A Ghost Producer (or Ghost Writer) is a producer who produces music credited to another person. Ghost Producers are often used for writing music for popular genres, artists, acts or brands.

The Ghost Producer remains anonymous and operates only in the background, not seeking to be in the spotlights.

Within Dance Music Ghost Production is very common. Often used by artists to give a boost to their career, by DJs that do not have time to be in the studio, by established brands to be able to release a steady amount of new music or record labels to establish their identity.
