From their small beginnings in a 1930s Dalston boiler room, Blaise Bellville and Thristian Richards’ Boiler Room series has become one of the key forces in underground electronic music. Now, the Boiler Room project is pairing up with G-Star RAW to create the RAW Sessions: a collaborative series of intimate films uniting rising artists with up-and-coming directors, before broadcasting an intimate live music session and party around the world, live from each artist’s home turf.
From London to Paris, Johannesburg and Barcelona, the series will hone in on each artist, capturing their raw energy, creative ethos, their music, attitude and style and responding to G-Star RAW’s Fall/Winter 2015 campaign: “How do you wear yours?” (referencing the denim label’s signature jeans collection). Through both live music events and short films, the RAW Sessions hope to unite the two creative talents and explore what can happen in a journey across two continents. The line-up includes Neverland Clan, Manaré, Piu Piu, Skinny Girls Diet, NSDos, Azamat, Boyzn Bucks, DJ Lag and more.
Boiler Room’s original stomping ground of London opens the RAW Sessions, broadcasting on October 7, followed by Paris on October 20, Jo’Burg October 29 and Barcelona November 12. Watch the London session’s trailer with Skinny Girl Diet Band and Neverland Clan above.
