Boxout.fm is India’s first online community radio platform that curates independent music and introduces Indian listeners to new artists to tune in to. Launched on April 7, the idea was to have a singular platform for alternate and independent music which is beyond the commercial gibberish being mas fed on the radio.
India’s burgeoning music scene had been lacking a dedicated platform that could curate music for the independent music community. Boxout.fm is filling that gap by bringing on DJs, guest mixers, hosting live shows and interviews with independent artists and bands. There’s always intriguing and engaging content going on at this radio, whether it’s an interesting host or a brand new schedule or some sick beats.
Not only providing recognition, but they also create music from around the world. Hosted by DJ MoCity in Delhi, there are various genres and themes to browse through. You can tune into homegrown artists for free. The website has a comprehensive list of shows, a schedule of what can be expected (in terms of guests and artist line-up) and videos (with really interesting graphic illustrations). You can also check out their podcasts and over 70+ radio hosts.
They were also going to conduct Boxout Weekender as a celebration of them turning 3 years old, but in lieu of the Coronavirus pandemic, they’re taking the party online on their Facebook page, with continuous streaming of their previous performances.
