In the ninth of the Boiler Room Make Sessions, Red Stripe will team up with innovative visual projector movement BYOB lead by creative curator Rafaël Rozendaal, for a one off night on 22nd July at the world’s number one underground music show Boiler Room.
Make Session 009 will showcase the best in experiential and visual art work. Whilst Mark Ronson, DJ Drama and Giggs play the biggest rhythms and rhymes from across the globe, BYOB will present their creative projections and pieces of artwork in an experiential exhibition like no other. This taps into the DIY ethos of Boiler Room and Red Stripe, as 15 artists create a patchwork of visual projections in the concrete basement venue. This is the first time Boiler Room will feature a visual collaboration on this scale, and this will all be achieved through a live broadcast.
Heading up the night is true titan of the scene, the legendary musician and producer Mark Ronson who has teased the best out of such artists as Jay-Z, Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse and more. He will be setting the crowd alight with his retro-soul sounds and smoky bars. And joining one of the most in-demand artists in the industry is DJ Drama. Like Mark Ronson, DJ Drama has worked with some huge names including Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Tyler the Creator, 2 Chainz and more. The undisputed King of the mixtape, (most notoriously the Gangsta Grillz series) will be bringing the freshest and harmonious hip-hop to your ears. Following Mark Ronson and DJ Drama, is home-grown, Peckham-based rapper, Giggs, as he unleashes aural warfare presenting the grimiest beats and bangers. This star studded line-up with the visionary projection display is not one to be missed
BYOB founder Rafaël Rozendaal said: “It will be amazing to work with both Red Stripe and Boiler Room in a project that truly promotes creativity. We are looking forward to showcasing some of the best projection artists from BYOB.
Blaise Belville, founder of Boiler Room, said: “This is the first time Boiler Room will feature a visual collaboration on this scale, and all to the sounds of such renowned, globally successful artists. Viewers are in for a real treat.”
Red Stripe’s Claire Prat said: “We are so proud to be working on project that promotes innovation in art, culture and music. We are really looking forward to Make Session 009.”
