Boiler Room China was a record breaker

Shanghai and Beijing shows break viewing figure records

After two very sweaty sessions in Beijing and Shanghai, Boiler Room's much-heralded entrance into China looks to have been a big success, with the online TV show having broken its own viewing records here.

The first ever Boiler Room China session - in Beijing on Saturday night - pulled in over 1.3 million views for Le Music with more than 1 million more people tuning in to stream the show live on the Boiler Room's own website. Organisers announced at the opening of Shanghai's packed session last night that those numbers meant a new record for Boiler Room viewers; Shanghai then went on to achieve similar figures, with 1.6 million watching in China.

If you missed out on the event last night or want to relive the blistering sets from some of China's foremost electronic music talents, you can watch them all on Le Music right here without a VPN. You can also see how things went down up north - we especially recommend checking out Howie Lee and Zhang Yang's live set from Beijing:

After kicking off with an eclectic set from Do Hits' Billy Starman, Shanghai's Boiler Room hosted GOOOOSE's out-there electronic sounds and ChaCha and Aivilox's brilliant live show before international headliners Disclosure took to the decks fresh from their slot on the main stage at Strawberry Festival. MIIIA and TzuSing then closed the night out. To see all of them performing while having their personal space invaded by the crowd, you can watch the whole Boiler Room Shanghai show here.

Keep an eye out here for details on the next Boiler Room session in China as and when we get them.
