With the goal to support over 100,000 artists using their studios, PIRATE have teamed up with brands such as Keep Hush, Late Night Shopper and Reprezent Radio to offer opportunities ranging from creative funding to gig slots and industry panels.

PIRATE is a global network of 24 hour studios that offers creatives the chance to record, rehearse, mix, and play whenever they want, as well as providing a platform for local talent to develop their craft. Back in September, the company attempted a world record for the highest number of DJs to play back-to-back in a single set. 100% of the money raised was donated to KeyChanges, in order to fund weekly music activities for young mental health patients in hospital.

Each month, PIRATE launch a new set of opportunities which providing rolling support to DJs, producers and live acts. For their latest announcement, launched November 10, DJs are invited to apply for a live-streamed DJ set at the first Keep Hush x PIRATE event, taking place at Pirate Hackney. Three sets have been put aside for applicants, with a headline act TBC.

PIRATE has also teamed up with Late Night Shopper to offer DJs in their community an opportunity to perform at some of the UK’s best clubs. Each month, a panel will select three DJs to showcase their skills during a live-streamed event. Artists are invited to attend a free panel event at Pirate’s newest London studios in Tottenham. Guests will include Kiss FM and Worldwide FM resident Tash LC, Keep Hush founder Fred CC and NTS resident Raji Rags, who’ll be discussing the ins and outs of virtual and physical music scenes as well as online club culture.

As well as this, PIRATE is on the lookout for fresh music to play on their regular Reprezent Radio slot, with the best entries each month getting a spin on air.

Artists can apply for all these opportunities by visiting the PIRATE blog here.
