Chew from Proof of concept to Thriving Community

Launching with a proof of concepts to a active community broadcasting more content that any one person could watch in a day, every day in just 12 months!

Super Engaged Community

The core concept for Chew from the beginning has been to connect the worlds DJs from around the world. And it’s exciting to see that we were right. DJs from over 130 countries have broadcast to viewers in over 190 countries. More exciting still the average broadcast length is over 2 hours with our longest community shows topping 24 hours! Since we launched v1 of chat shows have on average over 30 messages each, with some reaching over 1000 on every stream. Checkout the top channels and shows from 2015 a little further down.

Top Level Partnerships

Chew’s strength is our community of amateurs, but that doesn’t mean bigger names can’t get into the mix. In the last 12 months we’ve featured content from Barcelona rooftops at Sonar festival with DJ Mag, 24 hour of techno from Data Transmission and Wunderground, label take overs with LabelWorx, launched our radio product with Hoxton FM and partied with Ram Records at ADEmake sure you get involved for 2016.
