Boxout.fm is an online radio station borne of an urgent need for a community-run platform focusing on alternative music and culture in India. In order to serve the community’s needs and help it thrive, we offer a carefully-mined perspective on India’s emergent musical and cultural scenes, both on and off the Internet.
Within the archives of Boxout.fm, you’ll find an authentic patchwork of music programming that is both free from the constraints of genre, and representative of an incredibly-diverse musical landscape.
From the rap music of the subcontinent’s contrasting gullies to the dynamic dance music that informs its growing club culture to the multitude of windows offering a peek into India’s rich cultural heritage with a healthy nod towards its global outlook, our daily programming offers up musical discovery like few others do.
Boxout.fm places some of the country’s most dedicated musical minds alongside DJs, selectors, commentators and cultural icons from all over the world.
Fully cognisant of a need to take more music to people, boxout.fm hosts weekly and monthly residencies at clubs and cultural spaces around the country. In addition, our own fanzine – theplug.news – is currently distributed at 25 outlets across India and is our call-to-action.
