Thanks to everyone who came down to the Point Blank Label Night Launch! It was absolutely rammed in there & quality sets from Danny J Lewis, Carlotek, Danny Raper & Mr C!!
So now Point Blank returns for its monthly residency at 'The Disco Pub' AKA The Horse & Groom!!
PURE QUALITY HOUSE MUSIC
The launch night saw an opportunity for the student artist roster to hear their tracks getting played, on the H&G's meaty soundsystem. We saw tutors stomping their feet to student tracks, an interesting turn-around on the usual run of things!! This time around, we look forward to yet more label bombs set to go off on the Disco Pub's top floor!
Stepping up this time is former student Tomoki Tamura, of reputable Bristol label, Four:Twenty. Tomoki has played at clubs around the world from Fabric and Ministry of Sound in London, to 'Womb' in Tokyo, where his hugely successful club night, Holic has it’s own residency.
Tomoki is easily one of the most successful Japanese DJs in the world. Now residing in London, Tomoki has brought his brand of Deep House to the UK with his 2008 release – being charted number 1 on the Beatport Deep House chart.
Enjoying residencies at top clubs like 'The End' in London and frequently playing at superclubs around Europe from Madrid and Berlin to Turkey & Greece, Tomoki has stormed many a dancefloor. We eagerly anticipate a cracking set from yet another Point Blank success story!
Resident DJ and label co-ordinator, Carlotek steps up to provide us with the usual blend of quality House music. Carlotek is currently enjoying DJ support on his forthcoming Point Blank release ‘Uplifter’, from Scottish Techno Lords Slam, Nico De Ceglia (MOS), Paco Osuna (Minus), 2020 Vision’s MoodyManc and many more. Carlotek's trademark is a fusion of live Flamenco guitar and House music, what he calls Flamencotek. Last year his release Rosario, featured his father, international flamenco guitarist Juan Martin. The track enjoyed support and airplay from the crème de la crème, with Roger Sanchez, Dubfire, Chris Lake, Ministry of Sound Radio and The Galaxy Network all jumping on board to get behind it.
Carlotek is no stranger to the decks either, racking up DJ sets at top London venues such as 93 Feet East, Public Life & The Egg. He plays tracks with melody and avoids excessive repetition, a trap many a House DJ fall into. His sets present a dynamic between intensive bursts of 4/4 energy followed by contrasting laidback Deep House grooves.
