Thris Tian (Worldwide FM)
One of the original architects of the Boiler Room, which has grown to become the world’s most respected and popular underground music show. Thris Tian has built a reputation as a passionate and exciting DJ and and demonstrated his natural talent as a music selector.
A musical apprenticeship with Gilles Peterson at his record label Brownswood Recordings provided a solid foundation and saw Thristian naturally graduate to researching for Gilles’ radio shows and gigs, as well as A&Ring for the label. The most important lesson imparted by Peterson was the confidence to develop as a DJ on “instinct” and to embrace the broader spectrum of music from scenes around the world.
The dynamic and eclectic line-ups he had such a part in during Boiler Room are now a pivotal part of Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide fm show, as a regular host and selector extraordinaire, the skies are the limit for the selections you’ll hear throughout any show or set.
