Boiler Room is a website that hosts live music sessions with an invite-only audience in mostly private locations, and then streams the performances live on their website and through services such as YouTube. They started in March 2010 in London and has since hosted sessions with such notable artists such as Thom Yorke, Flying Lotus, Carl Cox, Erykah Badu, Madlib and more. Though the artists they host mostly perform DJ sets, they recently hosted a session with Japanese stoner rock trio Boris and noise Godfather Merzbow.
The session we're featuring here is a set from turntablist/producer Teeko in San Francisco, whom famed producer Mark Ronson called "The most insane & creative turntablist I have ever worked with" and who DJ Jazzy Jeff himself said was "...the funkiest most soulful turntabilist I have ever seen..." This is a great set that combines some live keys, a rare Vestax Controller One Turntable, and live remixing via Traktor. You can stream it live above and also go to the link below and download the audio of the 46 minute session for free. Definitely worth checking out, this guy deserves much more shine. -GodzIL
