At Point Blank, we pride ourselves on the content we provide to our audience and the opportunities we’re able to offer to our students. That’s why, for this Throwback Tutorial post, we’re journeying back to January 2018 to revisit the time that the one and only Todd Edwards stopped by Point Blank Los Angeles to deliver an artist insights masterclass. Todd Edwards is a man that needs very little introduction, but in case you need a refresher, he’s a producer and DJ, and one of the most prominent figures in house & garage since the mid-nineties. An early champion of speed garage with a trademark cut-up style of sampling, he came to be known as a pioneer of UK garage, all the way from New Jersey.
Guest masterclasses like this one are just some of the things we offer to Point Blank students. If you’d like to gain access to exclusive LA functions, panels, parties, networking events, masterclasses and more why not enrol on a Point Blank course? We’ve just added eight new courses to our PBLA roster including our flagship Music Production & Sound Design Master Diploma course. Enrollment is open now, so check out the full list here!
In this video, we get a peak of a Todd Edwards masterclass at Point Blank Los Angeles, in which he shares invaluable advice and choice anecdotes with his students. Watch the video to see and hear glimpses of his DAW projects, managerial insights and stories about the less glamorous side of old-school sampling techniques. Plus, hear about his love for Irish folk music and DIY Björk impersonations.
If you’d like to get a taste for what life is like at Point Blank Los Angeles, on June 20 we are hosting a PBLA Open House with Sweatson Klank, which is free for all to attend. This month’s Open House will focus on LA instructor Sweatson Klank’s new album and feature insights on his production techniques, getting the record signed, and insights into the creative process behind the album.
