Former Student Gareth Wyn Releases Radio 1 Essesntial Mix

Gareth Wyn is among the hottest remixers around right now, and coincidentally; he's also a former Point Blank Music Production and Sound Engineer student.

He’s remixed two Beyonce singles ‘Broken Hearted Girl’ and ‘Video Phone’ for Sony, as well as remixing Leona Lewis’ single for Simon Cowell’s Syco label. Add to that his huge remix of BT’s ‘Flaming June’ (signed to Tiesto’s Blackhole label for a 2010 release) and previous remixes for The Gossip, Junkie XL and Duffy and we are talking about a serious new talent.

To add to all of this, Gareth was recently invited to release an Essential Mix which was broadcast on BBC Radio 1. The mix included some true bangers including; Afrojack v Tocadisco - Tequila Sunrise, Chris Schweizer - Vitality (Sergio Maldonado Remix), and Boys Don't Dance - Monsetta and can be heard below:

We're all proud of what Gareth has gone on to achieve so far, and know that there is a lot more to come from this exciting new remixer. The man himself also had some words to share about his experience here at Point Blank, completing both Production and Engineering diplomas. He said of the Music Production Diploma that;

"This was the course that brought everything together for me and gave me the kick start I needed".
