The Boiler Room returned to Glasgow for the fourth time on Tuesday 21st July. Previous visits had been some of the most energetic and exciting Boiler Room performances that have ever happened. Last year, Boiler Room collaborated with Sub Club to celebrate 20yrs of Subculture with Harri & Domenic alongside Optimo, followed by an Autonomous Africa special with Auntie Flo and Midland; then in March this year an event featuring members of the iconic Numbers label with Jackmaster, Spencer and special guest Lory D.
The seminal Dixon Avenue Basement Jams were the subject of the upcoming Boiler Room at the Sub Club. The Glasgow-based label is renown for its serious club sound with high in energy performances and a true representative of a Glasgow dance floor. Their 12″ releases have found a home not just locally but are a staple edition to many DJ’s record bags around the world. Watch the DABJ documentary below.
Dixon Avenue Basement Jams’ label heads Dan Monox and the Wasp were sure to provide a masterclass in track selection. They, alongside Denis Sulta and Marquis Hawkes, were one of the highlight’s of the DABJ takeover at Sub Club. Their irregular Rinse FM podcasts are something to behold, and a Radio 1 Essential Mix helped to take the label out of Glasgow and cement their position globally.
If that was not enough, they will be joined by DABJ staple Denis Sulta whose two releases on DABJ have been played in mixes, podcasts, radio shows and on dancefloors around the world, by DJ’s ranging from clued-up local residents to some of the biggest names in dance music. It is no surprise that he would be snapped up for a Boiler Room, with “A.A.L.A.S” from his debut Sulta Selects EP, out on DABJ, appearing as one of Boiler Room TV’s featured ‘debut’ tracks. His DJ ability is also paramount; he jointly stole the show at the Subculture and has been appearing at nights across the UK, including a set at the famous London institution, Fabric.
The latest editions to the Dixon Avenue Basement Jams label, Big Miz and Casio Royale, will also be making an appearance on the night. Big Miz has also been tipped by Boiler Room, with “Good Thing”, from the Midnight Man Handle EP, released on 27th of July, also being selected to be one of their debuts.
