DJ Suketu is one of India’s top DJs and also runs The Music Inc (TMI), one of Mumbai’s finest musical institutions. Over the last few weeks he has been studying our Complete Electronic Music Production online course, demonstrating that even those with his kind of experience can take plenty from learning with Point Blank. He’s been keeping us up to date with his progress thus far with his weekly vlog series. Watch below as he tells us how he found week four. Come back next week for the next instalment.
DJ Suketu tells us what he thought of week four of Electronic Music Production
After the first three weeks, students studying Complete Music Production have a good understanding of the basic elements of a dance track, namely the drums and bass. In week four, we start to introduce some more expansive harmonic elements in stabs, riffs and chords. The compositions we work with are starting to get more complex by that stage, so we also try and include as much foundational music theory as possible too. So students can expect to hear about things such as key signatures, scales and intervals. Our selected video from this week’s classes is a deconstruction of Armand Van Buuren’s ‘Waiting For The Night’, in which all of these elements are drawn together.

DJ Suketu and The Music Inc have been working closely with Point Blank in recent months to create a unique educational pathway for their students looking to study with us in London. Indian students looking for academic accreditation in the UK can benefit from saving up to £3,000 on our BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree, in which we shape a bespoke range of modules for their programme. We have also developed two courses for TMI students looking to study with us in London based on a short-term visa, in the form of our Advanced Music Production & Sound Design Diploma and Advanced Music Production & Sound Design Certificate.
