The concept of ghost producer has been the top most vexed topic since decades. People in and out of the EDM industry have been skeptical about it all the while. But the face of it is altering positively. Not to forget, the most prevailing myth about ghost production is that its a swindle. But, its not.
A ghost producer is a person who composes or co-composes a track for an artist or DJ. He is paid in terms of money or royalties as per the convenience of the deal singed. It is mutually agreed by both the parties that the ghost producer remains anonymous.
There are high chances that your most loved track by your favorite artist might not even be their work. Ghost Producers work for artists who release tracks under their name without mentioning anything about external help, otherwise known as ghost production. But this is purely professional and circumstantial.
EDM is full of pomp show and commitments with deadlines. This general identity of the industry restricts them from dedicating required amount of time and creativity to their tracks. This is where a ghost producer comes into picture. Now, since the scenario is changing, the work of a ghost producer does get mentioned and noticed, eventually allowing them to have their fair share of credits and appreciation.
Believe it or nor, but the ultimate motive is to give out the best music possible. By the end of the day it’s all that matters, isn’t it?
