Markus Kreukniet is an electronic dance music (EDM) producer and founder of Passion for EDM. He wants to share his EDM knowledge with the rest of the world.

My Experience

Sometime in the year 2012, my love for EDM reached a new height, and at that moment, I wanted to make music. I quickly concluded that I should learn at least a bit about making music by playing with a DAW (digital audio workstation) trying to make some music.

I started to watch “how-to” videos on YouTube. These videos taught me things quickly, but I did not understand why I was doing many of these things. Therefore, I started to learn EDM production more seriously.

I have learned a lot over the years, which I have done by learning from video courses, books, blogs, podcasts, and experience. This learning cost, in my opinion, much time and much money, but I think it was worth it.

We can endlessly learn about EDM, and I will probably keep doing it for the rest of my life.

Closing Words

I hope that the readers of my blog posts can learn something more about the EDM world. My goal is to make as many helpful posts as possible. The biggest problem that can sit in the way of this goal is my available time.

Probably most people have too little available time for their goals. However, maybe somewhere in the future, I will have some more available time for blogging.

At last, I wish you people the best of luck with learning about things in the EDM world,

Markus Kreukniet
