All sets from our Streaming From Isolation series are now raising donations directly for Black Lives Matter-affiliated causes - with all money raised this week going directly to NAACP Legal Defense. Read up, support & donate if you can.
Tomorrow we are in Lisbon with "mina" – the collective bringing together ravers & DJs in a techno underground clubbing scene for sexual & gender liberation. Tune in at 1800 BST / WEST.
As part of the series, our long standing partner Ballantine's has committed a fund in the form of 20 grants to be distributed to community-driven collectives around the world. These grants will be given to each collective to distribute as they feel best to support under threat artists and those most in need within their immediate community. This support is critical over the coming months whilst COVID-19 restrictions are in place and impacting many artists’ ability to do what they love and to make a living.
Weekly takeover days of Boiler Room’s channels will feature performances and sets programmed by these collectives from isolation. Broadcast to the world from artists’ homes and private spaces, these transmissions are a way to stay connected while apart.
