Only two years later he founded his first own promotion and marketing company „Public Propaganda“ in 1987. Three years later Jens-Markus and his partner developed the DDC-Clubcharts, which became Europe’s most influential charts to identify trends in the explosively growing dance scene.
In the same year, he founded the music publishing company “AMV Alster Musikverlag” and a couple of years later the dance labels USS and LME – records.
In the early 2000s he initiated the German Dance Awards (GDA) and became a board member at „Deutscher Musikverleger Verband“ (DMV), the German Musicpublishers‘ Association.
