Amalgamation Magazine Late Summer/Early Fall No. 14


It’s here: the Amalgamation Magazine 5th Annual Salute to Songwriters, Producers & Music Publishers. Inside this edition, we profile nearly 100 songwriters and producers. We feature cover stories with R&B superband Mint Condition and red-hot rapper A$AP Rocky. We talk with music publishing executives across the board; the curators behind many of today’s top songs. Amalgamation pays tribute to Grammy-winning producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, celebrating their 30th anniversary with ASCAP. And for those looking for career advice, we get words of wisdom from producers Da Internz, Deezle and DJ Mustard, in a column we aptly call, Ask the Producers. Enjoy the issue!
