Techno | Point Blank Shares About History Of Techno Music

Posted by on November 17, 2016

Techno fans have a special treat today. The electronic music school has released a video discussing not only the history of techno music, but also production tips discussing, in detail, elements of education for the Ableton user. James Wiltshire, who has been featured talking about historical and production points with Point Blank before, uses his charming UK voice and impressive intellect to deliver a balance of history and knowledge.

Dope facts you probably didn’t know if you got into dance music this decade: Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson began to create what is now known as early Detroit Techno. Early tech-heads were influenced by the book Third Wave – I won’t give away any more interesting facts – but the video is worth the watch.

News | G4G Initiative Is Emazing Lights’ Best Move Yet

Posted by on December 20, 2015

There are few times where a story goes beyond the music / product / festival, and it is those times I am happy to share most about.

Emazing Lights, known around the word for their foundation of the gloving movement, their Shark Tank appearance, and sister clothing company iHeartRaves, has got the internet buzzing about one fan’s life that’s been changed forever from gloving. His name is Matthew.

Matthew deals with cerebral palsy and a paraplegic disability. He is only 17. Like any American with a disability at school, students and life in general isn’t always kind to people in Matthew position; but it was one action from a single individual that changed his life.

After seeing Matthew casually practicing arm and finger whips and dance motions, his brother suggested that he get into gloving.

One glove set and a handful of practice sessions later, Matthew was deep into a new hobby that not only brought a new form joy and happiness into his life, but also improved cognitive abilities once hindered by his disorders.

Shocked, Matthew’s parents contacted Emazing Lights to tell them how there son’s finger dexterity and arm mobility improved. This connection between EL and Matthews family inspired a series of actions which will now have an impact that reaches far beyond the two groups.

After meeting the CEO and learning about the new, but unanticipated medical benefits of Gloving, Emazing Lights has started a charity initiative entitled “Glove 4 Glove” which boast a massive, but noble undertaking: for every glove set sold, Emazing Lights will donate one glove set to someone in need.

If that’s not an inspiring story, I don’t know what is. Emazing Lights has set a standard that other EDM accessory companies should strive for.

The Glove 4 Glove initiative is well underway. To learn about G4G or how Matthew’s life has changed, follow the links below.

With an “EDM” landscape full of similar sound acts, Galantis is a welcome breathe of fresh air. Despite their branded over-night success, they’re anything but, crafting hits well before “EDM” was a thing and you were still in high school dating cheerleaders. Last night, Galantis premiered their “Runaway (U & I) single on #BetaBPM (to much fanfare) set to release October 5th. The offering serves as the first single to their forthcoming album with no release date at the moment. Release date or not, Galantis is the next big thing in the electronic dance music space.
