We are Brap.FM
We’re an Internet Radio Station. We’re a community of DJs, producers, promoters and music lovers who have all come together in one place with one mission: to bring good music to anyone who wants to listen.
We have live shows from 6PM to 12AM 7 days a week playing anything from Techno to DNB, Dubstep to House. At any other time we have our Random Rotation playing the previous months archives on a well, random rotation.
We also have four years worth of archives for you to download, absolutely free. Be sure to check out the live show if you come across something you like. Not only that but we’re on iTunes, our archives are podcasted and available for you to subscribe to for free too!
We’re always on the lookout for new DJs to join our roster. If you’ve got a couple of hours to spare every two weeks and you reckon you could promote your show to a wide range of listeners then we want to hear from you. Get a mix together, write up a bio and get in touch with The Management and we’ll do the rest.
Why join Brap.FM?
We are a community of like minded individuals with a universal love of music. Primarily Brap is all about electronic music. House, Techno, DNB, Breaks, Dubstep and even some Funk and Soul. We have an open music policy and while this might not get us the most amount of listeners, it does mean we are able to step outside pigeon holes and offer you a broader range of music to listen to. There’s nothing better than tuning in to an Internet radio station and discovering new music. This is what drives us and pushes us to continually deliver good music.
We get together on a regular basis and with pockets of Brap communities all over the country from Manchester, London, Bournemouth, Bristol, Brighton and even Wales you are never too far from Brap related fun and shenanigans.
Brap DJs are involved in music in some shape or form. Be that a resident DJ, a producer, a label owner or a promoter and we’ve had Brap DJs play at most of the UKs biggest festivals; Glastonbury, Glade, Waveform and Aeon. We are always proud to see Brap DJs appear on flyers for some of the biggest events up and down the country. We could even say that being a part of Brap gives you some weight when getting gigs.
So what do you get?
Brap is a subscription based service. That is, you pay us a small amount per month to play and these subscriptions go towards paying for the infrastructure: web servers, stream servers, site hosting costs and domain renewal costs. Anything left over in the kitty at the end of the month rolls over to the next month until we have enough cash to put on a night. Then the costs turn to venue hire, promotion and the booking of headline DJs if necessary. These nights are where Brap.FM DJs get to play. So if you’re looking for gigs then this is another reason to get involved.
You also have access to an automated iTunes podcast service which means after you upload your show to the archives your show will then be added to the overall Brap.FM podcast and your very own personal iTunes podcast. With these combined we have a vast number of downloads per month. Not only that but you get unlimited hosting for your archives and your mixes.
We are also now allowing DJs to submit pre-records. If you have time to put together a 2 hour show but can’t commit to a live show then we want to hear from you. You get all the benefits of being a Brap DJ with the added flexibility of recording your shows before hand and uploading to our FTP. We’ll then schedule your show and you can sit back and relax.
Brap is a platform and you are free to use that platform to promote yourself and your show however you see fit. You can even add news to the Brap.FM main page (as long as it’s music and Brap related, of course).
We’ve been going for 6 years in November 2012 and we plan to be around for a good few years yet.
If this sounds like something you want to be a part of then the first thing you should do is check out the schedule and look for a free slot. If it’s labelled as ‘The Random Rotation’ then we’re looking for someone to fill that slot. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with links to mixes (Soundcloud, Mixcloud etc) and enclose a short bio.
If we like the cut of your jib, we’ll be in touch.
