personally, I find the visual aspect to The Boiler Room doesn't necessarily add that much value to the listening experience...May have been posted before but wanted to gauge opinion on what makes a great boiler room set/performance
I know ppl have their opinions on the whole boiler room scenario. Pretentious pricks hoggin screen time (audience members, not dj's) Etc etc.
But what makes a great boiler room set for you?
Made you appreciate another genre?
None of the above, you just f**kin loved it?
As a self confessed trance addict/ trance dj I was rarely receptive to other forms of musical expression until I seen one of Solomuns boiler room sets.
Single handedly changed my music library!!!!
Led me down a road of techno, high tech minimal and tech house that I never would have seen myself go down. A few minutes of 1 dj on youtube changed my whole outlook on what I enjoyed to play/mix and hear. Was it him or the track list? I think a mixture of both
Post your favourite Boiler Room sets here ppl and enjoy the diversity. It may just change your perspective on things
You get to see all the funny people dancing in the backround.if anyone can explain what the Boiler Room uniquely offers that soundcloud, mixcloud, spotify, podomatic, podcasts, radio transmissions, embedded mixes, blog links and live streams do not, then I'm all ears....
It gives you the opportunity to see the dj looking very awkward pushing buttons,shuffling about,whilst pretty girls watch,and also look awkward trying to dance and look cool at the same time..if anyone can explain what the Boiler Room uniquely offers that soundcloud, mixcloud, spotify, podomatic, podcasts, radio transmissions, embedded mixes, blog links and live streams do not, then I'm all ears....
Hahahahah never realised how funny boiler room can be! Lesbos at the front making me laugh with their dancing and the small guy with the black top looks like me on a line of Coke haA Boiler Room all time classic
I like Maceo Plex but honestly this set is all about the Ellum guy, he stole the show. And the couple at min 1:30 ish. And the guy at min 4:00 ish who's having an animated discussion with his reflection on the mirror and appears to be undecided whether to kill them all or keep on dancing. The first ten minutes are pure gold.
