ARTIST | BERLIN
BERLIN. Libertree is a female producer, singer, songwriter and independent artist. Her sound - downtempo and chilled - mixes elegant melodies with a soulful glitchiness and bass-heavy beats.
„I am an individualist and we live in a world full of categories and stereotypes. Creating a distinct sound and doing things my way is a soft kind of rebellion I guess - it makes me feel free.“
Libertree released her first EP 'DRUMS & LIGHTS: CHAPTER ONE' in late 2016 with a smooth Rnb / Sophisti / Pop Crossover sound that became more electronic, deep and artistic over the years. Her singing smooth and trippy, bold but intimate, her beats artistic and detailed with an affection for sound design and cohesiveness.
„I enjoy mixing things that don’t seem to belong together. Weird and catchy. Retro and modern. Dark and dreamy. The inner and the outer world. Contrast and distortion have always been inspiring to me. I think you can feel that in everything I do.
In Berlin, a colorful and vibrant city, Libertree learned what it means to actively make room for escapism, freedom and independence which had a massive impact on her approach to music as well. She started producing, engineering and releasing projects independently which eventually became part of her sound, singing and character.
Libertrees' new project 'CATCH YOU ON THE FLIP SIDE' (2021) is a love letter to the album format and a smooth, laid back, gloomy but sophisticated perspective on the way we live.
The album is accompanied by a Visualizer w/lyrics for each song.

THE ART OF MASTERING
Brewery X Libertree // Interview // Read HERE
Libertree, you are one of very few females in the engineering/mastering domain. Tell us, how did you become a mastering engineer and what makes this field so interesting to you?
Hey Katie, thank you for having me.
Well, I remember a few years back when I started releasing music and frankly didn’t know much about anything or myself. And there somehow I stumbled upon this blog article where the author was referring to mastering as „the dark arts“ that „nobody really understands“. Obviously, I had to get involved afterwards. It was one of these „challenge accepted“ moments, you know.
But all jokes aside, for me going into mastering was a process with different reasons behind it.
I am an artist myself, so when I started out I felt like learning and understanding some „music vocabulary“. It´s good to know how to properly communicate your vision with engineers and other musicians. Later on, I wanted to understand what makes a good mix that is ready for mastering. Evaluating things from different angles always helps me with the process so looking at my mixes from the perspective of a mastering engineer made sense to me.
Now I feel like I´ve developed a certain fascination for being able to shape music and feelings and eventually create an aesthetic that sounds like the stuff in my head. After all mastering feels like one piece of the puzzle to me.
