Livemusic caught up with Boiler Room co-founders Blaise Bellville and Thristian bPm at the opening of their new residence in East London. After a series of shifting 'pop-up' locations, a new warehouse in Hackney Central has become a permanent home for their exclusively guest listed events. If you been under a rock, or in a pencil case, or in Falmouth, Boiler Room may have gone undetected by your culture radar, so let us recap...
Boiler Room is a global phenomenon that hosts private parties showcasing the skills of the best DJs in the game. The events are streamed live over the internet and the mixes can be subsequently downloaded/viewed/shared/discussed and critiqued. The sets spun are bedroom jams focussing on the 'other' records in one's collection, in this regard it is painfully refreshing. Boiler Room doesn't insist you drop eleven gorilla biscuits and paint yourself in party glitter. You can get pissed up at the actual bashment or watch live in the comfort of your living room via the Ustream feed that accompanies every Boiler Room - your shout.
We pootled along on February 21st - it was a special event! Not only were the talents of Buddy Peace, Boom Pip and Jneiro Jarel on display, but Hackney Central was also blessed by the mysterious talents of mask-garbed-hip-hop legend MF DOOM. Great tunes and mellow vibes made for an intoxicating affair. All was going well until some penis in a red jumper - with seagulls and snowmen or some shit shit stitched on it - decided I was walking too fast when trying to encourage my cameraman to get a particular shot. We exchanged words, I decided he was a prick and pent up my displeasure for this article. So if you're listening douche stick at 0.26 secs - watch your manners!
Ahem - excuse me - moving on, Boiler Room has been branded with the epithet 'hip', an apt byname because frankly these events are fucking cool! The tunes are always second to none and the clientele genuine music enthusiasts. Livemusic couldn't encourage you enough to get involved with this menhir of soirees - head over to the Boilerroom now for more info. Happy listening/watching/dancing/sexing and smoking people!
