Dee Lishus on SoundBetter

Owner of Pampton Records. Multi-instrumentalist.

My services include music production and live recording (composition, arrangements, recording, mixing and mastering). I have worked on multiple TV-shows and local radio-stations as a sound engineer, recorder a few tracks/produced few beats and through the MPA - Music Production Academy had over 700h in proffesional Recording Studios in Croatia and Slovenia. That experience gave me the opportunity to attend seminars of world famous producers/artis (Steve Albini, Andrew Scheps, Yogi Lonich).

As a producer, I've had chance to work with Rap/RNB/Pop/Jazz artist. As for myself, I produce a lot of Hip-Hop and Trap beats,as well as Deep/Jazz/Nu-Soul/House songs.
