It’s been a long time coming but Dublin will finally see it’s debut Boiler Room on May 28th. Hangar are prepped to host the party and Irish label Glacial Sound are going to take the lead with Bloom, Shriekin, Major Grave, Glacial Sound and Gemma Dunleavy billed as the acts for the premiere event.
“Grime and Ireland are two nouns that are rarely uttered in the same breath. For many years, grime was a tale solely narrated by London inner city heads before eventually spreading into the Midlands and beyond. At first glance, it may seem like Dublin doesn’t share a lot with those places. Yet dig a little deeper and you’ll find the parallels. The geography may not be the same, but the emotional ties and outright feelings couldn’t be closer.
It’s only natural that our maiden trod on Irish turf is then in celebration of a micro scene – continuing our attempt to provide an entry point into the music we’re most excited about.”
You can check out all the information about it from the Boiler Room timetable, including set times and event info. It looks like this is not an opportunity to be missed – just make sure you’re mates with ‘someone in the know’ by the 28th….
