The knowledge gathered from an unknown source states that ghost production prevails majorly in EDM industry. An anonymous source had revealed the official documents . According to that, John James Borger (Borgeous) and Spinnin’ Records that provide an evidence of transacting a payment to KSHMR for producing two songs for Borgeous.
Not just that, the source has provided an official Recording Agreement between Borgeous and Deep Dish Inc. Deep Dish Inc. is a recording company owned by KSHMR. The proofs do not just signify the transaction of payment. They also state the amendment in the agreement. It states that, Borgeous signs with Spinnin’ Records. Also, it disallows KSHMR from receiving any credit on recordings released under Borgeous’ name.
The two contracts reveal Borgeous’ track “They Don’t Know Us,” released in March of 2015, and his collaboration with Lights, “Zero Gravity,” released in June of 2015. According to the two contracts, KSHMR earned 50% from Spinnin’s purchase of the “They Don’t Know Us” master, and 25% for “Zero Gravity”. An additional 25% and 12.5%, respectively, were also designated for KSHMR via Deep Dish Inc
The contracts revealed were not just the only proofs signifying that artists like Borgeous use ghost producers. In June of 2015, KSHMR was accused by Mat Zo of ghost producing for Carnage. Also, KSHMR showed up, famously, in the ASCAP credits for Borgeous and DVBBS’ breakout hit, “Tsunami,” as well as Borgeous’ tracks “Beast,” “Celebration,” “Invincible,” “Stampede,” “Wildfire” and more. This makes it subtle that Borgeous’s ghost production team surely involves KSHMR.
These cases make two things very solid. Firstly, ghost production widely exists in EDM industry. It’s almost time that people embrace it, as all that matters is good music. Secondly, ghost production is currently a very flourishing career and people passionate about it, can excel in it.
