This fall Dev Hynes played a pair of rare gigs at the legendary Apollo Theater to support Harlem's Opus 118 School of Music. Billed as Blood Orange and Friends (the friends being Solange, Chairlift's Caroline Polachek, Despot, Nelly Furtado, Le1f, Ratking, and more), the concerts have been memoriali...zed in a radio special presented tonight by Yours Truly and Beats 1.
The Blood Orange and Friends special pairs audio from the Apollo shows along with interviews with Hynes himself from the week of the shows, digging into the art that inspired him in youth (soul, funk, house, and the landmark New York vogue scene documentary Paris Is Burning), the impetus for the Opus 118 benefit shows, the areas in Manhattan that fuel his music, and much more.
