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
Thread, aka Tibor Czerna, is one of the rising stars of Hungary’s techno and tech house scenes. A DJ since 2005 and producer since 2009, a year in Australia saw him join Hydrofunk Records where he had the chance clock in studio time with artists like Dave Atkins (Resin Dogs), Spikey Tee (Morcheeba) and Ian Peres (Wolfmother). In 2011, he was crowned winner of the Master Tempo DJ Competition and is now a regular at some of Hungary’s biggest electronic music festivals, including Sziget, Balaton Sound and Volt. To complement his rising DJ profile, he decided to turn some attention to his production skills – which ultimately led him to the UK and Point Blank, where he is currently studying the Music Production & DJ Diploma.
“I came here to extend my knowledge and to write better music but during the courses we learn many different things,” he says of his time at PB. “There’s a lot of practical time at the classes so it gave me a lot of confidence for my production. I’d recommend it to everyone who not just wants to know music but get a hands-on experience and have fun with the other students from all over the world.” The mix, an hour of driving, atmospheric tech house, features two unreleased tracks from Thread.
