Composer · Producer · Audio Engineer
Philipp Güntner, Capital P., was born in Ratisbon, Germany.
He started playing saxophone and drums when he was 13 years old and
participated in a local big band. He went to Russia and Brasil for touring and
concerts. His inspiration for music is coming from Soul, Hip Hop, R’n’B and
Trap. Always having an ear and interest for the instrumental part of a song he
decided to start making a beat in the basement of his parents’ home in 2014.
His productions feature a lot of live instruments, synthesizers and vocal
sounds. He is also experimenting with different effects to create
new ideas and innovative sounds.
One of his key features is his clean, wavy, and hard hitting drum sound along
with a big sounding melodic structure and arrangement.
He won the IStandard international producer showcase in July 2015 and
attended IStandard’s Beast Of The Beats in December 2015 in Atlanta.
In march 2014 he started to work with Ableton.
After a year of mostly sampling and learning the basics of production and
song structure, Capital P. started to work on live sounds with other musicians.
Since last year his productions mostly contain self composed or recorded sounds.
Starting the beginning of 2016, he immersed himself more in mixing and mastering.
There he made a lot of great connections and got an impeccable insight in the
business. This manifested his dream in pursuing a career in the music industry.
In November 2016 he became a certified audio engineer.
In April 2017 he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Audio
Production from the SAE Institute in Munich.
