Have a listen to some of our mastering work

Hip Hop is about feeling, getting your message across and hard hitting bass and drums.

We use the same high quality equipment as we do any type of music and tried and tested plugins we have handpicked out of the thousands that are out there. We don’t take shortcuts here at Space16, but have found other places do.

We mastered the recent track Fashion Week by Steel Bangelz that got to number 7 in the charts as well as various other tracks for labels such as Island and Universal records.

We have over 20 years experience mastering audio and making records stand out from the crowd.

At Space16 Mastering we use Wavelab Pro alongside a hybrid mastering chain of digital and analog tools.

As well as using our full range monitoring system, we also test your music on a range of other systems. These include headphones, iPod Earbuds & a small Hi-Fi System. This means that your tracks sounds as good as possible on all playback systems.

Here for you and your music…

We work closely with our customers and understand that every project and their sound is different. Over the years we have worked on music from Trance to Rock, Drum-N-Bass to Chill-out.

You can even send reference tracks of music you like the sound of. This gives us an idea of the results you’re looking for dynamically and tone wise. Alternatively you can just leave us to do our magic.

Online hip hop mastering is a remote service whereby tracks are sent in over the internet and files are returned the same way.
