I-D MAGAZINE

THE FADER
‘It’s basically an extension, or even evolution, of London’s rich pirate radio culture. A small, sweaty room. Great DJs. The odd live performance. Red Stripe. Rum.’

BENJI B
‘There is always something good happening in London. It’s about finding a new platform to do what you do – see the Boiler Room sessions – which in many ways come from the same heart and soul as deviation.’

DEFECTED
‘Owing to its early, unstoppable success, Boiler Room has now moved off of Ustream and on to its own website. It’s the 21st century digital answer to pirate radio.’

FABRIC LONDON
‘Innovations like the London based Boiler Room have taken that idea of a live broadcast via the Ustream medium and applied it differently. In a short time Boiler Room has grown from a concise group of people crammed into an actual boiler room of a warehouse to a weekly event broadcast live from London venues.’

From February to July 2015 six artists will produce new works to exist within and contribute to Boiler Room. What comes out of these infiltrations, and how they inform our experience of this context, is yet to be seen. The project was conceived of and curated by Guy Gormley and developed in collaboration with Boiler Room and the participating artists. Design concept by Amy Preston.

Where do we go when our dog pooing is eternal and our cultural oppression is dominated by yupster hybrids? Mobilised from Rotherham and gentrified by themselves, Euro - the joint product of Richard Sides and Andrew Munk - was the pathetic thesis of the neu-neutral, bioaesthetix immersion zone.
