I am sure that there is no person in the world listening to electronic music who does not know his music. Robbert van de Corput – Hardwell began his adventure with music at the age of 14.

After numerous successes of his songs, he created his own music label called Revealed Recordings.

In one interview, Robbert once admitted that he had the pleasure of creating a song for someone. This song was a hit in the top ten beatport. However, it is not entirely clear who he created it for. Currently, the musician does not run concert tours, so you can only assume that he took up ghost producing.

But this is already left to the assessment of our readers.

Techno Ghost Producers

Last years techno is becoming more popular in the world of electronic music. But with the raising of this kind of music, fanbase of artists is growing too. Like we all know people always like to ask questions so techno didn’t avoid this. Are artists like in other kinds of electronic music using ghost producers ? How many of them ? Is ghost production popular in techno ? On those and other questions i will try to answer in this article.

What is techno ?

First of all i will write few words about techno. This genre of electronic music which has been found in Detroit during the mid-1980. The very first techno track was „I Feel Love” by Donna Summer. However the right place and time when it was create is Detroit in the mid-1980. Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson are considered as inventors of techno. Because of typically electronic character and big popularity in the early-1990 and the rise of many species of electronic dance music like eurodance, trance and dubstep it’s often confused with the other kinds of electronic music.


„I Feel Love” by Donna Summer

It’s a kind of music with regular 4/4 beat. Classic techno has tempo around 120-140 beats per minute. This music is characterised by the use of synthetic sounds. There a lot of subspecies and everyone is different like for example: ambient, acid, hard, minimal or schranz. Tracks are usually completely instrumental and there aren’t too big vocal parts too. With time this music become more experimental.

Drumcode Ghost Producers

Which techno producer didn’t want to release a track on this label ? This techno label was founded by Adam Beyer. By the years it has grown to the great label. One of the best techno labels on beatport was recently in the heat of attention through one tweet.


Barker’s tweet about ghost production in Drumcode

Techno Ghost Producers
Few months ago artist called Barker published on his twitter that his „friend who ghost produces told me he does stuff for Drumcode. Which artist, I asked. Oh, all of em.. they take the tracks and assign them to someone….” Well, sounds intriguingly. We can’t rule out that some of djs which release tracks in Drumcode are using ghost production. Sometimes they could order tracks made from scratch. Djs are really overworked nowadays. Five gigs per week sometimes excludes possibility of music production. They could use some other producers to finish their stuff too. It’s not a secret that rarely happens that producer is also good in making melodies, sound desigin or mix and mastering. For those who are not good in one of these issues it’s very helpful to ask another music producer.


Adam Beyer

This one of the most popular techno djs was suspect of using ghost production. In the middle of 2018 he released in his own label Drumcode a track called „Your Mind” with dutch producer Bart Skils. It was a big release played by most techno djs, occupying top places in charts too.


„Your Mind” by Adam Beyer and Bart Skils

A lot of fans might thought that Bart produced whole track and Adam just put his name to help improve promotion of the track. The suppositions became more and more louder and Beyer couldn’t bear it. So he referred to this through twitter.


Adam Beyer’s tweet

We can see that Drumcode’s boss does not hide that Bart did a lot in this track. But also reveals that many of stems were made by him. How many and who did more in the project we don’t know. However he reminds that he produced more that 100 tracks through his career. Also puts a rhetorical question about his music production skills.

But the world of techno didn’t doubt in his master. One of iconic djs Chris Liebing reacted to Adam’s post quickly calling all those suspections as a nonsense. Also Seth Troxler and Joseph Capriati put in a good word for Beyer. It must have meant a lot to him.


Darude’s answer on Drumcode boss tweet
