Why do EDM ghost producers ghost produce instead of releasing music under their own name?

There are many facets to answer this question. One of them is that not all producers who compose music are looking for fame. For some people, they like to limit themselves within the walls of their studio. Not all ghost producers want fame. Not every skilled person desire to have the spotlight.
Another reason could be that, for selling a music one not just requires talent but a brand is also an essential factor. The number of DJs that can command 5-figure booking fees, across any electronic music genre are probably in the like low hundreds. Producing music is one thing but to sell it a brand is to be built. Brands are build through marketing, advertising, networking, distribution etc.
Ghost Producers have a fixed amount of fee they charge for their music. It gives them a stable earning which they use to make more music. If a producer is really good at it and is flexible with shifting genres then its potentially sustainable.
If a producer can knock out a track a week at $500 a pop, that’s $25K a year of padding on top of a day job. To earn that as a DJ, one will have to be able to command a $1K+ booking fee every other week. This incurs a lot of traveling Even with flights and most expenses covered by promoters, touring is an expensive and draining lifestyle (never at home, eating at restaurants, taking cabs, etc.) Extremely few people can pull off such hectic lifestyle and also produce their music solo.

It’s all about preference. There be instances that people with same talent in similar field might have difference mindsets and goals. All of this just comes down to one conclusion that the ultimate motive is, to give good music to the audience.
