NYC DJ Legend Nicky Siano Urges Boiler Room Boycott

nicky_siano

New York City DJ legend Nicky Siano, whose career behind the decks dates back to spinning at Studio 54, ripped music broadcaster Boiler Room a new one on a now deleted Facebook post on Sunday. What began as a health update to his followers ended in a tirade about a gig gone wrong.

“Oh and FUCK BOILER ROOM those lying assholes,” wrote Siano, who will make his debut at Ministry of Sound in London on August 19.

“3 or 4 years ago they had me pick out a venue, order a sound system, invite co DJ’s AND invite my friends, then they canceled with out telling e and they refused to return my phone calls, I sued one of them and they settled, now I am ready to consider a new lawsuit against those assholes who have fucked over more then 2 major DJ’s I know, DO NOT SUPPORT BOILER ROOM IN ANY WAY! And if u have a problem with them stand up! Go public!”

Siano, who played a Boiler Room set in 2015, later posted a shorter diss. It wasn’t entirely clear what prompted him to lash out on his past dealings with Boiler Room, but it sure made for entertaining reading!
