Marit Posch (DE)
Music has been my life, from early years on: I studied the piano as a kid, went to a special music school in my teenage years for my highschool diploma and studied classical voice / singing with private teachers while I went to law school at Humboldt Universität Berlin (Germany). After receiving my legal bar exam I finally went to the Hartt School of Music in Hartford / Connecticut (US) to achieve a Graduate Performance Diploma Classical Voice / Opera. Back in Berlin, I - parallel to exploring the classical music world and working for an artist management for classical music artists - I got interested in electronic music and started to write, produce and release my own music. My formerroom mates Gernot and Szary from Modeselektor introduced me to BPitch Control and in 2005 I started working as Head of PR there. As I also wanted to learn about the live / booking business, I, in 2008, went working as a booking agent at Magnet Musik and also started to help Modeselektor with managing their career. In 2009 we set up Monkeytown Records and over the years I worked in pretty much every field of the label business, like PR & Online Marketing, publishing as well as e-commerce and I am currently holding the positions of Label Manager and Artist Manager for Modeselektor.
