Owner & President Richie Hawtin comments, as Acting Label Manager, Clark has been an invaluable member of the Minus family, and with his help and dedication over the years, Minus has grown into a strong presence within the electronic music community. Seth brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with him from his years at Mute/NovaMute, and can help us move into new territories and further develop our artists. This is an important step for the development of Minus and for all of our future plans.
