PBLA students are in for a real treat for our next guest masterclass, as we invite the legend that is Jesse Rose to share his secrets on how to turn your hobby for DJing or bedroom production into a fully-fledged and successful career in the music industry. Given the house and garage producer/dj’s own long, fruitful career in which he’s worked with pretty much everyone, played everywhere, and spent time writing an as-yet-published book on the very subject of this class, there really is no-one with more authority on the matter. Please note, this masterclass is only open to students and graduates of Point Blank! If you’d like to get access to regular guest masterclasses like this, check out our full list of classes in Los Angeles.
With a career spanning a quarter-century, Jessie Rose is in more of a position to talk about longevity in dance music than most. His path and trajectory follow what has become the benchmark by which most people judge the ‘proper’ way to climb the ladder. There is, of course, no such thing, but there are steps you can take as your reputation grows, incrementally or rapidly, which are always a good idea. Trust us when we say Jesse knows them all.
He began by playing parties in Bristol, UK before his productions caught the ear of one Derrick Carter. Jesse wasted no time capitalising on the co-sign from one of the biggest figures in house music and started his own Front Room imprint. Made To Play and Play It Down both followed, and in 2015 he launched his fourth label A-SIDED. His release catalogue is over 100 deep, and he has topped bills at the biggest clubs in every corner of the globe. This is not one to miss.
At Point Blank, these are the kinds of careers we seek to build, and with our mix-and-match courses, you can build the skills that are right for your vision with three courses at a time. Maybe a classic trio of Music Business with Intro to Music Production and Complete DJ? Whatever you choose, we are currently offering free software worth $1,350 with all 3-month courses at PBLA, so there’s never been a better time to enrol. If you have any questions contact a course advisor on 323 282 7660.
