Does Techno Female Artist Charlotte De Witte Use Ghost Producers?
Famed Techno DJ and Producer Charlotte De Witte has clearly made her mark in the EDM Industry as not only one of the top Techno DJs, but one of the top Female DJs. The young Techno Producer from Belgium began her career in 2010 and just recently in the last few years has been blowing up on social media and wowing the crowds live on stage. Charlotte De Witte’s tracks are undoubtedly well made and produced with a high level of expertise. One would ask however, how does a DJ gain such popularity so fast and maintain quality studio time? With the high demands of a popular DJ, you know; touring, marketing, producing, etc, it is necessary to utilize a team to make it all happen. Depending on what the career choice or title a person goes by, DJ, DJ Producer, or Producer, will tell you right away if they value more the performance, the song production, or both. DJ normally tells you that the person on stage is playing someone else’s tracks maybe with their own minor twist to the song. A Producer is writing their own tracks and performing them. And lastly, a DJ Producer is the mix of both sides, playing tracks they have produced as well as other people’s. Whilst this may be arguable since many people either don’t know how to define the difference or have their own interpretation; the big question here is, what does Charlotte de Witte define herself as and does the high production value of her tracks tell us she uses Ghost Producers to make her music?
Charlotte De Witte has always faced adversity being a female techno producer. Rather than let it defeat her, she went an ulterior route which some may see as unorthodox, but hey it’s worked. From 2010 to 2015, the Techno Producer felt it necessary that in order to be taken seriously, she had to go by a male alias. She then was known as Raving George. She produced three EPs as Raving George before she dropped her alias and started using her real name. From that point on, she started churning out track after track at which time her popularity grew and she began climbing to the top.
This led to speculation on wondering if her amazing, clean, and high production valued tracks were the works of not only a ghost producer, but by a man. In 2018, she posted on her twitter in response to the topic; “Another asshole of my Facebook Page. Yes, i’m a woman so i can not possibly make my own tracks. I must be working with a ghostproducer. Are we seriously not getting sick of this yet? ” @CharlottedWitte. Is this a tell that she may be using ghost producers or is it that she is just simply that good?
Another asshole of my Facebook Page. Yes, i’m a woman so i can not possibly make my own tracks. I must be working with a ghostproducer. Are we seriously not getting sick of this yet? 🙄
