About
Der Büro.9 Verlag beschäftigt sich im Schwerpunkt mit den Themen Soul-, Funk- und Jazzmusik. Kernstück des Verlages ist die Zeitschrift “uptown strut”. Das Magazin ist im Bahnhofs- und Flughafen-Buchhandel sowie im gut sortierten Zeitschriftenhandel zu erwerben.

“uptown strut” erscheint zweimal im Jahr und widmet sich den Genres Rare Grooves und der aktuellen Soul-, Jazz- und Funk-Szene. Gegenüber anderen Jazz-Magazinen richtet sich die uptown strut weniger an ein elitäres, verkopftes Jazz-Publikum, sondern versteht sich vielmehr als Sprachrohr einer jungen, Dancefloor-affinen Soul- und Funk-Gemeinde. Der typische uptown strut Leser kauft auch heute noch CDs oder Vinyl-Schalplatten und tanzt in Clubs zu schweißtreibendem altem und neuem Soul, Dancefloor-Jazz und Funk. Die Zeitschrift erscheint in einer Auflage von 10.000 Exemplaren.

About
Frame is the world’s barometer of interior design. The magazine shows you what’s happening and where to find it.

The latest interiors and products, spiced up with some art, shop windows and sets: that’s the essence of Frame magazine. We gather the most interesting work from around the globe and package it in six tactile issues a year. Since we believe that our readers are first and foremost viewers who like to ‘read’ images, the magazine focuses on photos and drawings. We don’t neglect text, however. In fact, we put a lot of energy in finding the story behind each design we publish. We write these stories in easy-to-understand, down-to-earth English.

Loaded with nothing but the best in contemporary design, Frame is an inspiring and indispensable reference for professionals in interior design and other creative pursuits.

We go back to Indiana and explore his hometown, talk to the Mizells about the Corporation, and chat with songwriters that MJ paired with through the years. // Also: Wah Wah Watson, Bertram Brown, Nicky Siano.

About
+rosebud is a design magazine that operates with the desire to explore and exhaust the possibilities and potentials that paper and 2D-structure have to offer. The symbolic name, a derivation from the the last, mysterious word that the newspaper tycoon stammers out in Orson Welles’ film classic “Citizen Kane,” figuratively indicates that +rosebud is an attempt to explain the puzzle “medium”—keeping Welles’ experimental spirit in mind.
