With over 20 years of entertainment business experience – from tastemaker club & radio djing, major stage productions from opera to theatre, artistic curating to a ten years marketing experience at Univeral Music – the founder of OHSOTRUE music, Sven Fobbe, looks back on a versatile career in corporate musicbusiness. Living in both major cities of Germany, Hamburg and Berlin, further Oslo and Tokio he very early became infected by both cities music scenes.
The career started in the mid-nineties by promoting artists like drum and bass legend Roni Size, Incognito, US3, Femi Kuti amongst trendy compilation projects like Verve Remixed and Gilles Petersons Worldwide cd series to german media outlets.
I developed extensive marketingcampaigns for recent top jazzacts like Randy Crawford, Roy Hargrove, Salif Keita, chart topping stars like Elvis Costello, Joni Mitchell, Curtis Stigers, George Benson & Al Jarreau, legends like Terry Callier, Dee Dee Bridgewater.
The strong roots in clublife manifested not only in curating a numerous amount of lifestyle and conceptional musiccompilations but also in the work as remix a&r for the german Verve department. Arranging remixes for the labels highlights by Henrik Schwarz, Nicola Conte, De-Phazz, New Sector Movements, Dzihan & Kamien were just the start for curating the long term project and exclusive remix collection MPS JazzReworks featuring the catalogue of the black forest label.
From 2005 to 2008 I shaped and produced the berlin based Verve Club nights showcasing the labels international jazzstars Costello & Toussaint, Lizz Wright, Till Brönner, Ledisi, Torun Eriksen.
In summer 2007 as a further step of producing live events I evolved the concept for and also hosted the Jazzland Summercamp. The norwegian electronicjazz label Jazzland Recs, founded by famous pianist Bugge Wesseltoft, showcased their labelrooster at the innercity beach and swimmingpool location of berlins trendy Badeschiff.
