Having just celebrated their five year anniversary worldwide, the profound live music streaming platform Boiler Room has offered up one of their past live streams as an exclusive XLR8R premiere this week. Taking place at Verboten NYC on October 8, Boiler Room x Fiat partnered up to present IMPORTS, a free show aimed at celebrating the transatlantic link between club culture in both Italy and the U.S. while recognizing the musical influence that early 80's Italo-Disco has had on modern pop, house, and techno.
The night saw performances from Jacques Renault, Juan Maclean x Nancy Whang (playing back to back for the first time ever), Los Angeles-based duo Classixx, and the spirited San Francisco group Honey Soundsystem. You can watch Honey Soundsystem's performance in the video posted above and you can also listen to Jaques Renault's "Introduction to Italo-Disco" set in the Soundcloud link below.
