About Master & Servant \ Master & Servant

Master & Servant has made a good name for itself in the music industry. We have not always been able to please everyone 100% of the time during the 29 years we have been in business – but most of the time, we have. Our business partners are independent labels, major labels, music and media producers as well as many great international artists. We produce and deliver for our customers in two adjacent business areas that complement each other well.

In our media manufacturing  department, we produce vinyl records as well as digital image and sound carriers in the form of ready-for-sale merchandise. Here, we offer our customers expert advice, creative project development and professional production management. If required, we can work on every stage of product production, from joint brainstorming to the delivery of ready-to-use commercial products.

Our  music mastering department is where we create music edits with a top-quality, internationally competitive sound. To achieve this, we can promise our clients extensive sound engineering expertise in creating aesthetically pleasing audio design, as well as all the advantages of a mastering studio with an exemplary range of equipment. With our mastering, we complete the long process of music production and deliver a finished music product to the record company.

Mastering house

Master & Servant was founded in 1993 by a small group of independent media professionals as an audio mastering studio. It may sound strange to younger ears, but back then we were one of the first studios in the world to be able to create CD pre-masters using a purely desktop-based workflow. It did not take long for us to become the No. 1 in the (then) music capital of Hamburg – and soon after we were serving a well-known international clientele.

Our current mastering suite in Hamburg was redesigned in 2008 using a scientific approach and was constructed by architectural acoustics experts. In addition to the acoustically perfect listening environment, our studio is generously equipped with cutting-edge analogue and digital technology. Services for our customers include audio mastering, audio enhancement and the creation of production masters for audio soundcarrier production and digital distribution.

B-2-B media manufacturing

Our media manufacturing department has been in existence since 2001 and is now the focus of our operation. Here, we design and manufacture vinyl records, CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs and media packaging – restricting our range to the high-quality market segment. Our products are created in an integrated workflow with a trusted German manufacturing partner with whom we have been working for 20 years.

We fulfil the ongoing merchandise requirements of a solid customer base. Our partners are primarily independent music labels, and we jointly coordinate their production planning. However, musicians and producers who market their own products will also feel right at home with us. In addition, we consult for media companies, art institutions, industry and authorities on all aspects of data carrier production.

About us | Master & Servant


Media manufactured

We have manufactured thousands of media products for indie labels, artists and producers. Together we have developed great concepts and at the end of our work we have always delivered first-class merchandise. And while we love getting into in the details of a project, we never lose sight of the big picture, which is to create a compelling product that takes you a big step further.


Days at work

During this time, the entire music industry turned around itself once, and then upside down. We were witnesses and participants in a furious technical development in music production and media distribution. Today, we have a lot of experience and can say that there is probably no challenge in the industry that we haven’t faced and overcome at least once at some point.


Albums mastered

That many mastered albums, not counting all the singles, have gone out from our mastering studio into the world, and hundreds of them straight into the charts as well. After all the creative work, we are masters in all musical genres, and we can add to any production what it is still missing. This is how we create masters that artists love and that make product managers happy.
