So it seemed about time that we actually talked about music again and preferably something new.
Came across Sivu the other day and was really impressed. In fact it’s the best thing we’ve heard for quite some time. Great songwriting delivered with a beautiful voice. Sweet but raw, fragile but strong, above all authentic.
What’s really interesting for dBs Music students is he’s been happy to have various versions of his songs on display which really gives a good insight into the art of arrangement and remix.

As part of the process of making the best choice for your own needs you’ve all been sending us some great questions. We’d love to do our best to answer some of the more common ones in this article. So here goes….
Our brand new Berlin centre will have it’s official opening in September 2013. Unfortunately for you as a student this means that you don’t have all of the information that we would ideally like you to have before making your choice.
As a result there are questions you may have which we are unable to answer completely. We’ve tried to answer these questions below as best we can at this stage of development of our new Berlin centre.

Anything that allows us to really get intuitively in touch with the sound has got to be a good thing for electronic musicans and producers.
Rory Cellan-Jones went along to the company’s east London premises to try out the technology, with the company’s founder, Roland Lamb.
Whenever potential students submit applications to study with us, we ask them to describe a track that really inspires them, and we get some fantastic answers.
Inspiration is often hard to find, especially when you run into that dreaded ‘creative block’ and it can last for days! So, to help you out, we’ve created a Spotify playlist of all the tracks that inspire our students (don’t worry, its all anonymous), the result is an eclectic range of musical styles! Have a listen, and if you’d like to suggest a track to be added, leave us a comment!
