A ghost producer is a person who produces or co-produces tracks for other artists, DJs or record labels in return for a flat fee. There’s a mutual agreement between both the parties i.e the ghost producer and the artist that the track will be released under the name of the artist and the original producer will remain anonymous. This is a systematic business chain among the variants of the music industry which is flourishing immensely. People want to opt for ghost production as their career but there are certain questions which often rise to them. For example, how to become a ghost producer, how much can a ghost producer earn in a month, is it a good option when considered career-wise.
Well, it surely is a great option. The live example of Marteen Vorwerk, the most paid and most famous EDM ghost producer makes it seem possible. One can easily learn ghost production with the help of services from a lot of tutorial websites online and videos on YouTube.
