Known as one of the original architects of Boiler Room with (then, Platform Magazine’s) Blaise Belville and (now, NTS Radio‘s) Femi Adeyemi, Thris Tian co-established the concept of Boiler Room as a broadcasting space for underground parties, taking the scene online, while keeping the essence underground and opening up to a new international audience.
Thris Tian’s NTS show “Dark and Lovely Global Roots” ran simultaneously with the ascent of Boiler Room and gave Thris Tian the opportunity to use the show as a means to explore and uncover new music, feeding into programming ideas.
Inadvertently the radio show grew and branched out into a number of activities including club nights and festival stages across the world. After five years at Boiler Room, Thris Tian started to explore more of the globe as a DJ while founding Worldwide FM with long time mentor Gilles Peterson.
