‘The History of the World’ by Jeremy Deller 1996

A visual rationale behind Deller’s 'Acid Brass’, 'The History of the World’ points out the similarities between the post-industrial acid house movement of the twentieth century with nineteenth century brass band music.

The piece acts as the inspiration behind the installations and performances at the Warp x Tate event, with contributions from Oneohtrix Point Never, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and Hellicar & Lewis. The collaborative 'Acid Brass’ project, featuring acid house music arranged for and performed by brass band, will also be performed by Deller and the Fairey Brass Band.

WARPxTATE: we are the gatecrashers

Taking advantage of a security guard’s weak moment, we managed to slip under the railings and the crash into Warp’s party at Tate Britain. Our friend was stopped first in the queue at 6.15 because the space was at capacity… and no one would ever go in later.

London at its best! We create the buzz, we do our marketing stuff but we don’t care if thousands are left outside. And don’t tell me that there aren’t work arounds… like splitting the event over the weekend.

But don’t worry if you didn’t make it. Raving in Tate Britain was a joke. It was more like an obituary or memorial for Rave rather than a celebration. The main space had such a small stage and bad acoustics that only the 100 people in the front could really enjoy something. Projections on the walls were very random and the queues to the bar could easily compete with the queues outside. 

To be fair though, if you didn’t care to see the dj or listen to the music properly, the whole atmosphere was splendid. 

Another big queue for Daniel Lopatin’s (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) sound & light installation ‘Melancholy’ (why?) at least paid off with a seat and very loud music. His composition sounded like a long ka-tching effect that whenever was stopping, lights were spotting on different paintings on the wall. It was oook but nothing remarkable. 

Hudson Mo embraced Chapman Bros quirky sculptures with his beats and Rustie had the honour to populate with noise JMW Turner’s rooms.

I presume that the business goal was achieved. The younger generations finally VISITED Tate Britain… and to be honest I would visit it again in the future to see the exhibits without rave. Although the event was disappointing this doesn’t mean that we stopped loving and admiring Warp.  


At Warp x Tate on December 6th, Warp artists Oneohtrix Point Never, Rustie and Hudson Mohawke will present musical installations inspired by Jeremy Deller’s ’The History of the World’.

Oneohtrix Point Never presents ‘Melancholy’:
As well as releasing numerous records under the moniker Oneohtrix Point Never, Dan Lopatin has contributed music to multimedia installations with Saatchi & Saatchi’s New Director’s Showcase and MoMA before now.

His debut album on Warp Records, ’R Plus Seven' is out now.

Hudson Mohawke presents 'Summers of Love’:
Since the release of, 'Acrylics’, the latest record from his production partnership with Lunice - TNGHT, Hudson Mohawke has lent his production skills to numerous albums this year including releases by Kanye West, Pusha T and Drake.

Acrylics' was released in April this year.

Rustie presents 'RAVE’:
Having won The Guardian’s 'First Album Award’ for his 2011 album 'Glass Swords’, Rustie has since worked with Danny Brown and performed at festivals across the world.

Music ‘Boring Angel’ by Oneohtrix Point Never.

On Friday 6th December 2013, Warp Records collaborated with Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller and Tate Britain for a free night of installations and performances inspired by Deller’s work 'The History of the World’.

Warp x Tate featured live performances from Jeremy Deller’s Acid Brass, Darkstar and patten as well as installations by Oneohtrix Point Never “Melancholy”, Hudson Mohawke “Summers of Love”, Rustie “Rave”, Hellicar & Lewis (w/ Arthur Carabott and John Nussey) “A tribute to 808 and 303” and Palace “Civil Unrest”.

Jeremy Deller, an English conceptual, video and installation artist, presents an evening of performance and installations around his work ‘The History of the World’ at the Warp x Tate event on December 6.

Deller has become known for producing collaborative and often political works, he won the Turner Prize in 2004, and was awarded the Albert Medal by the RSA for 'creating art that encourages public responses and creativity.’

For more information on Jeremy Deller, head to his page on Wikipedia, further details of the Warp x Tate event are available here.


We’re really excited to share this incredible space with you all tonight. We hope everyone who wants to attend can do so through the night and that the process of entry is smooth and painless. 

As the Tate Britain is a public gallery, Late at Tate events cannot be ticketed and must be free on a first come first served basis in order to happen. If we hit capacity at a certain stage, as people leave more will be able to enter.

Total capacity is spread across the different rooms of the gallery (see diagram). There will be an additional bar area with DJs not marked here.

The live performances (Jeremy Deller’s Acid Brass, patten andDarkstar) take place in the central main hall with the stage at (1) in the floor plan, so while approximately 500 people will be able to attend the main marked area for these at any one time (see (1), (2), (3) & (9)), there are multiple rooms of leading British Art as well as the new Warp x Tate installations that many more like-minded people will be able to enjoy.

If you are concerned, we will be posting regular updates on theWarp Records and Tate twitter accounts to inform you of the latest situation regarding capacity to help you plan your evening.
