Boiler Room announced their first set of Android and iPhone apps via Twitter.
Boiler Room turned the live streaming game on its head by broadcasting DJ sets and performances. With Red Bull Music Academy, they’ve provided a visible voice for underground electronic music.
Present day EDM culture is showy and loud; Boiler Room juxtaposes this with viewers who tune in to watch DJs and producers perform in small dark spaces.
As of now, the app only offers audio of recorded sets, but they say live streaming is on the way (the homepage currently contains a feed of the latest sets). Users can customize their feed by following artists, but as of right now the follow feature doesn’t seem to be working on iOS.
Artist pages contain links to social media accounts and a list of sets.
Additionally, sets are categorized into channels for easy browsing. There are channels for location, genre, and Red Bull Music Academy. Recordings have buttons for easy sharing and can be downloaded for in-app offline listening.
