Point Blank on Pioneer DJ Radio: MANTi

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.

DJPoint 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

Mana Nabati aka MANTi was born and raised in Iran but the pursuit of her education would see her relocate to the US, to the prestigious UC Berkeley. Emerging with an engineering degree, she couldn’t shake the feeling that music was her true passion. In July this year, she decided to pursue her calling by enrolling on a course at Point Blank Los Angeles. It was a prudent move: she’s since released her very first EP Inception on our in-house label Point Blank Music and she’s currently working on a monthly series called SYNCHRONY where she showcases her flex for deep, textural techno and tech house. You can get a taste of which in her mix below and, if you like what you hear, dig a little deeper over on MANTi’s Soundcloud.

Speaking to MANTi, she highlights the role Point Blank has played in her career progression, and in her growth as an artist: “My experience at Point Blank has been a truly rewarding one. Being a part of a community of people who value music so much and getting to share your musical ideas with them is one of the best things about studying at Point Blank.

“I have learned so much, but the most important thing I have learned is to turn my thoughts into musical ideas. We all have so many ideas in our head but transforming them into reality is the tough part. Point Blank has helped me tremendously in capturing my musical emotions and turning them into tracks. I value the connections I have made here so much and I look forward to continuing my musical journey at Point Blank.”
