Boiler Room’s Summer Season is here by way of a 6-week-long stretch of broadcast shows and apparel releases. The London-based broadcasting platform aims to celebrate everything that connects the global underground: music, fashion, identities, technology and storytelling. The event will launch alongside a new range of Boiler Room clothing, taking inspiration from club culture and focusing on unconventional dye techniques, new cuts, and woven fabrics. Headlining the collection is a nylon shell pant, designed with a utilitarian outlook featuring zip off legs, 3M piping and Boiler Room’s signature branding. The Boiler Room SS21 Drop #1 is available now via Boiler Room, LN-CC & END.
Parallel to the release of the apparel collection comes a series of broadcasts, including a collaborative show with EASTERN MARGINS, with the goal of raising awareness and funds for the ongoing struggles East/South East Asian communities face on the day to day. There’s also a “Third Space for Grime and Gqom” which draws a virtual bridge between musicians and dancers in Cape Town and London. The project was the winning entry to Boiler Room’s BROADCAST LAB grant scheme and pitched by Nyege Nyege Tapes and Kamva Collective.
The Boiler Room Summer Season begins today, May 14, and runs through to June 30.
