Tuesday night I had the chance to visit the infamous Boiler Room in Los Angeles hosted at Innovative Leisure headquarters. The night included a solid lineup featuring sets from  Gossamer, D-Tiberio, Low Limit, Classixx, Nosaj Thing, and a live performance from Rhye. Each artist brought a different touch to the table creating a flow of energy that continued throughout the night.  Some of my personal highlights included Low Limit dropping Foe Tha Love of $ by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Classixx unveiling new tracks, and finally witnessing Nosaj Thing live. After streaming Boiler Room sets from my computer for sometime is was interesting to finally be on the other side and see how the night played out from beginning to end.

If this is your first time hearing about the Boiler Room then I highly suggest you get familiar with the program. The Boiler Room began in 2010 in London and has since then expanded to cities across the world hosting underground events in secret locations with live streams hosted on their website. Some of the artists that have made their way behind the lens for sessions include Toro Y Moi, Flying Lotus, RL Grime, Diplo, Alexander Split, and others. You can catch up on past sessions and stay up to date with upcoming streams on their website. Enjoy!
