On Tuesday, M.I.A. kicked off her Matangi album release with a party at The 1896 in Bushwick, Brooklyn as part of Soho House 's new music and arts series, Satellite Nights. For the event, mixed-media artist Jose Carlos Casado created colorful projections that showcased his new collaboration with Swatch and M.I.A . Casado's psychedelic installation pulled from M.I.A.'s visual history, using colors and themes that have appeared in her album art, music videos, and clothing. M.I.A. performed a live set for the event, and DJs followed her act late into the night.
