Ghost producers is an anonymous artist who produces an entire track for any record label or a DJ. They also co-produced tracks in collaboration with other artists. This service charges a flat fee or gets paid in royalties for the tracks they produce for their clients or artists. These services take either the full or partial responsibility of producing tracks for artists.
This allows artists to manage their concerts, live performances, and other commitments. There are legal agreements done between the artists and the ghost producers which obliges the original producers to remain anonymous.
Sometime back, the famous producer Mat Zo went on a 24-hour rant on twitter about DJs paying for headline festivals and how these big artists use this kind of service who compose music for them which is released under their name.
Speaking against Tiesto, he accused him of using ghost productions. He tweeted, “@tiesto once said to me “those trance guys are a bunch of old losers’ maybe cus they stuck with their passion and didn’t go chasing pussy.”
