What's This?

The accomplished UK label Young Turks hosted a massive, beachfront concert in Tulum, Mexico earlier this month to kick off the New Year. The concert featured some of the best and brightest acts on their roster, in addition to a few unassociated acts like Grimes and Four Tet. The intimate, remote festival showcased Young Turks artists like Sampha, the XX, Chairlift, and SBTRKT, the first instance of these like-minded and familiar artists sharing the same stage. Separate from the concert performances, however, Young Turks also collaborated with Yours Truly to film Chairlift and FKA twigs perform in isolated areas of the outlying Tulum area. FKA twigs’ front woman Tahliah Barnett spent time as a model and a dancer before donning the guise of salacious singer-songwriter, which is does much to explain this riveting, sultry session. Watch FKA twigs perform “Hide” below in a desolate Mayan village, check out the brief documentary of Young Turks’ NYE party and (if you haven’t already) blast SBTRKT’s preview of “Runaway,” premiered at the event.
