Cashmere Cat, GoldLink, and More Rock MoMA PS1’s Warm Up

This past weekend, the Mass Appeal crew headed out to MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, Queens for the latest installment of their “Warm Up” summer concert series. The diverse lineup, consisting of Cashmere Cat, Total Freedom, GoldLink, UNiiQU3, and Suicideyear led to a motley mix of music lovers turning out and up. We stayed out drinking a little too long before the show and missed Suicideyear, which was a bummer. However, we were equally buzzed and got over it pretty quickly and onto enjoying the remaining acts.

UNiiQU3 performed a set consisting of Jersey Club-meets-trap-inspired tracks, finding the right balance between commanding the crowd’s attention with the mic and letting the music do the talking. Next, GoldLink hit the stage— winning the crowd over early with his palpable energy— to perform cuts from The God Complex, as well as newer joints like “Sober Thoughts” and an unreleased track with up-and-coming emcee Chaz French. Total Freedom followed with a set blurring the line between “I think I can name this genre” and “Wait, what the fuck am I listening to?” It was equally terrifying and mesmerizing.

Shortly afterwards, grime artists Skepta and Jammer delivered a surprise performance, which was essentially a sample of their hits to get the Yanks familiarized. Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, joined his fellow UK natives onstage for an impromptu performance of his new single “High Street,” which features Skepta. Finally, Cashmere Cat bashfully strolled onto the stage and had the crowd going nuts before he’d even dropped his first track. While his demeanor was rather timid compared to the other acts, the Norwegian producer’s reserved appearance was actually masking his intent focus on executing picture perfect blends and transitions.

Check out the flicks from the event below.

For the Suicideyear fans: While we didn’t catch him at MoMA PS1, we did peep his latest track with Rome Fortune and fellow producer outthepound, “Trap Lady,” which you can listen to here.
