Dread Pitt on SoundBetter

Blending world music with hip hop, trap, and other rhythms.

With 8 years of producing experience, I have made and released many singles, which have accumulated over 15 million streams to date.
My main focus is hip hop, with influences from world music. Next to the producing, I also mix and master my own music, and the vocals of artists on my music.
I love releasing my own music as an independent artist, but I also love producing for other artists. For production work, I'm open to many genres and sounds, adjusted to the artist's needs.
