As we ease into the new year, bleary-eyed from the near-hibernation of the festive period, we thought it a good time for a reminder of our favourite content from last year’s final month. This is no exercise in buying time until the cobwebs are shaken though – before our annual retrospective we produced some of our favourite content of the year in December, including as always the educational, the interesting and the informative. Check out our Monthly Roundup December 2017 below. As always, our content is designed to help students and curious readers alike to gain insight and expertise in all facets of the music industry. To take this to the next level, head to our pages for schools in London, LA, Ibiza, Mumbai and Online.

Sweatson Klank exudes that cool, easy-going demeanour that LA people seem to be born with. Don’t let that fool you though, the producer is an incredibly hard-working professional, and has been with Point Blank LA since it opened its doors. Here he speaks with us from his favourite LA digging spot, High Fidelity, about what teaching and mentoring means to him.
Every now and again we try and catch up with one of our extremely talented team of employees to give you a taste of what everyone is getting up to when they’re not helping to make the school the industry leader it is. This time we caught up with our senior studio assistant Ricky Vianello, also one half of Tapefeed, to find out about his productions and parties.
PB Instructor Saytek is joined by DJ Ravine for a very basic guide to making a track in Ableton. Beginners can follow this – all you need is a free trial version of the software and some free sample packs – and begin their own journey in making music.
