Earlier this month, Point Blank played host to DJmag’s VIP Room at their annual Top 100 DJs party. The event was hosted at the legendary Ministry of Sound, and we were totally blown away by the turn out for the event, which this year had the potential to be overshadowed by the Top 100′s awards party debut at the Amsterdam Dance Event the previous week.
As we rolled up to the venue, we were faced with an inexhaustibly long line of red-cheeked, and winter wind-swept ravers, waiting to pile in, warm up and party with the biggest DJ magazine on the planet. Once inside, it was straight up to the Point Blank VIP Room to say a rather over-enthusiastic ‘Good Evening’ to the Eristoff Vodka Lady-Wolves and sample some of their wares at the bar.
With our cockles well and truly warmed and our thirst healthily quenched, we rolled up our socks and took to the dance floor to check out the sets from PB competition winners, Axel Haube and Tee Circus. They belted out blistering sets that put everyone in the right mood for what went on to be a huge night. The headline DJs in our room Midland and Paul Woolford were next to step up, absolutely smashing it and making it hard to tear ourselves away and investigate what was going on elsewhere.
Other DJs involved in the event were up-and-coming DJ Marc Vedo and 80s icon/sometime public servant/re-invented big room house DJ Boy George. After these guys hit the booth, we managed to drag them away from the party, and have a more intimate chat with them about DJing with USBs, cultivating your own sound as a DJ and crossing the border between commercial stardom and authentic cool. You can watch our interviews in partnership with our friends over at Music Radar below:

Thanks to DJ Mag and to all the DJs that came and hang out with us to have a chat. We’re looking forward to next years party already!
