M_nus have hired Seth Hodder from Mute/NovaMute as their new Berlin based General Manager.
Minus was started in 1998 by Richie Hawtin originally as an outlet for his own musical experiments and endeavours. Over the past eight years Minus has grown into an imprint representing a future generation of like-minded electronic artists.
Owner & President Richie Hawtin comments, 'as Acting Label Manager, Clark has been an invaluable member of the Minus family, and with his help and dedication over the years, Minus has grown into a strong presence within the electronic music community. Seth brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with him from his years at Mute/NovaMute, and can help us move into new territories and further develop our artists. This is an important step for the development of Minus and for all of our future plans.'
After a successful 2006, which saw Minus win Label of the Year in both German magazine Groove and website Resident Advisor, the label will be gearing up into 2007 with new releases by Heartthrob, Ambivalent, JPLS, False, Gaiser, Magda, a compilation of Minus classics and rumoured new Hawtin material.
The Minus website m-nus.com will re-launch mid February.
