A team from Munich seeing their city in a different perspective and trying to make a difference even if it’s on a smaller level. We hope for it to grow into something wonderful & meaningful. The Boiler Team is a group of like-minded people vibing from music & social art.
Quite some time has passed since our last show at the Import/Export in August with Mike Gao. Thus we are glad to announce our comeback for coming Saturday the 21st of January, where PHON.O from Berlin will join us for the 17th edition of our boiler clubnight.
And this guy surely is one to look forward to. Having been around the scene since the 90ies he clearly left his mark in electronic music not only in Germany, but worldwide. Having released for labels such as Cytrax, Shitkatapult, Boyz Noize and Monkeytown/50WEAPONS, he travelled the world back and forth, playing shows where ever his way led him. Also definately worth mentioning are his collabo projects: The Bareback Show and CLP with Chris de Luca of Funkstörung. Definately a busy man.
In this decade, PHON.O concentrates on new solo tracks, remixes and his residency at the WMF Club in Berlin. To get a glipmpse on the PHON.O sound of 2011/2012, you might wanna check out his mix for Resident Advisor. It was part of an in-depth coverage on Modeselektor’s 50WEAPONS imprint. Right below you have his latest release on 50WEAPONS, the ABAW723/Sad Happiness EP.
So, looking forward to see you around on Saturday at the KONG, Prielmeyerstrasse 6 in Munich. Support will be provided by Cat People and Larkin And The Sky. Doors 10pm, admission will be something about 10€. Let’s go.
Just a little more than a week ago we were happy to have an enchanting boiler summer get together at the Import/Export. Mike Gao from Los Angeles joined us with a liveset and Jay Scarlett, tom2k, Larkin And The Sky and SLOMOO held it down on the resident side. Good vibes really, and thanks especially to Mike for putting an extra smile on people’s faces! True G and Pimp you are.
We will continue to do off-sessions in different locations for now, so be prepared for some related announcements very soon! Special thanks also to Camillo Büchelmeier for documenting this. Will put up the other pics on our flickr on the next update as well.
July. 30 degrees. Cold beer. Ladies in bikinis. Ice cream. Summer in the city! Nontheless it’s been a while. Time for some boiler action! We are pleased to announce the guest of our 16th session on the 22nd of July: Mike Gao from Los Angeles, California!
Mike has been in the beat scene since the early beginning. Having won his first beat battles in 2005 he went on from there and released music on labels such as Alpha Pup and All City Records. There is also a forthcoming release on Berlin based label Project Mooncircle this summer. Mike was also one of the first to perform at the famous Low End Theory Club in Los Angeles next to artists such as Flying Lotus, Exile and Nosaj Thing. In addition to his solo projects he also enjoys working with MCs such as Luckyiam, Mestizo and Qwel by producing them, providing beats or supporting them on tour. Mike is also a huge music technology geek. An iPhone App for automatic beatbox detection is just one of the many interesting and forward thinking creations he has provided. Pursuing his PhD Computer Music at the University of California in San Diego he will also hold a talk at the International Computer Music Conference in Huddersfield this year.
Nontheless a boiler night is about music in the first place. So to give you a glimpse on what you can expect on this session, please check Mike’s latest release “Sun Shadows” right below. It has been released on Alpha Pup Records.
In addition to this special live performance we’ll also have the boiler crew in full effect again. Support will be provided by Jay Scarlett, Larkin And The Sky, Trrbo, tom2k and SLOMOO. This boiler session will take place at Import/Export, Goethestr. 30. Doors 23:00, 7€. Looking forward to see y’all bounce!
After our little Trrbo Welcome Gig at the boiler #14 session we have some more family business coming up. Next to the return of the Glitch Happens possy we’ll have another performance straight outta mighty Augsburg: Deniz Khan! You might not know this guy, but he definately blew our minds on the Glitch Happens 2 Year Anniversary Jam last winter. So be prepared for some deep live beats by this multi talented drummer, percussionist, rapper and beatmaker!
The full lineup for the night looks like this:
cLOUD (Glitch Happens)
HKS 51 (Glitch Happens)
Plus we’ll have some kickass visuals provided by John et Paul. So come along & enjoy the new!
May is arriving, and after a short boiler break due to our beloved state of Bavaria’s Tanzverbot, we are back! And we got some good news right away, as the boiler family just got itself a new member! We are very pleased to welcome this guy: Trrbo!
The producer and Dj, originally from Berlin and now based here in Munich, is a guy everyone would want on his team. Talented, charming and always with a smile on his face he rocks the decks as if there was no tomorrow! Having played a remarkable role in the global bass scene with his former project Tim Turbo, he is now following his new passion. Packed with more future bass influences in his sets and productions, he seems to be ready to cross some lines! Be sure to keep an eye on this man, you won’t have much of a chance to get around him anyway. Here’s two of his latest releases, a remix of Madeline Puckette’s Everything Is Alright on Globelle and another remix for Gappy Ranks in collaboration with fellow producer Cat People.
To celebrate this addition he will perform right away at the next boiler session. Next to Jakob joining us we’re also happy to welcome back Daniel aka Larkin And The Sky, who is now back in business with all the inspiration he could gather during his little trip to India. Dj Re$us and LawOne will complete our nice little family jam on that thursday.
So be there when exciting happens! Doors open 10pm at Crux Club, Ledererstr. 3. See you there!
