The masterclass has now taken place. Watch the recorded broadcast below:
We are very excited to announce that the ‘Best Music Production and DJ College’, Point Blank, has officially teamed up with the world’s finest purveyor of DJ equipment, Pioneer, to equip our DJ classroom with all of their state-of-the-art technology. The brand new Pioneer DJ room at Point Blank is the perfect place to learn all the skills and techniques of professional DJing using the latest industry-standard equipment, so if you want to take your skills to the next level then check out our full range of DJ Courses.
In celebration of this partnership we’re going to be launching the classroom with a live DJ Masterclass from Ibiza Rocks resident, Rinse FM host and label boss Doorly. On Tuesday May 1st we’ll be giving you the first look at the new DJ studio with special guest Doorly sharing his expert knowledge and giving you an insight into how his sets smash the club with Pioneer’s latest equipment. We will be broadcasting the whole thing live online so you can watch from where ever you are in the world!
Having emerged from a small and local Yorkshire scene Doorly has had a rapid rise to fame. Not only has he recently undertaken a nine-month tour of the planet, but has played at almost every club in Ibiza (his summer home for the last 5 years), acts as tour DJ for R&B megastar Usher, and continues as resident, host and frontman with the illustrious Ibiza Rocks. It’s clear to see what separates Doorly from the crowd is his ability to play with a wide range of talent no matter the style of music.
Says Doorly of his setup (4xCDJs plus 2 samplers / EFX units and a mic)… “DJing should be about a live & visually exciting performance, not the back of a laptop! I bring as much equipment and broken down parts of tracks with me as possible to give me the ability to remix on the fly and involve as much scratching, looping and turntablism as possible”
Given Doorly’s dexterous talent behind the decks, it’s no wonder Pioneer have him road testing and giving design input on their kit months before it comes out. With such an in-depth knowledge his live Masterclass is not to be missed!
This exclusive DJ Masterclass will be broadcast live via our Livestream channel where you will also be able to submit questions for him to answer at the end, so make sure you join us ton Tuesday May 1st at 4pm BST (11am EDT, 8am PDT) .
