UK hip hop don Roots Manuva's seminal cut "Witness" was released via Big Dada back in 2001 to a rapturous response. Now, Point Blank's Lead Course Developer and all round Ableton master, Ski Oakenfull, takes to the track, deconstructing its elements and providing great insight into the sound design and construction of the track. Point Blank has offered up the Ableton session from the deconstruction, which can be downloaded here.

You can watch the full deconstruction below, with more information on Point Blank and its Ableton Live Diploma courses—which includes sound design, composition, mastering, and music business—here.
