Frequently Asked Questions
What is a ghost production or ghost producer?
It’s really quite simple. A ghost producer writes music with a view to sell it onto a third party. The music produced is the ghost production. And you are the third party. You can buy the rights to the music, along with all of the files, and release it as your own. It’s like having a book ghost-written, but with music.
Who buys ghost produced music?
Many people. DJs, producers, TV/video production companies, ad companies… the list goes on.

But doesn’t everyone write their own music?
Unfortunately not. You’d be surprised at how many songs you hear are not written by the named artist. Even remixers have been know to get them produced externally.It’s been happening for a long time within the music industry, but now it’s much more accessible to anyone, even on a low budget.It is well-known that many of the artists you find in the Beatport top 100 (even the official charts, too) either started out as ghost producers or have used ghost producers. Including some very big names!
Why would I need to buy ready made music?
Many reasons. With ghost produced music the rights are passed to the buyer, so they can do whatever they want with it. Almost anything. That’s a big reason.Some people buy ghost productions because need help finding a new sound - something that stands out, sets them apart or gives them inspiration to try something new. Some want to get some attention, become famous, or make some extra money releasing music that they don’t have the facility or ability to do themselves.Others don’t have enough time to write their own music, or you want to accelerate their song output.Some might need something of a particularly nature for their project. Or maybe they want a standout track for their commercial, TV show or YouTube video.There are many applications for unique music, and many more reasons why people want to own it.
Why would a producer want to sell their music when they can release it themselves?
Many producers do release music themselves. For the others, some just love producing music or don’t want the publicity that can come with a successful release. Others find that they can be more successful through writing for other people. Not everyone aspires to the same goals, and we fully support either road.
What fees do I need to pay?

I’m still not sure. Can I trust you?
Yes. And here’s why.We work closely with producers from all over the world to produce high quality music. They have already signed an agreement to allow us to a) sell the music on the behalf and b) surrender the rights to the music upon sale.We have also collected all files from the producer ahead of time, so when you buy through us we can deliver them straight to you via email. That way you know you’ll get what you paid for and the producer won’t change their mind.We’re also experts. Some of our team have been producing for over 25 years, have had success on seriously big labels and have had songs played at world-renowned festivals. As such, we understand the music, the market and the needs of the buyer and the producer, and we work hard to make sure everybody is happy.We want to be successful. We believe that nurturing our customers and our producers equally is the way to do that, not by being deceitful, untrustworthy and dishonest. It's just not in our blood, anyway.
