/25/12 (via @gjhart)
Perhaps keeping MoMA PS1′s contemporary aesthetic in mind, [Danny] Brown started his set with, "Witit," a bonus track from the re-release of his 2011 album XXX. "Witit" was the perfect starter for the first half of the set, which solely featured songs and verses from 2012. The crowd didn't seem to be as familiar with his recent works, especially his guest verses from Childish Gambino's "Toxic" and Ab-Soul's "Terrorist Threats," but they were engaged nonetheless. "Black Brad Pitt" and "Blueberry," tracks with EDM (electronic dance music) instrumentals and producers, had people particularly enthralled. A number of rappers are attempting to embrace EDM without compromising their gruff images, but few do it as comfortably as Brown who makes a living on both sides of the proverbial fence. [Respect Mag]Danny Brown came to NYC over the weekend (8/25) for Warm Up at MoMA PS1 with Just Blaze, Nick Catchdubs, BAIO, (of Vampire Weekend), and The Stallions. FADER caught up with Danny Brown, Nick Catchdubs, and Just Blaze at the show and interviewed them, which you can watch spliced with clips of their sets in a video below. As mentioned, Danny Brown and Just Blaze team up again on Monday (9/3) at City Winery's backyard for a Fool's Gold Day Off party with Flosstradamus, Flatbush Zombies, French Montana, and others. That party goes from 2PM-8PM and is free and all ages. Danny returns to NYC when his tour with A$AP Rocky and Schoolboy Q hits Roseland Ballroom on September 27 (tickets).
In related news, a video recently surfaced from a show that promoters Livin Proof put on in London this past July. In the video, Danny Brown is seen in the studio with TNGHT (aka Lunice and Hudson Mohawke), and many are speculating that it means Danny Brown and TNGHT have collaborative material in the works. If it's true, maybe it will sound something like this?
The Livin Proof video, the video interview from MoMA PS1, and a list of all remaining tour dates are below.
