It’s easy when you’re engrossed in the dance music world to think that producers getting all the credit is the norm. However, in the pop, country, and rock worlds, this is often not the case. So when some woman tweeted a few days ago that “Music Producers should not get the same credit as the artist,” well… everyone came together against a common enemy.


It’s always clear when a tweet is controversial because it has just about as many replies as it does favorites. At the moment, this tweet has 2400 replies vs 2700 favorites. Confirmed: controversial.

Many of dance music’s top producers either replied directly to the original offending tweet, or quote tweeted it with their own take. Either way, it was the hot button topic over the holidays.
