It didn't take long for The Boiler Room to become one of UK bass music's biggest online presences. In fact, it's only been a year since they started broadcasting, and they're already a household name, having hosted live sets and podcasts from the likes of Cooly G, Karizma, Jamie xx, and all our collective favorites. This Thursday, June 9, the webcast portal will be hosting its first birthday party, and naturally they're pulling out all the stops. Starting at 8 p.m. GMT, and carrying on for five hours, you can expect sets from Floating Points, Kutmah, The Shining, and Jamie xx, plus a very special three-way B2B2B set with recent XLR8R featurees Ben UFO, Jackmaster, and Oneman, and some surprise guests (natch). If you're lucky enough to find yourself in London that night, you can catch it all in the flesh for a mere 10 quid at Corsica Studios (nearest the Elephant & Castle tube stop). And for those who just can't wait for some tunes from these hard-hitters, check out Ben UFO's and Oneman's XLR8R podcasts from a few months back, and then peep the flier below for more info.
