Inside your recording studios
The process of creation is different for everyone, yet the need for a quiet, productive space is universal. With self-service access, professional equipment provided free, and affordable day rates, our recording studios help you capture your creativity the moment it sparks.
Pop in for an hour, settle in for a day session, record, mix, edit — the space is yours for whatever purpose you need, and available 24/7 to work around your daily routine.
What is Pirate?
A worldwide network of DJ, production, rehearsal, podcast and dance studios, giving you round the clock access to create. Because we’re open 24/7, we've made the experience entirely self-service using our unique entry code system — but if you ever need a hand, we're here. The fastest way to get support is via Live Chat.
As well as providing space to create in our global network of studios, joining the Pirate community means receiving help to take your creative practice to the next level.
Our A&R team works with industry partners to release new grants, mentorship programs, gig slots, exclusive freebies, and much more.
Some high profile previous opportunities include: festival slots at Boomtown, Wild Paths, and Kendall Calling; free studio time for a year; radio plays on Reprezent and 88,4 FM Berlin; UK gig slots with Gotobeat, Late Night Shopper, Keep Hush, and Scruff of the Neck.
