Earlier this month, Boiler Room partnered with Ballantine’s on its biggest blowout to date. Under the banner “Stay True Scotland,” the party was broadcast from four different venues throughout Edinburgh and now, a headlining set from much-loved veteran DJ Heidi is public. A native Canadian who decamped to London over a decade ago, Heidi was one of the original founders of Phonica—an industry standard among record stores—and holds down a regular slot on BBC Radio 1. She’s also worked closely with the Get Physical label (whose founder DJ T revealed some new music this week) and spearheads the Jackathon event series. Opening with the Foremost Poets’ “Moonraker,” she delivers a tech-y and muscular hour-long session for Boiler Room in the video above.
