Virtual club DJ

Broadcast directly into our Virtual Club on Sansar™, from our new VIRTUAL CLUB DJ test studio at PIRATE.COM Greenwich. This product is in beta.

PIRATE.COM’s brand new Virtual Club DJ Studio broadcasts you live into our virtual reality nightclub, built in the Sansar™ platform, where you can perform to friends, family and others joining you in the club. All you need to do is turn up to the studio and play - we’ll do the rest.

This first-of-its-kind studio has been fitted with state-of-the-art audiovisual live streaming technology. The audio is captured directly from the DJ mixer, synchronised with the video captured by our built-in HD camera and is streamed straight into the club. It’s plugged in and rolling 24/7 - as soon as you step inside the room you are live.

No extra set up or sign-in required and we provide a simple set of instructions for anyone who wants to join you in the club.


Get your friends together and enjoy a club-standard experience

On the rise in the Windy City

Chicago, it's a pleasure to be here. West Fulton's newest artist hub for casual and professional creatives is nearly ready to open — we can't wait for you to get started in the studios.

For now, let's take a look at some of our favorite local hangouts:

  • Smartbar is a legendary venue revered by the international dance music community. If you're making one stop-off on a night out, make sure you pay a visit.
  • For record collecting enthusiasts, Gramaphone stocks a wide selection of Chi-town classics and contemporary house/techno.
  • Evanston Space's outdoor events and livestreams play host to acoustic solo artists and group acts across the spectrum of indie, jazz, and soul.
  • There's no shortage of option in the world of theatre and the performing arts here, though nothing matches the Auditorium Theatre for scale and spectacle.
