Boiler Room Breakdowns: Skream B2B Disclosure

It’s been awhile since our last Boiler Room Breakdown, so we thought we’d return with a classic. It’s been over three years now, since that fateful night when Skream and Disclosure joined forces in a poorly lit hotel suite but many YouTubers still love to revisit the moment over and over and over again. Aron Sohilait for one; “2016 and still listening” whilst Pat Sty comments; “it’s 2016……. still a legendary set.” But what is it that gives this particular Boiler Room session such replay value? The mix itself, whilst far from technically perfect, is a wild selection of musical ... Read more

Boiler Room Breakdowns: Kaytranada’s Divine Comedy

After the success of Solomun’s Shakespearean tragedy (and the amount of fun we had writing it), we started wondering what we could tackle next, and Kaytranada’s Montreal session came up almost immediately. Sure it doesn’t have anywhere near the views that Solomun’s video does and it’s less than half the length but it is packed with content. It also doesn’t have the tragic story line.. See also: Boiler Room Breakdowns – Solomun Tulum Kaytranada’s Boiler Room, in many ways, is a comedy, a Divine Comedy, full of eccentric characters and unlikely events.
