Kaytranada | Montreal

With over 6 million views and counting, it’s easy to see why this Boiler Room show by the Montreal producer is so popular: It has the perfect combination of irresistible music, infectious good-time vibes, and a wildly appreciative hometown audience that’s almost as entertaining as his set. The TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is at the center of his performance.

Sarah Farina | Berlin

Demonstrating why she’s become such prominent name in the scene, an integral member of Berlin’s Through My Speakers collective, Sarah Farina rolls out a flawless selection of colorful bass music – the sun setting over the Berlin skyline provides the perfect backdrop.

Sbtrkt | London

Masked producer Aaron Jerome, a.k.a.  SBTRKT, shot to fame in 2011 with his breakout self-titled album. Known for his stripped-back fusion of bass experimentation and R&B, his London Boiler Room set brings energy and class by the bucket load. Featuring a KONTROL S4 and a pair of KONTROL F1s.

Modeselektor | Berlin

Sitting at home, desperately wishing you were there and regretting your decision to stay in for the night – it’s a common experience when watching Boiler Room. But Modeselektor’s immense party in a huge, packed-out Berlin venue takes this feeling to almost absurd levels. Featuring a KONTROL S4 and, among other things, a giant confetti cannon.

François K | London
