I'm a rapper! And I'm looking to work with you...
My name is Lewis Dimelow. I'm a hip-hop/rap artist from the United Kingdom, however, I don't sound like your typical UK hip-hop artist.
I've worked with artists from around the world on various songs, either my own, or featuring on other songs and projects. I've worked with Kung Fu Vampire and Playboy the Beast on my own projects. On top of this, I've dropped numerous verses for Jinzx, AnT DeF and many more artists.
I want to be able to create music that people want to play over and over again. I want my music to be able to connect with people, all around the world. Every song I write for, I always put in 110% to make sure that I'm constantly put out hard-hitting lyrics that connect with people on an emotional and personal level, whether it be a personal or a storytelling project.

Interview with R3DD L
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I've worked on various projects that I absolutely love. My most meaningful song, "Fake Smile", I've wanted to record that song and put it out to the world for years. I've suffered through depression and hidden it so many times, as I know a lot of other people do, too. I've got a song called "No Witnesses", which features Playboy the Beast, Kung Fu Vampire and Jinzx. The feedback from all the artists was amazing when it came to the finalised project. Last but not least, I featured on a song called "Sleeping On A Maniac" by Jinzx which features Playboy the Beast on verse 2, myself on the 3rd verse and Nos Insidious taking the 4th. That song was such fun to write and if anyone has the opportunity to hear the song, you'll be able to tell how much I was enjoying dropping bars on there.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a few different things. Right now, I'm working on an album that I'd like to release in 2022.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I don't know any of my clients or artists that I've worked with who are signed up to SoundBetter, right now.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It has to be a mixture of both, for me, personally.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to bring to anyone I work with, the best of my abilities. I don't ever want to give someone a product that I'm not happy with.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Writing music. That's what I love the most. I'm a creative person and music is my passion. It's my art. It's also an outlet, for me.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I usually get asked how long it'll take to get a project finished. If I've accepted a job and I'm feeling the beat, most of the time, I can have it back on the same day. I always tell people that it can take up to 5 working days, just in case I have a busy schedule.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: A lot of people think I'm horrorcore based, which I'm definitely not. I've dabbled in that side of hip-hop as it falls under storytelling. I can write to anything.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: If they don't tell me, I will always ask what the client is looking for. Do you want a hard-hitting verse? Do you want something meaningful? What kind of sound are you looking for? Do you want me to do my own thing? I like to be sure the client is getting what they're paying for.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If it comes to hiring myself, I like people to be open and honest about what they're looking for. If they want me to stick to a certain topic etc, I'd always recommend talking to whoever you're looking to hire about all your ideas. I like to receive the song to listen to it, to make sure I'm getting the right vibes.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, mic, sound card, earphones and guitar.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been writing music since I was 16 and recording since I was 24.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I don't really have a style. I can write most styles of hip-hop songs.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd absolutely love to work with Eminem. The main reason is, growing up, he's always been an inspiration. The way he manipulates the sound of words to make them rhyme is unbelievable. He'd always be my number one choice, if I was ever given the opportunity.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: When it comes to music production, just make sure you're in a good frame of mind. If you're tired, you're easily going to burn yourself out and that's not good.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on hip-hop songs, however, I'm always looking at working on other genres.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill would be recording music. I'm always at my happiest, when I'm recording my lyrics on to songs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a lot to a song. When artists on a song are already dropping hard-hitting bars, I need to make sure that I'm bringing the same energy into the project. I like the competition.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Before I begin working on any anything, I like to make sure I'm feeling what I'm listening to. So, I'll play through the song 3-4 times. Once I've got a feeling, every other time I play the track, I start freestyling, writing down bars, editing and eventually look at finalising them. Then once I've done, I like to rehearse a couple of times, before recording my takes. I like to aim for one or two takes at the most.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio set up consists of an sE 2200a II C Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone, which is connected to a 3rd Generation Focusrite 2i2. My DAW's which I use for my mixes and mastering are FL Studio and Cubase.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: When it comes to writing music, artists like Eminem have always been an inspiration to me, when I was growing up. Even now, I'll listen back to his older music which I was listening to, when I was younger.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My works are either, recording verses and chorus' for artists. I also mix and master for a lot of artists.
