FACT x MoMA PS1 Warm Up 2015 Mix 1 – Virgo Four

It’s that time of year again.

Every summer for the last 18 (!) years, MoMA PS1 has invited audiences to check out Warm Up, an outdoor music series presenting the best in underground, experimental music each Saturday, and 2015’s selection is looking unmissable. FACT have teamed up with the Warm Up crew to present a special series of mixes – one each week to coincide with the shows – so even if you’re nowhere near New York City, you can still enjoy this year’s lineup from afar.

The first installment of the series comes from a very special guest indeed – Merwyn Sanders of influential Chicago house pioneers Virgo Four (previously Virgo). The house troupe were pulled from obscurity five years ago when Rush Hour reissued their debut (and only) self-titled 1989 album, following it with a five-LP boxset Resurrection in 2011 that collected the rest of the band’s recordings. Much has been made of the resurgence of deep house in the last few years, but Virgo Four are the real deal.

Warm Up is every Saturday until September 5 at MoMA PS1, and if you need more information (including the excellent lineup) make sure you check the website immediately.
