A few weeks ago we were delighted to welcome back a very talented PB alumnus for a live performance. One of the most tenacious students we’ve ever had, NINJA has gone from strength to strength since finishing her course with us in 2010. Back then she studied how to DJ with us on the Complete DJ course, and she has since gone on to create the intricate hybrid live-set you see here, using live instrumentation to build hypnotic webs of rhythm and melody. It was great to have her back, and we think you’ll agree her live set is something to behold.
When we last featured NINJA on this website, we told you how she had taken our class on her gap year and dived straight into playing out to her peers when she went to university. Her hustle took her to Ibiza where she’s played at places like Destino and Privilege regularly since. We also told you she was in the middle of developing a live show and getting her head around music production… Well, here we are a couple of years later witnessing the fruits of her labour, a truly unique set that trades deep tech-house against microtonal melody, resulting in a masterful exercise in texture, tension and release. NINJA’s also says she’s planning on releasing her first album, titled ‘The Thirteenth Code’, before this summer. As ever, we’re inclined to believe she’ll make it happen.
If you’d like to try your hand at performing live, our in-house live don Saytek teaches a module on live performance as part of our music production degree programmes. Check out Saytek’s recent live demo on the new Roland TR-8S for a demonstration of what he can do. Find out about the range of DJ courses, of which NINJA is an alumnus, too.
