BAKROOM’ A NEW MUSICAL MELTING POT
“AT BAKROOM IT’S ABOUT THE ARTIST, THE AUDIENCE, BUT ULTIMATELY, THE MUSIC”
Bakroom, set up in 2014 – an electronic music label created by Irish producer/DJ Christian Boshell.
Bakroom is an eclectic electronic music melting pot of productions by established artists.
The catalogue thus far consists of singles and remixes by Code Bushido, Jamez (Touché Records), Roland Klinkenberg, Ben Shaw, Stephen Lopkin, Silinder, Phraktal, Astronivo, Socket Hog, Kluute, Pole Folder, CP, Laurent Maldo, Jules Wells, Tipple, Mike Anderson, Au Voyage, Dave-G and Oud!n13 aka G-Prod.
Label head Boshell has spent over 25 years cultivating his craft, beginning as a staple on the circuit in the thriving early 90s Irish acid-house/ technoscene.
He has shared the bill with stalwarts of electronic music such as Grandmaster Flash, Underworld, Lil Louis Vega, Felix Da Housecat, Danny Howells, Marshall Jefferson, Robert Owens, Tom Middleton, and humbled to mention megastar Prince R.I.P
Several of his productions under different monikers have met with critical acclaim and international success. Featuring on compilations with industry leaders such as Mixmag, ToolRoom and Renaissance.
Touring throughout his 20s he has played in intimate venues, to crowds of tens of thousands at Love Festival in San Francisco, Creamfields, New Zealand, Sweden, Sydney, Renaissance @ Sir Henry’s in Cork in the deep south of Ireland & more recently headlined with Phraktal (one of his collaboration projects) at Body and Soul in Ballinclough Castle.
2018 saw him reveal 3 new production alias’ Static Interference, Socket Hog and Phase Tree.
Boshell explains; “when I want to write music, I usually end up writing something very stylistically different each time. It’s a spiritual cathartic process for me, I engage with multiple artist monikers and collaborations as they allow ineffable freedom to create music I love. Drawing upon my experience lets me tap into the emotion that comes from deep within, without feeling confined by a particular narrative. Under the name Static Interference, I will be focusing all of my Techno and tough electronica productions. The other two pseudonyms ‘Phase Tree’ & ‘Socket Hog’ are projects I foresee myself collaborating with various artists in the future. Phase Tree for the more downtempo, leftfield ambient side of me and Socket Hog for an energetic melodic house and wonky techno sound”.
