We are Brap.FM
We’re an Internet Radio Station. We like good electronic music. Just like you.
We don’t like Trap.
The majority of our shows are scheduled during the week from 6PM to 12AM UK time. The shows can be found 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 broadcast live via the website, via iTunes, and our archives are podcasted making them available for all discerning listeners across the planet.
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 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’re a community of like minded individuals with a universal love of music. Primarily Brap is all about electronic music. We cover House, Techno, DNB, Breaks, Dubstep and even some Funk and Soul but 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 high quality programming.
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 £5 to play and these subscriptions go towards paying for the infrastructure. This includes web servers, stream servers, site hosting costs and domain renewal costs. And it’s a fiver. Hardly bank breaking.
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 then 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 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 7 years in November 2013 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 anything labelled as ‘The Random Rotation’. Chances are 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.
