MUMBAI: Yet another international concept is prepared to make its Indian debut. 2016 welcomed a series of firsts with Electric Daisy Carnival, Global Citizen and Don't Let Daddy Know, and now joining the list is underground music’s online broadcaster – Boiler Room. Yes, the acclaimed home of the online streaming party concept has joined hands with Budweiser’s What’s Brewing In to continue the trend that began in 2010.
On 1 December 2016, Indian electronica artists – Sandunes, _RHL and Oceantied will feature in the Budweiser X Boiler Room What’s Brewing In, curated by Boiler Room and British techno musician ‘Actress’. The founder of Werk Discs has flitted between electro, hip hop, house and techno, never once ceasing to excite and innovate.

Following on from Derrick May's stint as Brussels escort, Budweiser X Boiler Room heads to India, specifically Mumbai - for the first time with the help of Actress - the immensely talented, English electronic experimentalist. Joining him for Boiler Room’s debut session in India will be the classically-trained electronica producer Sandunes to Bengaluru-based multi-instrumentalist Oceantied and _RHL, one half of downtempo double-act, Sulk Station.

Know more about the concept ‘Boiler Room’
Having been described as dance music’s Internet streaming party, Boiler Room has – since it was founded in 2010 by Blaise Bellville – evolved from a webcam taped to a warehouse wall to a global broadcaster streaming the best in underground music, from techno and hip hop to jazz and contemporary classical. With its award-winning content, Boiler Room reaches more than 157 million people per month.
The self-proclaimed online home of the underground gives the audience the chance to hear fresh dance music without setting foot in a club and most importantly, also a chance to hear music that rarely gets played in a club.
