Justin Timberlake: Justified
on 15 September 2013
Likely influenced by Timberlake's 15-minute solo medley performance at the VMAs, Boiler Room's music director Thristian Richards chose Timberlake's first album Justified for this week's #PrivateJam. As—what appears to be—a longtime JT fan, Richards adds, "I'm also jealous of his dance moves." Seeing as the Boiler Room is a staunch supporter of underground music and scouts nonconformist artists to perform in intimate settings, it's nice to learn that Richards has a soft spot for the mainstream—and perhaps he was inspired by Grimes' recent controversial Boiler Room DJ set featuring pop hits from Venga Boys, Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift.
