Set against the stunning backdrop of the Dalt Villa in Ibiza, and all its surrounding natural beauty, we followed the winner of this year’s Point Blank x Pioneer DJ Accelerator programme on his first major trip with us to play at the world-renowned IMS Ibiza, an electronic music summit like no other. Ambian is studying his degree with us currently, on the BA (Hons) in Music Production and Sound Engineering, quality assured by Middlesex University, and the Accelerator programme is a result of a collaboration between two of electronic music’s biggest institutions in Point Blank and Pioneer DJ. Check the video below and watch Ambian as he embarks on his biggest year yet.
With DJs and performers at the very top of their game flying in from all over the world, between 23 and 25 May there was nowhere else we’d rather be in the world than on the famous white isle. As well as our own masterclass featuring Andrea Oliva, we were represented by Ambian, supporting none other than Flash Mob and Seth Troxler with his favoured brand of afro house and melodic techno.
As he points out, IMS is a fantastic place to meet likeminded music people and network – the first of many opportunities to advance his career as much as possible over the course of the year. His first time at IMS, he even got the chance to drop a tune of his into his set at the Hard Rock, which you can hear in the video. With his goal of becoming a world-renowned DJ and producer firmly in sight, this is certainly a big first step.
Feeling inspired? As mentioned Ambian studies his degree with us at Point Blank, and this is just one of many opportunities open to our students. We’ve recently added two new degree courses, also quality assured by Middlesex University, launching next academic year. They are the BA (Hons) in Music Production and DJ Practice and the BA (Hons) in Music Industry Management, so you can tailor your studies to your exact preference.
