Chew is a platform to watch the best DJs perform live, anywhere in the world.
Chew is a streaming service that links fans with livestreams of DJ sets taking place anywhere throughout the world. It also offers a platform for DJs to more easily stream and share their live sets. The service is accessible to DJs of all types, as users can stream an event using anything from a smartphone to a broadcast-level professional camera. It’s an easy way to instantly gain access to a global audience,whether you’re DJing at a club or event or just wanting to showcase your skills from your living room. It’s a cool community because all of the livestreamed events are DJ sets, so it’s a great platform for fans and DJs alike to connect and watch each other.
The fact that there’s no separation between being a viewer and streaming your own event makes Chew an active, supportive musical community. The service is also entirely free for both DJs and viewers. It works on both browsers and mobile devices. Although there’s currently no option to require payment to view streams, the company plans on adding that feature soon. That would take an element away from the current collaborative nature of the site, but it would provide exciting opportunities to work with well-known DJs or high-profile events. For now, the site offers a great opportunity to catch some cool sets by DJs from around the globe. Also, many of the sets are archived, so you can watch them on an on-demand basis at a later date.
