Boiler Room made its China debut in spring this year, beginning in Beijing then heading to Shanghai the next day. The series kicked off on a high note with an array of popular underground Chinese DJs, in addition to house superstars Disclosure and Paul Woolford.
Now, IMS Asia-Pacific, in conjunction with OWSLA, will be play host to the popular event on September 29 as part of their Shanghai conference, bringing none other than Skrillex himself. This will be Sonny Moore’s first-ever Boiler Room performance, demonstrating just how much the scene in China, and the event series as a whole, is growing. As per usual, he will be joined by a carefully-selected group of local DJs, including Zean, Conrank, Damacha, and Cavia.
Skrillex will also be participating in the conference this year, bringing along his OWSLA cohorts Blaise DeAngelo, Lee Anderson, and Tim Smith along to discuss the challenges and efforts of bringing their unique sound over to China.
IMS Asia-Pacific takes place on September 29-30.
