Producer and label head Nicky Romero told Fuse TV News in a recent interview what he thought about producers who seemed to rely all too much on ghost production.
“What I really don’t like and what I really don’t respect or support are guys that email a producer and say ‘hey I want to have a record, it must sound like this’ and they’re not involved at all.”
As a ghost producer himself, Nicky Romero takes pride in his work and said that he dislikes those that take advantage of that.
The producer has worked for huge artists like Brittany Spears and Rihanna and is now working on some tracks for David Guetta’s upcoming album.
But the fun comes to a halt when Romero comes across producers and artists who lack creativity, discipline, and originality.
“What I really don’t like and what I really don’t respect or support is guys that email a producer and say ‘hey I want to have a record, it must sound like this’ and they’re not involved at all” said the Dutch producer.
He even criticized some DJs in DJ Mag telling Fuse that there are a lot of DJs “that do that and they don’t even know how to make their music, they don’t even know how to start the software.”
Of course, Romero told Fuse that those kinds of situations aren’t right because of the hard work that others pour into the production.
“We spend so much time and put so much effort in making sounds and making the arrangements” he said, “and you just send an email like ‘I’m going to pay you a certain amount of money and I want to have a song’ that’s just insane you know.”
