Is EDM dead or is EDM life?
This is the question I asked myself when I first thought of this post.
But I didn't want to just dig through sales charts and concert attendance.
I wanted to know what people around the world were actually searching for.
So to find the answer, I turned to Google. Here's what I found out.
When I first started my production career, I would obsess over what equipment my favorite producers were using.
I reckoned that if I could get my hands on the same equipment as them, maybe I too could sound like Moby or Tiesto.
(Little did I know then that the only way to sound like my favorite producers was good 'ol hard work and talent.)
That early obsession, however, turned into a fascination with producers and the equipment they use. I've been tracking what headphones, keyboards, production software, synths, and monitors my favorite producers use.
That's exactly what I'm going to share in this post.
