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 from music and arts with culturally-savvy copywriting and translations.
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, Master of Arts in Cultural Studies, 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.
