One of the many reasons Point Blank is so popular amongst aspiring DJs and Music Producers is the industry opportunities we offer to our students. Last month, we teamed up with the Cambridgeshire-based electronic music festival Hifields to offer one of our students the opportunity to play alongside some of the biggest names in UK dance music including Gorgon City, Eats Everything, Goldie, DJ Hype, Hazard, Steve Lawler, Michael Bibi, Artful Dodger and more. The five-year-old festival was born out of a love for music and founded by a group of friends wanting to dance together and leave all inhibitions at the gate. To be in for a chance to play amongst these renowned DJs and Producers, students at Point Blank were asked to submit a 30-minute mix to the Hifields Festival judging panel to select a winner. Fancy learning how to DJ like a pro and performing alongside big acts like this? Our DJ courses can help.
On 6th July, we made our way down to the festival, to show our support and catch up with the crew behind the event (one of whom is also a current student at Point Blank) and, of course, Dylan, the winning DJ. Follow on below to see Dom discuss how the festival came to fruition and Dylan about his selection.
The competition winner DYLØ, real name Dylan Glanz, a Music Production & Sound Engineering Diploma student who recently finished his studies with us at Point Blank. DYLØ’s winning mix delivers an eclectic fusion of ultra-smooth dancefloor jams packed with soulful, Latin-American influences. Tune in to the mix below.
Hifields was born out of a love for music, founded by a group of friends wanting to dance together and leave all inhibitions at the gate.
