Pirate Studios have announced that they are working with Keep Hush, Late Night Shopper, Reprezent Radio and more, to offer opportunities to burgeoning creatives.
The global network of 24-hour studios has provided opportunities including funding, mentorship, radio and a variety of in-person and live-streamed gigs.
Pirate’s goal is to support over 100,000 artists and will be an ongoing scheme throughout 2022 to help the new generation of DJs, producers, and live acts.
One of its partners, Late Night Shopper is providing DJs within their community with the chance to showcase their skills at some of the UK’s best clubs. Each month, a panel will choose three DJs to perform during the live-streamed event.
Artists applying are also invited to attend Pirate Studios’ brand-new London studios in Tottenham. This will host a variety of special guests including, Kiss FM, worldwide DJ Tash LC, founder of Keep Hush Fred CC and NTS host Raji Rags. Together they will be offering their insights on the ins and outs of virtual and physical music scenes and online club culture.

As part of their partnership with Keep Hush, DJs can apply to live-stream a set for the first Keep Hush X Pirate event taking place at Pirate Hackney. A headline act is not yet known but three sets have been filled by applicants already.
And if producing tracks is your thing, Pirate’s regular Reprezent Radio show is also looking for new music to add to their slot and the best entries each month will get a spin.
The initiative launched on their website on November 10 with plenty opportunities still available.
