The 40-year-old speaker manufacturer has always been a synonym for high quality. Yet, the brand had lost contact to the representatives of the younger generation. The hardcore users, who like to produce their own music from their living rooms.


We joined with London-based music platform Boiler Room, loved and adored by our target group. We created a cross-channeled campaign consisting of three parts:

1) Competition for consumers, where we offered a opportunity to perform your own Boiler Room set 

2) Event + Live Stream 

3) 'Science of Sound' video series to support the collaboration.


Genelec Oy is a manufacturer of active loudspeaker systems based in Iisalmi, Finland. It designs and produces products especially for professional studio recording, mixing and mastering applications, broadcast, and movie production.
