Who we are

MCR Live is a content network showcasing the best DJs, musicians and creatives across social channels through video, events, podcasts, blog content & 24/7 DAB radio. Hot on the nose of the latest trends, we focus on creating high quality content using a curated approach by creating programming with cultural influencers to an engaged audience, rather than repetitive playlists & outdated advertising methods.

A large part of MCR Live revolves around our growing roster of music influencers with worldwide audiences. We have regular video and on demand content online alongside live radio shows with a wide-range of big names including Everything Everything, Bondax, Snarky Puppy, Findlay, Dutch Uncles, Ben Pearce and Dave Haslam to name but a few. With our ears firmly on the best upcoming sounds we organise guest mixes and takeovers from big upcoming names across a variety of genres including the likes of Joe Goddard, DJ Boring, Greg Wilson, DJ Paulette, The Amazons, Colin Curtis, The Lemon Twigs, Prosumer & Josh Butler every month that you will not find anywhere else. With video trends on the up every month, we’ve also created exclusive watchable content with Orbital, Binkbeats, Tame Impala &  Zak Abel and have worked with brands including Brooklyn Brewery, WeWork, Mission Mars, Shindigger, Sonar, Dot To Dot, Skiddle, Oi Polloi, Bluedot Festival, WeAreCow & Off The Record.

Music, Culture and Radio. These three words define what we do.

We do not want to be defined by one genre of music, style or artist. We are a platform open to all creatives to create, curate and produce – as long as what we’re making together is high-quality and engaging for our audience and wider. We are moving away from the rigid radio stations and media projects of the past & embracing a new world where ‘brand’ isn’t defined by a single platform or genre – it is fluid and interchangeable with time and we understand that nobody has singular interests. MCR Live’s ambition is to become one of the ‘go to’ platforms for engaging content in the music and cultural world, whether it be a radio show, an Instagram post, a video/ blog series or an even an event.

In just one year we’ve grown massively, fostering a large following & online listenership all over the world. With a small team, we’re punching well above our weight, attracting some of the most interesting and dynamic talent and exciting brands to produce unparalleled cultural content.
