It’s now May, and as greenery returns along with freckles, pimms and suncream, the sun has also been shining on Point Blank Plus, with another cracking month under our belts. Without further ado here is our monthly round-up of the best from our blog in April 2018. If this inspires you at all, don’t forget to check out our full range of courses.
Constant Evolution: An Interview With Flowdan
For our latest feature-length interview, we met with the irrepressible Flowdan at the latest Native Session at London’s Barbican. Read the full interview to learn about his journey in production and mentoring young artists.
Track Deconstruction: Making a Bassline Banger w/ DJ Q
Bassline royalty and all-round don DJ Q dropped in on our London studios last month to talk us through his latest release. Predictably, it bangs, and the man himself shares a fountain of wisdom.
Student Success: April 2018
A bumper student success feature this month, with four in-depth interviews from an eclectic mix of DJs, composers and producers. Featuring Wendy Bevan (!K7, Unknown Pleasures), 1-800-Disco (Disco Express), Caspar Leopard (Caspar Leopard Records) and Sara Simms (Simmetry Sounds).
Point Blank Wins ‘Best Independent HE’ at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards
You may have heard that we won the award for the ‘Best Independent HE’ provider award at the 2018 edition of the WhatUni student choice awards, and this is because we’re incredibly proud of the achievement. Ultimately it was our students who voted for us, and they are what make the school, so we want to say a huge thank you to all of our students, as well as our expert instructors and tireless staff.
Track Deconstruction: TIEKS Breaks Down his Summer Smash ‘Sunshine’
Another high-quality deconstruction from TIEKS. Not only is the track the perfect slice of summer, but TIEKS talks through the track with the clarity of a veteran teacher. A must watch!
