Top 3 Artist Masterclasses of 2016 (Flux Pavilion, Shadow Child, Kidnap Kid)

Here at Point Blank we have hosted some of the world’s biggest and best producers, giving exclusive masterclasses and insights into how they make their music. As difficult as it was selecting, we have put together a list of our top three from the past year. Stay up to date on future masterclasses by subscribing to our YouTube channel.

Flux Pavilion & Matthew Koma – Emotional: Track Masterclass

Since his debut, Flux Pavilion has produced for the likes of The Prodigy, Major Lazer and Example, as well as having his own releases featured on the Radio 1 A-List and being sampled by Jay Z & Kanye West. We asked him to talk us through his creative process and break down his 2015 track ‘Emotional’, featuring vocalist Matthew Koma.

Shadow Child ‘Hotter Than Hell’ Remixes: Track Masterclass in Logic Pro

We visited UK dance music heavyweight Shadow Child at his impressive London studio for a masterclass in remixing. Watch him break down two new remixes featuring the breakthrough star of 2016 – Dua Lipa – in the video above.

Kidnap Kid – ‘Brokenhearted’: Reason Track Masterclass

Kidnap Kid burst onto the electronic music scene with his first ever release, ‘Vehl’, being selected as iTunes ‘Best Electronic Song’ in 2012. We caught up with him at our London studios ahead of the release of his latest track ‘Brokenhearted‘, out now on his own label Birds That Fly. He talked about his decision to self-release and gave us an insight into his creative workflow and approach to production. Check it out in the video above.
