repeat was established as a one-woman-music-agency in Berlin in November 2019 to create a community of music appreciators and to support fellow independent creatives and start-ups with culturally-savvy copywriting and translation services.
After five years of independent music journalism, repeat magazine has evolved into the music expert copywriting agency repeat redaktion, based in the international center of independent music culture in Berlin Neukoelln.
repeat redaktion was founded by Susanne Heßmann, M.A. Cultural scientist, independent music journalist, editor, published author in visual arts studies and feminism, DJ, part of the Music Women Germany network and a classically trained pianist and musician. In 2019 she completed the professional business foundation program with a certification by the start-up center Garage Berlin for building the repeat brand.
articles of music journalism and cultural journalism have been published by Byte.FM, motor.de, All Hollow magazine, Berlin Art Parasites, debizz magazine, Apple Music, wasp magazine, in the publishing house Märkischer Zeitungsverlag and many more. Susanne Heßmann was awarded a scholarship by the Romanian Cultural Institute in Bucharest in 2017 for a journalistic research project on the music scene. She looks back on three years PR and communications work for art spaces and 5 years in international and German web agencies as a copywriter (storytelling, interview, social media, marketing campaigns), senior content editor, project manager, as a localisation expert and online campaign manager.
