One of the best things about running a music school in Los Angeles is that, since so many incredible artists call the city their home, there is a huge wealth of talent and experience available to call on for inspiration. Like, say, Todd Edwards, who we had give a guest masterclass last year to the universal enjoyment of everyone who came. We’re delighted to announce that we have another very special masterclass on the way, this time with Machinedrum. The event is on July 24, is totally free and is available to Point Blank students and graduates only. To attend just head over to Eventbrite and RSVP.
Machinedrum has been around for a while now. Even in preparing this preview we had a double-take at the fact his first release under the moniker came 17 years ago and that he began making music before then even, in the previous century. Now You Know, the first Machinedrum release, was the real launchpad for a career that has since taken on many shapes. His solo records have consistently tested the boundaries of sound-design and texture, while records in collaboration with the likes of Theophilus London or the late DJ Rashad have taken on lives of their own. His band with Braille, Sepalcure, had the enviable and unique position as the kings of bass music over in the states (despite being released by Glasgow’s LuckyMe) and the duo has inspired countless young producers in the US to experiment with tougher sounds and looser drum tracks.
Watch the video above for a taster of what went down at the last guest masterclass we hosted with Todd Edwards. You can expect more of the same hard-earned expertise this time from one of the most interesting and experimental artists of the last two decades.
