The only people that seem to use ghost writers are djs that are so fucking insecure that they can't let anyone know they have no talent because the dance scene is the only scene where someone with nothing can actually fake it and get away with it. Even Snooky says her own lines. Every other act that uses other people manages to credit them.

Oh wow. I have recently gotten into Glenn Morrisons stuff and him and Jerome Ismae were kind of my new favorite producers.
I think it is strange that someone who masters tracks would need or want a ghostwriter though.
Am I wrong in assuming ghostwriting for big name DJs like Tiesto or Steve Aoki is more profitable than getting your track released on a large EDM label that works on royalties? It seems like getting a check for 20,000 dollars (I don't know how much you would get) for a track that you would never get credit for would be a lot more stable than trying to make that much by getting 25 cents a download or something in royalties.
Songwriter/artist and reluctant producer.
