Producer Desmond "Hashtag" Rasberry Signs Agreement with AMP Music LLC and VVS Society

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 15, 2016) – Producer Desmond “Hashtag” Rasberry signed an exclusive producer agreement with AMP Music LLC and VVS Society.  AMP Music LLC is the brainchild of music industry heavy weight Askia Fountain and Dave Melhado is a partner of VVS Society.  While details of agreement aren’t being released it’s sure to be lucrative for everyone involved.  Desmond’s first major placement was “Tonite” by CAP1, 2 Chainz, Jeremih and Verse Simmonds.  “Desmond is an extremely talented producer.  He’s from my hometown in Florida and his testimony is incredible.  He’s committed to becoming great!” Says Melhado.

Askia Fountain has been in the industry for over 20 years.  His experience includes Management & A&R working alongside Ne-Yo, Russell Simmonds and Atlantic Records.  With an all-star management roster of B.A.M (Tyrese, Chris Brown, Mary J, Usher), Keyz of the Upperclassmen (Bryson Tiller, Rick Ross, Chris Brown) and a few other top ten hits.  This includes Jamie Foxx, Akon, Trey Songz, and Tinashe’s “2on.”  Under Atlantic, Fountain has worked on Cee-lo, B.O.B., Janelle Monae, Wale and the Furious 7 Soundtrack to name a few projects.

 Dave Melhado is the owner of THE MBM Firm and manager of 4x Grammy nominated & 3x BMI Award winning Songwriter Verse Simmonds (Chris Brown, Usher, Jay Z, Kanye West, and Kelly Rowland).  Outside of management Dave has strong roots in marketing and has found a way to merge the relationship between music, art and technology in unique ways to help expand his brand and give back to the community.
