Who is a Ghost Producer ?
Ghost producers are completely anonymous professionals, who are hired by EDM Artists/DJ’s to create their original tracks/remixes/Mashup’s/bootlegs , who eventually buy the rights of that creator’s work to release it as an original. There are air-tight contracts between the Artists/DJ’s and the ghost producers, which prevent identification of the anonymous artists. Next time, don’t feel cheated/lied if you found out the new song you love was actually created by a completely unknown, unnamed person. In today’s modern dilemma of Electronic Dance Music, most of the Artist/DJ’s hire Ghost producers for their record labels/original tracks.
Here are some of the tweets of famous Artists/DJ’s about Ghost Production.
“I work together with other producers all the time and I am very open about it. What others do is their decision.”
“I think it’s acceptable to get help. Ultimately, it is up to the artists to decide at what point they are no longer being honest with their listeners.”
“I produce all my tracks in my own studio but I don’t see anything wrong with it. If working with a partner helps you to truly make the best tracks you can, then you can only go with your gut to produce the best music at that time.”
Ummet Ozcan :
“It is inevitable, but it doesn’t really bother me.”
“If you’re a good businessman, a good entertainer, up to date with the latest trends in music and most of all a good DJ, then I don’t have a problem with it, although it would not work for me.”
