Berlin returns to your screens with another thunderous evening session.
Paul Rose aka Scuba is no stranger to Boiler Room, having recording several sets over the years, showcasing the different periods of his ever evolving, but always trand setting sound. The Hotflush Recordings boss released his fourth album ‘Claustrophobia’ earlier in the year, which signified a shift back to the darker, dubbier sounds with which he originally made his name. It was also remixed by a varied and enviable cast including Function, Mr Tophat & Art Alfie & Len Faki to name a few. Expect exclusives and unreleased tracks from Rose, other Hotflush artists and associates.
Making his long overdue debut for us is the Swedish artist Sebastian Mullaert, who formed the internationally aclaimed duo Minilogue with Marcus Henriksson. Having taken a hiatus from the project in 2014, Sebastian has taken on other ventures such as starting a new label Wa Wu We, releasing on top labels such as Minus, Ovum and Traum Schallplatten, aswell as playing live and recoding a mix CD with Kontra-Musik owner Ulf Eriksson. For this perfomance he will showcase a specially prepared live set.
Another returning familiar face on Boiler Room is Lando. Having previously released on labels such as Hotflush and Rush Hour under his Lando Kal alias and an album on Monkeytown as part of the Lazer Sword duo, 2014 also saw a shift for the Berlin based artist. Teaming up with our own Baron Castle they launched the label Myth Music, with the first two EP’s coming from Lando himself and the third from Dorisburg including a Lando remix. With his recent ‘Stunts’ EP on Jimmy Edgar & Machinedrum’s Ultramajic EP and an appearance in Panorama Bar, Lando is widely being championed as someone whose experiences have resulted in a truly unique take on techno.
Another artist we’ve been watching for a while is the Berlin based Swede Johanna Knutsson. Co-running the labels Zodiac 44 and UFO Recordings as well as previously releasing on the seminal Klasse Recordings, Knutsson has been gathering steam lately via her stripped back DJ sets, which have seen her performing regularly in Panorama Bar and beyond.
Finally we’ll have the Klasse Recordings and Grafiti Tapes boss Luca Lozano, who also co-runs Zodiac 44 with Knutsson. This year has seen Lozano really find his form, releasing some of his strongest work to date via his collaboration EP's with DJ Fett Burger on Klasse Wrecks and with Mr Ho on Crème Organization.
