Hi there, dear stranger! (ノ・ェ・)
Thanks a lot for visiting my Patreon page! If you don't feel like signing up - no sweat! You can donate any amount you like to support what I do! It means the world to me ✨ヾ(。・ω・)シ ✨

Hey there! My name is Dima Lancaster and I am a musician/multi-instrumentalist/producer and composer currently based in London, United Kingdom.
It was at the age of 15 that I discovered the beauty and true charm of rock music, and decided to devote myself to this genre. Since then I had the opportunity to perform in various bands (two of which I was the founder of), try out different sub-genres (power pop to post-hardcore) and discover a passion for music mixing in late 2010.
In 2011 I made a decision to move the United Kingdom (from my home country of Latvia) to pursue a carrier in music and get a degree in Sound Engineering.
And then, in early 2014 everything changed. I uploaded my first cover ('Click' from Nisekoi) as a Valentine's Day gift for my Facebook friends... a week later it would accumulate over 2,000 views. That's where it all began.

For the time being, I cover songs from various anime series, be it slice-of-life, romance, thriller, horror, sci-fi or fantasy.
Every single instrumental is recorded entirely from scratch and a custom-made lyric video is made for each individual composition.
In late January 2017 I finally launched the Lancaster Acoustics series of videos that's been in the works for a while! Now patrons are able to request any songs they like to be covered acoustically!

At the moment, in order to continue making music (and not starve to death) I have to commit to a part-time job. I try to maintain a somewhat constant release schedule, but it's challenging with only 4 days a week on my hands. Recording, mixing, video editing and content promotion is all done by me, so constant all-nighters and gallons of energy drinks have been my best friends lately.
This is the reason I ask you for help. I've come a long way to be here and now, to make music for you and the only thing I wish for is to be able to do it full-time.
All of this would be pointless if you weren't there for me when I started off and now we've come to the moment I need you the most! Regardless of whether you decide to support me or not, thank you, thank you, thank you!
