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
Tristan Debroise was only 18 when he left his hometown of Angers in France to immerse himself in London’s storied dance music underground. It was to prove a life altering decision; inspired by what he heard, Tristan armed himself with a pair of Technics and set about turning his love of music into a career. He’s since found himself on the same line-ups with some of his heroes Arnaud Le Texier, Saytek, Voigtmann and Alex Celler. Always looking to refine and improve, he enrolled on the Music Production & Sound Engineering Diploma at Point Blank earlier this year, and he’s even extended his stay until December, “because i do really enjoy the working atmosphere and meeting people from different musical Horizon”.
Indeed, it’s Point Blank’s unique creative environment, and the collaborative potential it fosters, that Tristan singles out when discussing his time here. “Everyone is sharing their own experiences and knowledge. You can meet so many people from different parts of world and it teaches you a lot about music and helps you set up future projects.” However, he is also quick to highlight the impact the Music Production modules have had on his sound. “I was explained, in depth, some techniques that I used in the past but never really understood properly.” Check out his hour long mix for Point Blank’s Pioneer DJ Radio show to get a feel for his off-beam, deep techno style. You can find more from Tristan at his Soundcloud.
