How to make self-service music
Pirate Studios, an operator of self-service recording studios in the UK, Germany and the US, has just raised $20m. The UK-based start-up says it will use the fresh cash to open more studios for artists in those markets, and possibly beyond.
Pirate already boasts 350 studios in more then 20 locations, with prices starting at £4 per hour. More than 50,000 musicians have used the facilities, according to the company.
