UK broadcasting platform Boiler Room now have over 1.6 million subscribers and almost 600 million video views on their broadcast archive on their YouTube channel, with sets including Disclosure, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Nina Kraviz and other genre topping names.
Today the team at Boiler Room launched a brand new platform called 4:3. Penned as ‘Netflix for the underground’, the website will host a selection of music videos, short films, interviews and more, with playlists including Rave: Archives, Female And Non-Binary Pioneers Of Electronic Music and Scenes, the latter of which highlights electronic music in the OST market.
Expert curators will also guide their own playlists, currently they include Elijah Wood, Peaches, Jenn Nkiru and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
The official description for 4:3 says: “4:3 by Boiler Room is a multifaceted genre-spanning platform for curated and commissioned underground film exploring themes of performance, identity, youth culture and anti-establishment. Like Boiler Room, 4:3 is rooted in physical experience; our events are multi-faceted, connecting the dots between club culture and cinema to stretch the boundaries of what a film experience can be.”
4:3 will also host events under the Boiler Room banner, with the first being an afterparty at Sheffield’s Theatre Deli on Saturday 9th June for Leilah Weinraub’s short film Shakedown. Big Shugga and BBZ will perform.
