SYSTEM BY GAIKA, IN COLLAB WITH BOILER ROOM
Boiler Room presents SYSTEM, a campaign celebrating migration, music and culture 70 years after Windrush.
A month long series in August, SYSTEM, explores the impact of migration on music in the UK and British Culture spanning music, film, editorial and an interactive installation.
SYSTEM is an evocative art installation, exploring themes of immigration, “blackness”, anti-authoritarianism, cultural expression, interchange and raw technical prowess which is at the heart of sound system culture via spatial, experiential and audio-visual interpretation of archival material.
Every Tuesday in August SYSTEM: Future Sounds will open up the installation to up-and-coming members of the sound system community making waves across the UK, with parties curated by fast rising key players Simba, Tudor Lion and Thali.
Thursdays will see Boiler Room and Somerset House Studios host SYSTEM: Sound Series, a line up of parties that explore some of the biggest music scenes and the positive impact of migration on music. Deviation co-founder Judah, Aba Shanti, BBZ and The Soca Kingdom will all take the reins at the installation, showcasing UK Urban, Sound System, International Club and SOCA.
