When DJ/producer Dennis Horstmann aka Special D. and his friend Oliver West started to produce electronic music with around 128 BPM under their DJ-duo name Point Blank back in 2009, nobody ever heard of a new genre called “EDM”.
Basically not knowing people later would call their music exactly this, the two Hamburg based DJs produced their first official single “Walking on air” back in 2010. The track was then released on the iconic label “Ministry Of Sound” in 2011 and remained a “secret weapon” for artists like Tiësto.
Eleven years later, Swedish artist Quickdrop delivers a sick harder uptempo remix of POINT BLVNK’s (Now a solo-artist) “Walking on air”, twisted the vibe and lead-melody to a whole different track. The remix is now available via POINT BLVNK’s very own imprint PYRO Records, distributed by Kontor New Media.
Based out of Hamburg, the 6’7“ guy launched PYRO Records in 2012 and toured as a DJ for more than 15 years, playing festivals such as Parookaville in Germany.
Driven by his passion for music and culture, he’s done everything from hosting Sony Music’s Clubsounds TV and being a playlist-curator of some of the biggest festivals after releasing tracks and remixes earlier with/for legends such as Azzido Da Bass and Joachim Garraud.
POINT BLVNK’s music, released on labels such as Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire, the EDX label Sirup, Deorro’s Panda Funk, 2-Dutch and others and has been heard in DJ-sets of world renown artists such as David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Alan Walker, Don Diablo, Tiësto, Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand, Blasterjaxx, Lucas & Steve, VINAI, Danny Avila, Timmy Trumpet, Quintino, Tomorrowland Resident Yves V and Firebeatz just to name a few.
