If you’re a Magnetic reader, chances are you’ve been to a few or three or four events, have seen a bunch of DJs and pretty much enjoy all things EDM culture. Party people in Los Angeles have a lot of merrymaking options to choose from—be it the trendy side of club culture or something for the nerdy diggers.
Whatever side of the fence you like to get down on, I’ve come to realize that it doesn’t much matter where a party is or who is throwing it, it’s all about the vibe and ambiance. Without those two things, why go, why stay?
Enter Boiler Room LA, a series of events celbrating the forefront of underground sounds. If you’re not yet familiar, check this feature out.
I feel like in LA it is kind of like a melting pot of what’s going on musically…and I hope that we can just be a platform to showcase that for the rest of the world. -Sofie Fatouretchi, Boiler Room LA
The energy and vibe of the simple loft space for Boiler Room 018 was immediately present as I walked into the room. The studio was filled with people that shifted from dancing to nodding their heads as the rhythm and music changed throughout the night. Although there was a steady flow of people that came and went throughout the night there was not a single minute this loft was not crowed.
Shawn Reynaldo warmed up the space with an intoxicating sound and as the evening progressed so did the energy around me. MK, Ghosts on Tape and Santiago Salazar took the music and atmosphere to peak level with Falty DL blowing our minds at the end with some vintage dub and disco house that alternated from fast to—my personal favorite of the night.
So what is Boiler Room about? It's about feeling the music, an ambience in which you enter and absolutely nothing else matters except for sound waves and the people around you enjoying it on the dancefloor. Not all ears can handle Boiler Room, but can yours?
