Recorded at IMS College Malta, watch industry insiders share their perspectives in this Point Blank-hosted panel.
There are many aspects of the music industry to consider. Even if you’ve mastered production, composition and mixing, getting yourself out there, heard on national radio and booked at gigs is a whole other art form. Point Blank’s courses aim to give you all the ammo you need to not only get to grips with music-making, but to understand how the wider music industry works. One of the ways they do this is by giving students the chance to speak to those at the very top of their game – and when Point Blank teamed up with International Music Summit for their first IMS College, that’s exactly what they did.
No one can doubt Pete Tong’s legacy as one of the most influential figures in dance music. His role as a broadcaster, in breaking new records, signing the latest talent, developing big name artists and DJing in clubs all over the world makes him the ideal figure to advise the next generation. Joined on stage by producer duo Eli & Fur, Laura Newton from CAA and Listen Up!’s Lucy Allen, this panel covers all angles of the industry, from the early mistakes the panelists made to promotion and artist development. Watch the video and make sure you subscribe to Point Blank’s YouTube channel for more live events.
