Andy Baldwin started at Metropolis in 1996 and honed his craft under the most renowned Mastering Engineers in Europe; Tim Young, Tony Cousins and Ian Cooper.

The 3 engineers passed onto Andy an exceptionally high benchmark to master to and instilled an uncompromising work ethic that belies his affectionate nickname of ‘Hippy’. Upon Tim Young’s retirement in 2019, Andy moved into Tim’s studio, taking on a number of his clients and projects.

Having grown up on the underground music scene, Andy loves working with up-and-coming independent artists. Often mastering projects that prove instrumental in taking the artist to the next level of their career, Andy has worked on pivotal releases for Jacob Banks, Wretch 32, Hidden Orchestra and Sundara Karma.

As well as working with many new acts such as Gaffa Tape Sandy, Shunaji, Hannah Trigwell and Kida Kudz, Andy has worked with a number of his musical influences including The Who, Blur, The Orb and Oasis.
