Point Blank Students Collaborate with Soul Legends (Kathy Sledge, Ultra Naté & More)

This year we were joined by a number of singing soul legends to collaborate with Point Blank’s line of talented emerging music producers. This opportunity arose through our recently signed Point Blank Recordings label head and lead A&R, Kwame Kwaten, who has deep ties to the music industry. He’s had a #1 in the dance chart with his band D Influence, signed to Atlantic Records, been shortlisted for a Mercury Prize, supported the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince, James Brown and managed the successful Laura Mvula and Shola Ama – so it’s no surprise these opportunities are in abundance with Kwame and Point Blank. If you want essential advice and your own 1-2-1 sessions with our industry professional lecturers, you can sign up for a Point Blank course and study online.

This PB x Legends project saw our students jump in the studio with the likes of Kathy Sledge, the founding member and lead singer of Sister Sledge whose tracks, ‘Take Me Back to Love Again’ and ‘We Are Family’ hit number one in the USA, Kym Mazelle, who is widely regarded as a pioneer of the house music genre, Elisabeth Troy who laid down the vox for MJ Cole’s gold-selling ‘Sincere’ and has since collaborated with Clean Bandit and more, and lastly, Ultra Naté the singer behind the global club classic, ‘Free’, and number one tracks, ‘Automatic’ and ‘Give it All You Got’.

Stay tuned for some of these extra special Point Blank collaborations coming soon via our in-house imprint, Point Blank Recordings.

Our student opportunities, industry connections and state-of-the-art studios are what make Point Blank the number one electronic music school in the UK. In addition to the use of our facilities, exclusive masterclasses, events, discounts and more, PB students are encouraged to book 1-2-1 sessions with Kwame himself to explore career development, gain track feedback from the lead A&R and discuss possible connections within the industry. Study with Point Blank at both our global locations or online.
