Electronic Music Production

In today's world, everyone wants to become a singer, rapper, or producer and the list goes on and on. But it has not always been something that has been achievable to the masses due to a restriction such as finding a label that will sign you, and once finding a label, getting a contract that allows the artist to have the creative control they desire. However for a while now, the music industry has started to evolve, making the once impossible mission to become a possible. This is connected to two key things, the uprising of the independent record label via the internet and the birth of electronic music production, it is now possible for everyone to become a musician, a producer or even a record label owner with next to no input capital.

The majority of "ravers" who perhaps dust off their glow sticks once a year for their festival experience may associate EDM with the superstar, 6 figures to play DJs, but they are not representive of the scene on the whole.
