Recently, PB students got the chance to witness the drum ‘n’ bass legend doing his thing in the studio. Point Blank make sure their students have access to the best facilities with the latest music production equipment, expert instructors who’ve worked with everyone from Bob Marley to Kanye West and incredible industry opportunities and discounts, and they also make sure their students get real-life experience in the music and recording industry.
That’s why they teamed up with Goldie – d’n’b legend and friend of PB – to give their students a chance to help record drums for an upcoming project. The result was an inspiring and insightful session with Goldie recording three drummers simultaneously at Assault and Battery studios in North-West London.
As usual there were some choice moments from Goldie, remarking: “When you think about Point Blank now, 20 years ago a school like that would never exist – and that is a really strong thing.” Course instructor Anthony Chapman echoed Goldie’s sentiments: “Back then, the technology wouldn’t have been capable of doing what we’re doing today. Now I can export all the stems tonight and the production team can get to work straight away.”
If you want to learn recording techniques like the ones in this video and get the chance to work with huge electronic music artists and producers, Point Blank’s Music Production and Sound Engineering Master Diploma teaches you everything you need to know, including a special Sound Engineering module.

House legend Erick Morillo refuses to make a bad tune. “The Restorer” is the latest release on Subliminal Records, and this one will take you to church. Haunting synths take background to sampled preachings, creating kind of an eerie vibe. A huge bassline cuts in and reminds you that this is a massive house track. Think about Ibiza while you blast this one, and go grab it on Beatport.

Last week we covered a huge remix of ASTR from Figgy. Today, we’ve got an equally massive edition from LEFTI. Driving disco chords perfectly describe this one. Really tough sound from this one, and it stands out nicely from the rest of the remix support. The balance of the harmony of the overlying melody and rough bass create a really cool vibe, and you can grab it for free. Download it now and look out for more from LEFTI.
Dear lord it is entire too hot for house music right now… at least in LA. On the real, its nice to pump the breaks on the dancefloor jams for a minute and take a minute to smell the flowers, and the indie rock and other stuff. This 20-track playlist united Colby J. + brohlson and it does not disappoint. From Leon Bridges to Thundercat, theres a whole lot of fun packed into this bad boy, but no house music. BC its too damn hot!!!
