Point Blank x DJ Mag at Work Bar: Saytek, Hollie, Ambian + Paradoks

As part of our regular collaboration with DJ Mag, Point Blank took over Work Bar for a showcase of the freshest talent from the school, as well as a blistering live set from Saytek: jet-setting performer and Point Blank expert instructor. As well as turning it out for those in attendance, the whole thing was live-streamed via DJ Mag and our own channels, so you could get down from home. Watch this wrap-up video for a flavour of the night, or watch each set in its entirety further down the page. Want access to gigging opportunities like this and hone your skills at the same time? Check out our latest degree programme, the BA (Hons) in Music Production and DJ Practice, quality assured by Middlesex University.

Saytek LIVE

Point Blank instructor and expert techno knob-twiddler Saytek headlined for us on the night, bringing his intergalactic live-setup for a marauding set of on-the-fly bangers in house, techno and acid.

Hollie

Closing out the night was Hollie, driving through a barrage of oddball UK techno. Having been honing her skills at her party Atone for a while now, it’s great to see her skills hitting new heights.

Ambian

Also in attendance was Sensus co-founder and PB x Pioneer DJ Accelerator Programme winner Ambian. Part one sees him moving masterfully through some warm-up textures, teasing out some tougher sounds for Paradoks to run with on taking over. When he returned, the sounds took a darker turn, building up nicely for the Saytek’s oncoming assault.

Paradoks

Point Blank student Paradoks is one of the brightest talents currently studying at the school, for his early set, his tech-house rollers delivered a fresh, sharp angle juxtaposed with some murky depth.

As mentioned, student opportunities like these are commonplace at Point Blank, and with any of our DJ Courses you could learn to move the dancefloor like any of these artists. If playing live sounds like your thing, we offer a module in live electronic music as part of the aforementioned degree programme as well as the BA (Hons) in Music Production and Sound Engineering, also quality assured by Middlesex University.
