Watch: Boiler Room does Berlin with Boys Noize, Modeselektor and Gesaffelstein
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Boiler Room. As well as bringing the party to Australia for the first time, the legendary underground streaming site has been hard at work in the Northern Hemisphere, too. Last week, Boiler Room threw one particularly impressive gig: rounding up Boys Noize (in practice for the incoming Future Music Festival tour), Modeselektor, Brodinski, Gesaffelstein and Hercules & Love Affair for one long, long night in Berlin.
Kicking off at 10pm and running til 4 in the morning, Boiler Room’s big Berlin gig was one worth getting jealous over. But as with all Boiler Room sets, the whole point is that not being there doesn’t mean you’ve missed out. Courtesy the BR team, the 60-minute set from Modeselektor and 90-minute respective sets from Gesaffelstein and Boys Noize are now up on the web and available for streaming in all their HD glory. There’s no word yet on whether we’ll get a look at Hercules & Love Affair and Brodinski’s sets – fingers crossed.
In our own neck of the woods, Boiler Room has almost wrapped up a five stop tour spin of Australia. Kicking off with two secret shows in Perth, Boiler Room hit Sydney’s Goodgod Small Club with Cliques heading up the night and did Melbourne’s Sugar Mountain Festival last week. The final stop on the itinerary is an intimate show at The Bottom End in Melbourne this Sunday, where they’ve got Cut Copy DJs and more on the decks. As ever, if you didn’t make didn’t/won’t make it to any of the Australian shows, hold tight ‘til the streams hit YouTube. In the meanwhile, dive into sets from three of Europe’s finest below.
