Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its roster?
ZMC was founded in 2022 as a producer management company. Still a one-man show, we manage producers, songwriters and do case-by-case consulting for industry friends.
And can you tell us a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment?
Exclusive signings: Marco Lesche (a.o. ThxSoMch, Eyelar, Madeline Juno, Ivo Martin) and Freddy Rochow (a.o. Clide, Paula Jiven, Leepa, Sofía Martín). Dear to my heart, gifted producers and great songwriters.
They both have a feel for pop-appeal (one might call it Zeitgeist). Where Marco does more leftfield, Freddy does more hyper-pop. The capacity to draw from their versatility is what makes each of them really good.
