The applications were closed earlier this week for entries into our latest DJ mix competition – we wanted to find Point Blank students who could show enough skills to take to the stage at Work Bar for DJ Mag at Work presents Point Blank – and you certainly delivered. We’ve been overwhelmed with the response and have thoroughly enjoyed listening to everyone’s mixes, and now it’s time to announce the winners! We’re also delighted to reveal that the headliner on the night will be Saytek, who will be bringing his mesmeric live show and streaming his set to the world. If you didn’t win, or perhaps didn’t feel the confidence to enter this time, there’s no need to worry – the standard of applications was very high and no matter what level you’re at, you can always check out our DJ courses to help take you to the next level.
There are limited free tickets so make sure you RSVP here if you haven’t already. Here’s a little bit more about each of our artists on the night.
UK artist Saytek (aka Joseph Keevill) is one of the electronic music scene’s most in-demand live acts. From multiple shows in Ibiza, at The Terrace of Space (RIP), The Zoo Project and regular shows at fabric London, to being fully embraced by Berlin’s underground scene performing regularly at clubs including Tresor, Golden Gate, Salon – Zur wilder Renate, Chalet, Sisyphos, Kosmonaut, Ipse and more. Saytek has a relentless tour schedule with gigs at some of the best parties and festivals all over Europe. At the time of writing, he’s preparing for doubleheader in Berlin and Frankfurt this weekend (18 & 19 May). We can’t wait to see him bring his wild live show to Work Bar. He also teaches Music Production with us here at Point Blank London, find out more about those courses here.
As the winner of the Point Blank x Pioneer DJ Accelerator Programme, we invite Ambian to join us on the bill for his second show with us in the programme after returning from IMS Ibiza. Between his production and his series of nights, Sensus, he’s steadily been building his repertoire and honing his skills over the past couple of years and is set to launch to the next level. For a more in-depth look, check out our recent interview feature.
Hailing from North London, Hollie is quickly making her mark in the scene. Her style is predominately techno-focused, being percussive and forward thinking, with an uncompromising edge. She is also the founder of the London based event and artist collective, ‘atone’ hosting regular parties at Rolling Stock in Shoreditch.
Only 21 years old and a little over a year on since his first release, Paradoks has earned the support from Lane 8, Solee, Betoko, Eelke Kleijn, Paco Osuna, Darin Epsilon and more. With releases on Parquet recordings, Paradoks harvests introspective melodies from his self-taught piano playing, combining it with tougher percussive elements. He’s had a couple of number 1 releases on the Beatport progressive house chart and his latest release, the “Eternal EP”, hit the top 6 of all releases on the site. One to watch!
