Music TV for the internet age.
Boiler Room televises underground music as it happens from around the world to a massive online community. By doing so, we create windows into scenes and sounds from every corner of the globe, connecting millions of music heads with the specific music they love. This communal participation has redrawn the map for underground culture and proven that mass audiences now subscribe to alternative choice.
Whether it’s finding out what really goes on in Warsaw’s hidden clubs, crate-digging deep in the heart of Mumbai or getting to grips with the political lyricism behind New York’s spoken word movement, Boiler Room exists to broadcast the best music scenes, subcultures and stories from across the world. From the last ever video of a Mâalem Mahmoud Guinia performance to the first ever broadcast of Notting Hill Carnival, we want to celebrate moments in music history and tell the stories never broadcast before.
Our output comes via four Channels representing the musical worlds we broadcast from – 1) grime, UK garage & worldly club sounds; 2) house & techno beamed via Berlin and beyond; 3) rap, trap and soulful rhythms; and 4) live bands through to the distinctly weird and wonderful. Our hosts present shows, curate playlists and publish newsletters keeping you in the loop with what’s happening from across those scenes every week.
We believe where you live shouldn’t dictate what movements & sounds you can be part of. We’re a global family passionate about the ability music has to bring people together and to help solve some of the problems we all face. Boiler Room’s job is to broadcast the best of it, capturing its essence and disseminating it around the world, for our generation.
Lean back & get comfy, music TV 2.0 is here.
