Dimitri McDowell on SoundBetter

I have been professionally singing & songwriting with labels like UMPG,Sony, Warner, and major artist since 2014 writing my first single Lecrae - "Nuthin", Chris Brown - To My Bed, Wiz Khalifa - Something New, Usher "A" album, Tinashe - touch & go, all major singles on Top 40 billboard charts. Shopping music is my specialty

If you are looking for Production, Hooks, Full Songs, engineering, Vocal Production, Mixing &/or Mastering, I can provide quality performance and everything it takes for you to be fully satisfied and better with your sound with mixing and mastering. I take my time with quality, expensive melodies and creating a imagery of a great concept to write about. I can demo your song and add my sauce after writing and creating the concept if you don’t present me with one already.
- I work well with literally any genre and well versatile in every STYLE.
We can bounce back and forth to your liking but usually once you give me your description of what you are looking for, I am quite professional at being accurate when delivering.
- I will go above and beyond the extent of what you ask me for, being that I am a ONE STOP SHOP, I will slightly even mix what ever I am working on DURING the process because my template is one that has been used by many of the greats in the Industry.
- If you are happy with what you hear and you decide “hey, I like the way this sonically sounds, I wanna record with this guy”, we can set up a time and day for you to come to my studio to save money, and to receive the best industry quality that you will find.
- You are open to any masters or publishing that we generously discuss upon completion of record.
I will also automatically mix the records.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Dimitri has a rare gift for crafting melodies that both capture the energy of the production, while still allowing room for the lyrics to resonate with the listener. Looking forward to working with him again!

    I contacted dimitri after seeing reviews and hearing his sample and i was super excited to work. He initiated a transaction , told me to pay him outside of sound better. I am sure if you stay within sound betters platform, dimitri will deliver. As of right now, I paid him outside of sound better, and i haven't received anything from him. I have barely received communication from him , and when I contact him he tells me he will just block me. I am pushing on 2 months without receiving my money back or the song I paid for. Very disappointing , because I really wanted to work with him.

    Worked with many writers and by far Dimitri is one of the best. Turn around time is quick, and the quality of delivery is above expectation and industry standard. He’s patient and just all around amazing to work with. Will continue to hire him!! 💕💕

    I've been working with Dimitri McDowell since July and it's been nothing but a joy and a pleasure. Dimitri has taken the time to get to know me as a friend and know my story so when we write together, he is able to incorporate autobiographical material in the lyrics. I can't say enough good things about his songwriting ability, being attuned to what's popular in the industry, while remaining a true genuine artist. His vocals are beautiful and his harmonies are unparalleled. He's also an incredible rapper... just a beast of a talent. I'm blessed to know and make music with him.

    Wow Dimitri delivered on a whole project for me 6 song ep of quality smash records and really worked fast, and kept communication open and fluent. Working with him is really a stress free experience, and I always get exactly what I’m looking for. Also he’s a generous person and will really work within your budget.
