In May 2019 we were invited to IMS Ibiza to check out the annual summit’s festivities and explore the variety of panels, events and parties on offer. Whilst there we sat down with the one and only UK club-king, Jax Jones, to discuss exactly how he writes and produces hit tracks from start to finish. If you’re looking to step inside the world of songwriting, DJing and Music Production working with industry experts on a day-to-day basis Point Blank’s courses can make this a reality.
Jax Jones has become a household name in the UK thanks to his winning streak of club tracks such as ‘You Don’t Know Me’, featuring Raye, ‘Instruction’, with Demi Lovato and Stefflon Don and his feature on Duke Dumont’s massive no. 1 single ‘I Got U’. He’s best known for his shuffling house tracks, melodic basslines and star-studded collaborations, which, if you’ve been to a club or listened to the radio in the last 5 years have undoubtedly heard. Now, Jax Jones has pulled back the curtain on how he writes these addictive, award-winning songs. We’re back at IMS this September for another special artist masterclass with Marco Faraone. Join us at the action-packed IMS Malta 2019 by grabbing tickets to the event available here.
During the masterclass, the Producer and DJ breaks down his huge Ivor Novello-nominated track, ‘Breathe’ ft. Ina Wroldsen, which has amassed over 3.6 million sales and over 600 million streams worldwide. He goes into depth about how, as he puts it, you can “secure the bag” and make sure your latest song is an unforgettable earworm. He details how to create a track of this magnitude breaking down the songwriting and production elements before sharing tips on collaborating with other artists, paying attention to details which can help the listener relate emotionally to your music, his favourite plugins and techniques and how the idea for your song is the most important part of the process.
