Top Fives: Boiler Room Curated by Amar Ediriwira

Ahead of the release of their first collection, Boiler Room's Creative Director, Amar Ediriwira, selects his top 5 Boiler Room sets of all time.

Born in an unused boiler room with a shaky webcam, Boiler Room epitomises the technological revolution in music, club culture and broadcasting.

An undeniable bastion of cutting-edge electronic music broadcasting, Boiler Room has spent the past ten years cultivating a global approach to dance music and club culture. Nurturing a sensibility that transcends physical barriers, the London-based platform have sought to bring the dancefloor to your screens since they were established in 2010. With an emphasis on showcasing underground music subcultures, Boiler Room has presented events from around the globe in over 100 countries – delving deeper into the rabbit hole of electronic music scenes and pulling back the veil to offer an insight into the exciting, the niche, the unknown and the unseen.

Celebrating the platform’s tenth anniversary this year, Boiler Room’s creative director, Amar Ediriwira, selects his top five sets of all time. An eclectic mix of styles and approaches, these five sets truly encapsulate the no-holds-barred approach that has made Boiler Room such an important and necessary fixture in the world of electronic music.

HELENA HAUFF - AMSTERDAM, 2017
"Electro royalty Helena Hauff taking the roof off at Dekmantel 2017 is a stone cold Boiler Room classic."
SAMA' ABDULHADI - RAMALLAH, 2018
"When Boiler Room made history with a trip to Palestine in 2018, the star of the show was the (then) relatively unknown techno DJ Sama' Abdulhadi."
SHERELLE - LONDON, 2018
"Sherelle literally has to protect the decks from too many reloads in this set - which has got to be one of the rowdiest BRs of all time."
LSDXOXO - PARIS, 2019
"This set was one hot power hour with NYC via Berlin icon LSDXOXO at our raucous party in Paris with Fusion mes Couilles last year."
SHY ONE - LONDON, 2020
"This Thursday night dance courtesy of Shy One was one of the best 2020 moments, broadcast live from a rooftop in locked down SE London."
