In Memory of 100 Years Hans Bradtke

Hans Bradtke (* 1920; † 1997) actually planned on becoming an architect. After working different illustrator jobs, he started designing sheet music in 1947 for the music publisher just recently formed by Rolf Budde and Gerhard Froboess – this was his first musical touchpoint. Together with Gerhard Froboess he wrote his first ever “Schlager” hit in 1951 for Froboess’s daughter Cornelia, which was the well-known hit “Pack die Badehose ein”. This was only the start of his career as one of the most successful lyricists of German music history: His songs and evergreens are known to everyone – songs such as „Weiße Rosen aus Athen”, “Carnaby Street” or “Er hat ein knallrotes Gummiboot” have had a considerable impact on German pop culture until today. His German versions of songs by French singers such as France Gall (“Ein bisschen Goethe, ein bisschen Bonaparte”) or Joe Dassin (“Champs Elyseees) helped them having their musical breakthrough in Germany. His witty translations of international hits such as “Rote Lippen soll man küssen” or “Das kannst du mir nicht verbieten”, also played a central role in his overall glory. Huge international success was also not far, with legendary songs such as Nat King Coles „Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer“ (“Du spielst ‘ne tolle Rolle”) or “Der Sommerwind” (“Summer Wind”), which Frank Sinatra sung as well and made it a huge banger in the states, as well as the well-known song “Kalkutta Liegt Am Ganges” (“Tivoli Melodie”), Hans Bradtke made a name for himself on an international level. Hans Bradtke’s story closely intertwines with the history of Rolf Budde Music Publishing and he remained faithful in his Edition Primus until his unfortunate death in 1997. A close friendship still deeply connects both families until today.

Nach Stationen als Pressezeichner und Karikaturist beginnt er 1947 Notenblätter unter anderem für den gerade gegründeten Musikverlag von Rolf Budde und Gerhard Froboess zu gestalten und kommt in Kontakt mit der Musik. Gemeinsam mit Gerhard Froboess schrieb er 1951 für dessen Tochter Cornelia seinen ersten großen Schlager “Pack die Badehose ein”. Der gebürtige Berliner wurde so zu einem der erfolgreichsten Textdichter der deutschen Musikgeschichte. Seine Hits und Evergreens sind jedem bekannt – Songs wie “Weiße Rosen aus Athen”, “Carnaby Street” oder “Er hat ein knallrotes Gummiboot” haben die deutsche Popkultur bis heute geprägt. Französischen Sänger*Innen wie France Gall (“Ein bisschen Goethe, ein bisschen Bonaparte”) oder Joe Dassin (“Champs Elyseees) verhalf er nicht zuletzt mit seinen deutschen Texten zum Durchbruch in Deutschland. Einen großen Anteil an seinem Ruhm hatten auch seine cleveren deutschen Übersetzungen großer internationaler Hits, wie “Rote Lippen soll man küssen” oder “Das kannst du mir nicht verbieten”. Große internationale Erfolge feierte Hans Bradtke schließlich mit legendären Songs wie Nat King Coles „Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer“ (“Du spielst ‘ne tolle Rolle”), “Der Sommerwind” (“Summer Wind”), welcher Frank Sinatra ebenfalls als Interpret übernahm und es sich so wie ein Lauffeuer in den USA verbreitete, sowie mit dem allbekannte Song “Kalkutta Liegt Am Ganges” (“Tivoli Melodie”). Hans Bradtke ist tief verwurzelt in der gemeinsamen Geschichte mit dem Rolf Budde Musikverlag und blieb diesem mit der Edition Primus bis zu seinem Tod 1997 treu. Bis heute verbindet beide Familien eine enge Freundschaft.

Budde Music Publishing’s UK Arm Busy Flexing it’s Signing Muscle

Newly appointment Budde Music Senior A & R Sina Wahnschaffe (based at the Budde Berlin office) has signed Dublin based hip-hop artist JAFARIS who has now become one of the foremost players in a new generation of Irish hip hop. Jafaris has previously received critical praise for his debut album STRIDE - nominated for RTE Choice Music Award - Album of The Year 2019. Jafaris musical calling came a little later than most. Before the dazzling lyricism and poetic resonance, he brought to the emerging Irish music scene, dance had always been his passion and career path. It was through a dance audition that the multi-talented musician landed the role of Ngig in the 2016 Irish film sensation ‘Sing Street’ directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker John Carney. Musically, his uncompromising fluency of expression means he is now as exciting as he’s ever sounded. In 2017, Jafaris hooked up with Diffusion Lab music production hub and artist management agency that’s seen a whole bunch of remarkable talent come through its doors. Since joining the team, the triple threat - rapper, actor and dancer, has gone on to become a knock-out performer. In 2017 he also signed deal with Primary Talent booking, sharing the live roster with Stormzy, J Hus and Wretch32. In 2018 he went one further and represented Ireland at Eurosonic Festival in Holland 2018, played the main stage at biggest Irish hip hop festival Longitude, and returned to Electric Picnic Festival with the RTÉ orchestra and what’s more, he performed at Late Late TV show debuting his single Time and joined Joy Crookes performing ‘Early’ on Jools Holland TV show. Since the release of his debut album ‘Stride’, Jafaris has seen huge support from Radio 1 (Annie Mac), Kiss, Spotify and press, including NME who described Jafaris as ‘one of the most exciting new prospects from Irish rap’s rising wave’. His most recent single,the excellent ‘Glue’ has further established his style and is a tantlalising taster of further music to come later this year. Jafaris ‘It’s a great pleasure to be signed to Budde. Upon meeting the team I felt a sense of family which made it hard for me to go elsewhere. I’m excited to learn, grow, and make history with them. Extremely grateful for the opportunity.’ Sina Wahnschaffe ‘We are very honoured to welcome such a great talent to our roster – I am so happy to work with Jafaris on his artist project as well as developing him as a great songwriters for others.’ Ivan @ DFL Management adds ‘ We had few options on the table, but Budde Music made our decision easy by presenting us with a really strong plan. I'm happy for Jafaris and very excited to be working within the Budde family’. Seth Hodder, Senior A & R, London, ‘Budde Music Publishing continues to sign and nurture a skilled and diverse roster. It’s an honour to welcome Jafaris to the Budde Music international team.’

Dolce Rita and Budde Music Cooperate on Publishing

With the greatest delight Budde Music and Dolce Rita Music & Publishing announce their joint venture on the publishing side. Budde Music will take over the world-wide administration of their catalogue and together they will sign new talented writers. From l.t.r.: Ender Atis (COO, Budde Music Publishing), Peer Steinwald (Senior A&R Manager, Budde Music Publishing), Rita Flügge-Timm (CEO, DolceRita Publishing), Benjamin Budde (CEO, Budde Music Publishing), Jennifer Belger (Senior Creative Manager/A&R, DolceRita Publishing), Ulrich Wehner (Rechtsanwalt) Since Rita Flügge-Timm founded the publisher in 2008, it can now account for more than 500 musical works. Artists and writers such as Beatrice Reszat (Udo Lindenberg), Martin Tingvall, Jens Carstens (Heinz Rudolf Kunze), Sascha Reimann (Ferris MC/Deichkind), Mateor Jaschik (Culcha Candela), Alexa Faser, Lina Maly and many more are part of Dolce Rita Music Publishing. A special focus in working together will be the creation of synergies in the A&R department. “In the last couple of years Budde Music has developed to being one of the most innovative publishers with a strong roster comprising top writers and artists, who have found a trusting partner in Budde, as well as a steady development of new A&R concepts. I am confident that Benjamin and his team will be an enrichment for our work and that together we will form the careers of many upcoming writers and artists,” says Rita Flügge-Timm (CEO, DolceRita Publishing und ScoreEncore Film Music Publishing). Benjamin Budde (CEO, Budde Music Publishing) further adds: “Rita Flügge-Timm and Jennifer Belger showcase impressive expertise in the A&R world, especially concerning German-speaking repertoire. I have been a fan of Rita’s individual artist management for many years now and there is no other power-duo, which has developed musical careers this successfully as these two. We have known and valued each other for a while now and are super excited to foster the careers of promising artists and writers together.” Next to Budde Music’s expertise, Flügge-Timm also endorses their joint values due to both companies being indie-publishers: “Budde Music is an ideal partner for us publishingwise. We are both strong in the independent game – Benjamin Budde and his team share our values of partnership, dependability and solidarity, being a family-run business. But also core principals such as professionalism, stamina, flexibility and active A&R work are rooted in both our companies.” Dolce Rita und Budde Music arbeiten verlaglich zusammen Mit großer Freude verkünden Budde Music Publishing und DolceRita Music & Publishing ihre Zusammenarbeit auf Verlagsseite. Ab sofort wird Budde Music den bisherigen Katalog weltweit administrieren und zukünftig talentierte Autoren gemeinsam unter Vertrag nehmen. Seit der Gründung durch Rita Flügge-Timm im Jahr 2008 verzeichnet der Verlag inzwischen mehr als 500 Werke. Künstler und Autoren wie Beatrice Reszat (Udo Lindenberg), sowie Martin Tingvall, Jens Carstens (u.a. Heinz Rudolf Kunze), Sascha Reimann (Ferris MC/Deichkind), Mateo Jaschik (Culcha Candela), Alexa Feser, oder Lina Maly werden von dem Hamburger Verlag erfolgreich vertreten. Auch zwei der maßgeblichen beiden Alben von Alexa Feser „Gold von morgen“ und „Zwischen den Sekunden“ sind bei DolceRita verlegt. Ein besonderer Fokus soll in der Zusammenarbeit auf Synergien im A&R Bereich gelegt werden. „In den letzten Jahren hat sich Budde Music zu einem der innovativsten Verlagsunternehmen entwickelt,  das vielen hochkarätigen Top-Autoren und Künstlern eine langfristige und vertrauensvolle Heimat bietet und darüber hinaus eigenständige A&R Konzepte entwickelt. Ich bin ganz sicher, dass wir uns mit Benjamin und seinem Team hervorragend ergänzen werden und viele großartige Autoren und Künstler gemeinsam zum Erfolg führen,” so Rita Flügge-Timm (CEO, DolceRita Publishing und ScoreEncore Film Music Publishing). Benjamin Budde (CEO, Budde Music Publishing) fügt hinzu: „Rita Flügge-Timm und Jennifer Belger weisen eine beeindruckende A&R Expertise mit einem Fokus auf deutschsprachiges Repertoire vor. Ich bin schon seit Jahren ein Riesen-Fan von Ritas persönlicher Künstlerbetreuung und es gibt quasi kein zweites Power Duo, was so nah und über so viele Jahre erfolgreich Themen erarbeitet und begleitet hat wie diese beiden. Wir kennen und schätzen uns schon lange und freuen uns, ungemein erfolgsversprechende Künstler und Autoren auf ihrem Karriereweg gemeinsam zu unterstützen.“ Neben der Expertise befürwortet Flügge-Timm ebenso die gemeinsamen Werte die man als Indie-Verlag teilt. „Mit Budde Music haben wir unseren absoluten Wunschpartner im Verlagsbereich gefunden: Wir sind beide starke „Indies“, das Team um Benjamin Budde hat als Familienunternehmen ähnliche Vorstellungen von einer Zusammenarbeit  wie wir – Werte wie Partnerschaft, Verlässlichkeit, Zusammenhalt aber auch Tempo, Professionalität, Durchsetzungsvermögen und Flexibilität stehen hier im Vordergrund, ebenso wie die aktive und hervorragende A&R Arbeit mit einem der besten Teams in Deutschland.“
