Humanworkshop is a loose collective of electronic music producers and audio professionals. We are a label, manufacturing and releasing CD albums alongside offering free MP3 downloads of exclusive tunes and DJ/live recordings. We are an audio services company, producing content for any conceivable form of online and offline media. And we are a blog and e-zine, writing and publishing articles related to audio production, music composition and new media. As a music collective and netlabel, we aim to cover a wide area of electronica and beats genres without being part of any particular scene. We are not a dubstep label, not drum and bass collective; rather we like to look at ourselves as a group that combines virtually any modern style with more authentic and traditional music. We are interested in music that merges contemporary production with samples and recordings of 'real-world', physical instruments. As an audio services company, we like to think we are a versatile bunch of professionals, able of producing sound design and music tailor-made to the wishes of our clients. We have worked for big and small clients alike, ranging from the BBC, Nike to non-profit, government funded projects. Humanworkshop was established in 2000 by Daan Hendriks, Gerrit Elbrink and Remus Ockels, then first year Audio Design students at the HKU in Hilversum. In 2009, we merged with netlabel and e-zine Fant00m in a move to expand our range and offer more quality content. As a result of this merger, Durk Kooistra entered the core team of Humanworkshop. We are all about collaboration, so whoever you are and whatever you do, if you feel a connection to our activities and would like to talk to us, then please don't hesitate to get in touch!

2009 was a very busy year for HWS indeed, we launched our new website, merged with Net-label and E-zine Fant00m (resulting in a completely new section of the website). We shared free tutorials, samples, presets and virtual instruments.
And besides all these things we are a bunch of audio professionals doing our daily work with full dedication.
To make this year complete we selected a nice collection of releases in our Holiday Special:
Damscray - Your Rainbow Color Changer EP Blending exotic, nomadic beats with a myriad of other influences, Damscray delivers a rather cinematic EP. Definitely another highlight in our ever growing net catalog. Download and enjoy
Maartez & Frits - Live @ Stork Maartez and Frits are both talented musicians that have found an exceptional way of combining live instruments (Frits on drum) and electronic music (Maartez laptop). Download & enjoy
Mentz - Piani EP Mentz has graced us with another lovely 'n dusty EP. This time Mentz teamed up with 3 musicians to add an extra vibe to the EP. So, open your finest bottle, light your smoke, kick back and hit repeat! Download & enjoy
