DJ Ravine is back with his weekly update on his progress with us here at Point Blank London as he studies Intro to Music Production, as well as courses in Music Composition and Sound Engineering. We’re six weeks in now and after last week’s episode, which was heavy on the sound engineering, this week he shifts his focus back to composition. If you’re just joining us for this series, check out our YouTube playlist and get yourself caught up. Plus, get the lowdown on all of our London courses at ourLondon school’s webpage.
It’s been another busy week for Ravine, as he swung by our latest open day to catch Ski Oakenfull give one of his famous deconstructions live. The track in question was Calvin Harris’ ‘Slide’ ft. Frank Ocean and Migos, which you can watch here. After a catch up with Ski, Ravine takes us into his composition class where we join Linton Bennet once again as he talks us through the intricacies of hooks and riffs. Finally, Ravine puts this newfound knowledge to use with one of his own tracks he’s been working on, and even gives a short demo of Ableton’s Simpler in doing so.
As always, thanks to DJ Ravine for taking the time to put this together. Feeling inspired? Take a look at our full list of production courses in London and Online.
