Paramdeep Sokhy, music producer and student at Northbrook College, has recently been awarded for his outstanding production work for an artist. After establishing a career in the music industry, Param decided to return to education and pursue a BA Degree in Music Production at Northbrook College.
Param’s journey in the music industry started when he was signed to EMI and flew to the US to make beats for artists such as Rodney Jerkin and P Diddy. During his time in the US, he had the opportunity to work with Whitney Houston and wrote an unreleased rap for Will Smith. However, after EMI went bust, Param returned to the UK and started working with then-unknown artists such as Skepta.
As well as his success as a producer and artist, Param found himself enjoying teaching and decided to pursue a degree in music production. At Northbrook College, Param has been catching up on the academic and theoretical side of music production, even though he is already very advanced in the practical aspect.
Recently, Param’s hard work and dedication paid off when he received an award for his production work for an artist. Additionally, his album with PakMan went number one in the Hip Hop and R&B charts on 8 July 2022, marking Param’s first number one hit.
Music Production lecturer, Mike Pailthorpe, had this to say about Param: “As a student, Param is a delight, because he brings both prior knowledge of both music production and the business, together with huge enthusiasm for what we do. He is constantly telling his fellow students “Yes! This is the stuff you need to know!” – it’s great having him on the course.”
Although Northbrook College has had previous number one hits, Param’s success may be the first for a current student. Param also teaches music production on the Trinity Laban Degree Programme when he is not in the studio or at Northbrook College.
Northbrook College celebrates Param’s success and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours in the music industry and education.
