‘Mr. Saturday Night’ w/ James Holden


Youthful British electronic artist James Holden has tried it all: stadium trance, kaleidoscopic progressive, meditative downtempo, and at least one bonkers acid trip of a remix that sounds like a very angry stampede reducing an African safari to smoke and rubble. In addition to mixing well-received compilations Balance 005 and At The Controls, Holden has a reputation for being the type of cracking DJ not afraid to let, say, Boards of Canada momentarily anesthetize a dance floor. Holden’s planned appearance at MOMA PS. 1 last summer was cancelled at the last minute, but Warm Up’s loss will be the fans’ gain when he migrates to the comparatively intimate 12-turn-13 along with Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin of Mister Saturday Night.
