We have teamed up with Point Blank graduate Anthony Touma together with his label, Universal Music Mena, to create a very special remix competition for students, graduates and our wider online community. We’ll be looking for the very best remix submissions for Anthony’s new single, ‘Walk Away’, out now on Universal Music. the winner will have their music judged by the A&R team at Universal Music Mena with the potential of an official release. They’ll also receive a free Point Blank ‘Complete’ course, plus copies of Komplete 11 and Ableton Suite! All you need to do to get started is download the stems here – check out the track below, and read on for full details of how to enter.
Anthony Touma took our Singing & Songwriting Certificate last year and after completing his courses, he returned to his home country of Lebanon, teaming up with local producers. This led to his signing by Universal Music Mena, and subsequently the release of his first single, ‘Walk Away’ in April 2017. Having received a positive response for the single, Anthony and Universal Music Mena are now looking to make a commercial dance remix of the track for clubs, extending this challenge to the Point Blank community.
The track should be something commercial that would play in clubs and get people dancing. The label would prefer to stay away from techno, house, deep house etc. however a Trap-style remix could be an option. This is the perfect chance for you to have your music heard by Universal Music Mena and potentially have your remix published, launching it on a global stage. Not only that, but the winner of the competition will receive a free Point Blank ‘Complete’ online course, plus copies of both Komplete 11 and Ableton Suite.
