1 - A ghost composer.
2 - A ghost musical producer.
3 - A ghost sound engineering producer.
4 - All of the above in one pack.
But taking a ride on the topic any idea on how much those professionals charge? I guess it is a profitable market.
It is quite probable there are some "affordable" but quality ghost producers out there. Everyone is making dance music and there are massive amounts of good information out there. But you are definitely going to get what you pay for. I wouldn't expect to get something truly playable next to a hot commercial dance track for less than 200-300 USD all in. And I have a feeling I'm probably guessing low realistically.
Also @OP: being musical isn't really a requirement any more. There are so many tools that will basically do the musical work for you. Sample packs and pre sets mean you don't have to program a synth or even make your own drum patterns. If you can get a quasi decent mix, mastering a track is pretty reasonable. It would be a bigger initial investment, but cheaper in the long run.

The stupidally post it on his own channel asking for 50 likes for the flp.
This is a very strange request for an IDM forum. I don't know what you'd expect to get out of having someone ghost-produce IDM for you - certainly not fame or money or the ability to impress the girls/guys with your "skillz" (unless the person in question just happens to be super cool, in which case you're extra lame for suggesting things that aren't true).
why would anyone need a ghost producer? just hating on anyone.. just asking.
If you don't know how to produce music, but want everyone to think you do, - you hire a professional producer to produce the music for you. You pay the producer a one-time amount for signing over the rights to the music to you - and also make them sign a non-disclosure contract (legally binding them to keep the arrangement a secret). To everyone outside it'll look like you produced the music, which might be the image you want to create for yourself or an artist on your label.
Like, for example, the image of a beautiful young woman who produces all her own music herself - might sell better than the image of a middle-aged synth slob producing for an untalented bimbo.
Top level ghost producers can potentially make a lot of money this way, but it's impossible to tell just how common it really is (because of the non-disclosure contracts).
