Amalgamation – Summer 2009


Issue 1 (Summer 2009)

After 16 years as Managing Editor of Urban Network, David Mitchell launched the inaugural issue of Amalgamation Magazine: An Industry Quarterly. Thanks to the music publishing community, the first edition was a shining success. From the beginning and every issue hence, the flip front cover concept has been utilized, as a way to maximize content and provide much-needed exposure for artists. The magazine is paginated to give the perception of two-magazines in one; thus both covers having equal billing.
