Tulum Boiler Room set

Maybe Solomun’s most enduring moment is his Boiler Room in Tulum; a two-hour set of summery tech house and multiple side dramas. Seriously, watching the whole video is like seeing five Shakespeare plays rolled into one. But, first let’s talk about stats. 23 million views! It’s the second most watched Boiler Room ever (only 500,000 behind Carl Cox) and has more views than Richie Hawtin, Nina Kraviz and Kaytranada. Why is this? Obviously some views are simply for the music. But the spectacle of ‘Hat Girl’ trying to get Solomun’s attention, the synchronization the DJ has when dancing with his sister, people commenting about Zach Galafanakis’ weight loss – all of these have made the video into one great bacchanalian meme that people can’t help but go back for more of.
