Global online music broadcaster Boiler Room is launching 4:3, a new multi-genre streaming platform.
Well known for their DJ-set videos and live streams, Boiler Room is set to expand its operation into fashion, film, art and politics. The 4:3 platform will be shared with Boiler Room’s colossal global audience, which reaches 157 million people every month. 4:3 is expected to feature curated cultural video content, supported by events, screenings, live music, installations and DJ sets.
4:3 is the “Netflix of the underground"
“4:3, is for a culturally connected audience, the Netflix of the underground. 4:3 aims to expand gateways between image and sound by living across social channels, websites and physical spaces, filled by curated seasons and themes with a mix of archive and underground films, challenging the notions of high and low art.”
Elijah Wood, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Peaches and Jenn Nkiru have been announced as the first guest curators, which officially launched on 29th May. 4:3’s first original commision will be ‘Fleshback: Queer Raving in Manchester’s Twilight Zone’.
