HP MASTERING was founded in 2005, in Hamburg, by Hans-Philipp "HP" Graf, whose expertise are now complemented by freelancer Thomas "Tom" Woznik.

Many of the successful independent and major releasesthat have been mastered in the studio have reached No1 chart positions and won gold and platinum awards.

HP's musical career began in his youth, as a guitarist in funk, fusion and jazz bands. He arrived at hip hop via funk and started rapping in the early 90s, later going on to produce his own beats. Over the years, as a result of his ever-growing passion for outstanding sound, HP’s focus was drawn more and more to mixing. A sound engineering course was followed by a university degree and the discovery of his enthusiasm for mastering.

HP works in the genres of hip hop, R&B, house, acoustic, dance, as well as pop and rock.

Tom joined the studio in 2017, bringing his perfectly complementary skills to the mix. At the beginning of the 90s, he played guitar in hardcore bands beforededicating himself to the production of electronic music in the middle of that decade. Since 2005, Tomhas concentrated on mastering, working as an independent engineer until finding his way to HP Mastering.

Tom works in the genres of rock, metal, hardcore, EDM, house, dance and pop.
