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: A ghost producer is a professional who is hired to produce tracks for other artists or producers. The ghost producer may or may not be credited for their work on the final track.
Ghost productions are bought by artists, producers, publicity agencies, movie producers, website builders, video creators, etc. Artists may use the track for various purposes, and the ghost producer still plays a crucial role even if they remain in anonymity.
Ghost producers are musical experts who help create and deliver outstanding tracks to artists and producers without necessarily being known by the general public. And there are more artists using ghost producers than you may think!
The truth is, there are really few artists who produce tracks entirely on their own. There are often multiple people involved in producing a hit song! This highlights the important role of a ghost producer in today's music scene.

Types of ghost producing
There is more than one type of ghost producer. A ghost producer can produce an entire track to sell or act as a co-producer, engaging in both traditional production and innovative methods. Producers can upload and sell top tracks either royalty-free or as a co-production where they still receive a portion of the royalties. This can be a one-time deal or an ongoing partnership, with the potential to negotiate terms that benefit both parties. As a co-producer, they earn a fixed price per track plus potential royalties, and might also work with sample packs to enhance their productions.
Ghost Producer Insights: Exploring Types and Earning Potential
The definition of a ghost producer, akin to the definition of a ghostwriter, is a professional, often with a deep knowledge of music theory and various daw (digital audio workstation) software, who creates content that is credited to another person. This can range from future house and future bass to melodic techno, catering to the world’s best DJs and artists.
Just like a ghostwriter, a ghost producer in the realm of dance music is someone who meticulously crafts tracks, potentially becoming up-and-coming hits or even favorite songs of many, without receiving direct credit. The artist, possibly an established name like David Guetta, releases the music as their own, while the ghost producer remains unlike traditional producers, uncredited.
Ghostwriting is prevalent in various industries, such as when celebrities pen their biographies, but the public often harbors mixed feelings, reacting negatively when discovering an artist didn't fully produce their own dance music tracks. This paradox highlights a stark double standard in the public's perception of ghost producing versus ghostwriting, raising questions and perhaps necessitating FAQs to address common misconceptions.
The benefits of ghost producing
Ghost producing, a vital role played by a dedicated production team, can be seen as a consequence of an increasingly demanding and ever-changing music industry. DJs are under a lot of pressure and feel the need to release songs and produce track after track to maintain relevance and popularity. They strive to provide the best ideas for tracks online, ensuring their music resonates with fans worldwide. At the same time, the demanding schedule of being on tour consumes a significant amount of time and energy.
By utilizing ghost producing, these DJs and songwriters can share their creative workload, helping them to stay on top of their game and continue to release high-quality tracks on our platform. This also allows for more opportunities to generate streams on Spotify, further extending their reach and influence in the music industry.
Ease the Pressure: Ghost Production and the Music Industry
Using a ghost producer can help ease the pressure. It is actually very common for music artists, especially DJs, to get help with (part of) the music production process, and being able to negotiate terms that suit both parties.
So why not give ghost producing a chance? After all, many of your previous clients have benefitted from this, even if their contributions remain uncredited. This approach needs no introduction in the music industry and has been a game changer for many.
Ghost Production Perks: Balancing Fame and Creativity Behind the Scenes
Working with a ghost producer allows all types of producers, including DJs, to do what they love.
Some producers like 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, embracing the new arrivals in the music scene.
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, sometimes in WAV or instrumental version, 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? Especially when it might lead to opportunities to get signed to a major record label.
Ghost Producing: A Win-Win for Artists and Fans Alike
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 worthless if it isn’t produced by the artist itself.
But in fact, ghost producing enables artists, including DJs, 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 ghostwriter: 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.
Ghostwriting: books, speeches, and other texts
Ghostwriting 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, ghostwriting 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 paid an unfair wage for their efforts. This is not true. Ghost producers at House of Tracks are paid 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.
