One of the many reasons to learn the craft of DJing at Point Blank is that you get the chance to have your mixes played exclusively on Pioneer DJ Radio alongside the likes of top artists like Slam, Sante and Eats Everything. We get a real kick out of showcasing our students’ talent and seeing it reach an audience of thousands each week. What’s more, because PDJR also features shows from some of the biggest and best labels out there including Cadenza, Get Physical and Defected, you never know who might be listening.
Point Blank’s brand new DJ Studio in our second London facility is sponsored by Pioneer DJ and features all of the latest top-of-the-range kit – including CDJ2000nxs, DJM2000nxs and the DDJ-SX controller
New York born and bred, Wendy ‘EscoDisco’ Escobar is a respected house DJ, songwriter, lyricist and music supervisor. Having started her career in the enviable position of Music and Talent intern at MTV, she gradually gravitated towards the more rarefied world of underground house, with bookings across London, Miami and Detroit – including high profile gigs for Art Basel and Movement. In autumn 2015, she crossed to the pond to study Music Composition at Point Blank London as a means to augment her DJing, songwriting and production skills. “I learned a plethora techniques to extend, develop, and manipulate my innovative musical ideas and turn them into compositions,” she says of her time studying with instructor Phil Ramocon. “I was also able to find my strength within songwriting – lyrics – and collaborate with students and staff at Point Blank. This has given me the confidence to work with artists outside of Point Blank since, and begin work on my own demo.”
In this mix, recorded for Point Blank on Pioneer DJ Radio, she demonstrates why she’s in demand as an underground house selector, effortlessly moving between big room bangers and more heads-down, early morning fare.
