DJ_mag_panels.pngWe tracked him down for a few words about his time at dBs Music before he speaks on the DJ mag panel at the end of the month. “Studying at dBs Music Cornwall was a great experience," explained Olly, "I really enjoyed my time there. I've found the skills that I learned and developed during the course really helpful in my career. The setup at dBs Music is great for nurturing creativity, I found spending time with like minded students really inspiring. I developed some great ideas with the support of the lecturers that I have successfully put to practice in the real world."

“I would say that studying music on an academic level is a fantastic asset for anyone that wants to have a career in music. Enrolling in a course that encourages you to push your ideas and music to the highest level whilst working to strict deadlines is invaluable industry experience.”

On the 22nd August, you can catch Olly speaking on the DJ Mag panel alongside fellow label managers and music industry heavyweights, Tom Mullett (Hospital Records/ Med School), Matt Tolfrey (Do Not Sleep, Leftroom Records and more)
