Progresif announced today that they will be holding their second set of DJ auditions this Sunday at the Progresif Headquarters to find Brunei’s next great Radio Talent.
The second round of auditions has evolved to focus on not only finding new radio voices but also inviting participants to bring their show ideas for a live broadcast or for the On-Demand programming lineup.
Since Progresif reinvented radio in the Sultanate last November with the launch of Brunei’s first Mobile App based radio station, listenership and content has continued to grow with Progresif reporting more than 15,000 downloads and over 200,000 listening sessions per month.
The Progresif Radio programming content has also grown to include a large library of On Demand content.
The audition event this Sunday will be streamed live on air which means that listeners can tune into Progresif Radio to hear the aspiring DJs try out their vocal skills and experience the excitement of sitting in the booth behind the microphone while being interviewed by Brunei’s top DJs.
Devin Edwards, Chief Marketing Officer of Progresif, said that the second audition presents an opportunity to bring fresh radio talent and help existing and aspiring content producers to get access to Progresif Radio as a platform to distribute and promote their content.
“We built Progresif Radio as part of our support for Arts & Cultural development in Brunei and for content producers to have a better opportunity to promote and generate revenue from their talent.”
“Since the launch, we have recorded more than 20 bands and musicians, and produced two studio albums with our third in process. We have also developed shows to promote comedy, film reviews, educational programmes, and much more.”
“We had an amazing response to our first radio audition last year with a huge turnout, so we can’t wait to hear from more great voice talent and great ideas for content in this year’s audition event,” he said.
To take part, individuals need to be at least 18 years old, be a Yellow or Red IC holder and can speak English fluently. Malay-speaking DJs are welcome, but they must also be able to converse well in English.
Registration opens at 8 AM so participants are advised to come early to secure their audition slots before it runs out.
The Progresif Radio application is available currently for download through the Apple Store and Google Play.
