Born and raised in Braunschweig, owner Stefan Kraatz has been living and breathing music for all of his life. After his graduation he studied sound engineering in Berlin, founded a music label and set up his first home studio. In the meanwhile, he built a large network in the music industry, performed as a DJ in Berlin and toured Europe with various known musical artists. For more than 15 years Stefan has been working as a high profiled audio engineer at various well-known studios. In 2020 he finally founded his own studio: "Kraatz Studios GmbH."
Originally from the north of Germany, Maurice Krämer has been living in Berlin for more than 10 years. He studied sound engineering in Hamburg and Berlin and played Europe‘s clubs as a DJ for over more than a decade. Speaking of experience: Maurice’s occupation as an audio engineer and producer for several well-known studios spans the same amount of time. In 2020 Maurice founded “Word Up”, a voice talent management service. He will contribute and advise you as an equally reliable and experienced audio producer at Kraatz Studios.
