What is ghost producing?
The definition of ghost producing.
What exactly is ghost producing? Although the internet provides many definitions, here at House of Tracks we maintain a clear definition of ghost producing. Ghost producing is: producing dance tracks for others. The ghost producer does or does not waive their publishing rights to the track.
Ghost productions are bought by other artists, producers, publicity agencies, movie producers, website builders, video creators, etcetera.
Ghost producers are musical experts who deliver outstanding tracks to artists and other producers without being known by the mayor public. Or by anyone, sometimes. And there are more artists using ghost producers then you can think of!
The truth is, there are really few artists who produce tracks entirely on their own. There is often a number of people working on a track. And that is understandable, considering how much work goes into producing a hit song!
Types of ghost producing
There is more than one type of ghost producer. A ghost producer can be a co-producer or produce an entire track. Producers can upload and sell entire tracks either royalty free or as a co-production. They earn a fixed price per track (plus potential royalties).
Ghost producing vs. ghost writing
The definition of a ghost producer is similar to the definition of a ghost writer: a person who writes one or numerous speeches, books, articles, etc., for another person who is named as or presumed to be the author.
Ghost writing is actually very common amongst celebrities. Think of the numerous biographies or cookbooks celebrities publish. They are often written by someone else. And no one cares, most of the time. Because we don’t expect a great singer or a reality star to also be a great writer. But when it comes to dance music, the public is shocked when they find out their favorite artist didn’t produce his music on his own. A major double standard, when you think about it.
The benefits of ghost producing
Ghost producing can be seen as a consequence of an increasingly demanding and ever-changing music industry. DJ’s are under a lot of pressure and feel the need to produce track after track in order to maintain relevant and popular. At the same time, being on tour takes up a lot of time and energy.
Ease the pressure
Using a ghost producer can help ease the pressure. It is actually very common for music artists to get help with (part of) the music production process.
So why not give ghost producing a chance?
Focus on what you love
Working with a ghost producer allows all types of producers to do what they love.
Some producers like the fame and everything that comes with it. By using a ghost producer, they can spend more time interacting with their fans and performing on stage. They can leave the actual producing up to ghost producers.
Besides the ‘time factor’, there also is the ‘creative factor’. No one can be creative on demand, all the time. Sometimes the creative juices just don’t flow. It happens to the best of us. Ghost produced music can bridge a gap between creative intervals.
For those without the need of having to be in the spotlights: working as a ghost producer enables them to focus completely on creating music, without having to travel, deal with media, and working late hours. Some of us just like better behind the scenes. And who can blame them?
Win win win
So, it’s safe to say that both ghost producers and artists benefit from ghost producing. But what about the audience? Some say ghost producing is not fair or that a track is worth less if it isn’t produced by the artist itself.
But in fact, ghost producing enables artists to keep releasing tracks. Even if their schedule doesn’t allow studio time and producing new tracks, then still he or she can release new tracks! Needless to say, fans love new tracks. Would you rather lister to new tracks of your favorite artist, or not listen to new tracks because they don’t have time to produce? Exactly.
That is why we say: everybody wins!

The taboo on ghost producing
Needless to say, ghost producing is no taboo to us. We are all in. But it still seems to be a bit of a thing within the dance scene: the fact that world famous DJ’s use ghost produced tracks. That they buy entire tracks from ghost producers, or even that they collaborate with ghost producers. Rumors about ghost produced tracks are numerous. Meanwhile, ghost producing must not be named. But why? Let’s explore.
Accepted forms of ghost producing
As we stated before, a ghost producer is in fact the same as a ghost writer: someone who writes books, speeches, articles, etcetera for someone else, and isn’t named as the author. Apply this to music production and you have the definition of ghost production.
Ghost writing: books, speeches and other texts
Ghost writing is actually very common amongst politicians, celebrities, and even writers.
Did you think that Obama wrote his own speeches? Or that the Kardashians wrote their own novel? Or that everybody writes their own bio text on LinkedIn? It might not be a surprise; the answer is no.
Ghost producing of pop music
When it comes to music genres like pop music, ghost writing is also very common and accepted. There are so many artists who do not compose their own music and do not write their own lyrics. They just do what they do best: perform! When it comes to pop music, hardly anyone cares about this. Fans love artists, no matter who is responsible for their music.
Ghost producing of dance music: a big taboo?
Just by mentioning ghost producing and dance music in one sentence, you can expect the wrath of the dance gods upon you. And not to mention every hater and internet troll with an opinion on dance music.
Some might say that artists who use ghost producers are frauds. And that it is unfair to their fans. The same fans want the artists to release new tracks, perform, update their Instagram daily and respond to their messages. A lot of work for just one person. That is why ghost producing is such a great thing for some artists. They can meet the demands of their fans and still release new tracks! As we’ve said before: it’s a win win.
Others say artists who use ghost producers are talentless. That is just nonsense. A producer cannot become a big and famous artist without having a lot of talent. They might lack the talent to produce music, but they might be the best in mastering tracks, picking great samples, or polishing sounds. There are actually only a few producers who are the very best at every aspect of producing music. So, artists who use ghost producers are in fact very talented. They made it to the top, haven’t they?
Unfair to ghost producers?
There seems to be the idea that ghost producers are exploited and are payed an unfair wage for their efforts. This is not true. Ghost producers at House of Tracks are payed a fixed amount per track. They themselves decide how much money they want to charge for a track. When the track is sold, they receive their money. Simple as that!
Others think it is unfair that ghost producers are not mentioned when the track released. But, in fact, that was always part of the deal and can even be a benefit for the ghost producer. They might not want to be in the spotlights. They might just want to produce music and make money doing it. Why else would they choose to be a ghost producer?
Break the taboo!
Hopefully by now everybody can see that ghost producing isn’t to be condemned, it is to be celebrated! If it weren’t for ghost producers, a lot of artists wouldn’t make it in the ever-changing and always demanding dance scene. And we wouldn’t have so much great music to dance to.
