Drop Dead Beats Publishing

Adrian "Drop" Santalla has tracked and mixed songs for artists like Fat Joe and Pitbull. In fact, he engineered Fat Joe's single "Lean Back" (produced by Storch), which was certified platinum. Not bad for a guy who started as a

Twerking down with “Bounce It Biggity Bounce It.” HaSizzle continues to record hit songs and R&B

bounce mixes. He is very open to working with New Styles of music.

Undisputed Hustlers

In his debut EP, A Conversation at the Witz Inn, Nolfris “Slim KuttaR” Williams incorporates a diverse mix including jazz, hip-hop, and classical in each of his songs. Slim KuttaR says his music “is about having fun and enjoying life no matter where you are on the journey.”

Born in Birmingham, Alabama and raised in New Orleans, Slim KuttaR developed an eclectic range of musical tastes from the hard driving vocal styling of the gospel quartet to the syncopated rhythms of the second line. He draws upon this influence in both his own music, and his very formidable work behind the scenes with other artists.

Aside from his passion for music, Slim KuttaR is a lover of history and basketball. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a minor in History from Green Mountain College. He also played professional basketball in North America and Europe.

In early 2010, Deborah Evans and Deborah Mannis-Gardner met face-to-face after years of working together via email and telephone.

They connected instantly. Both Deborahs have a similar vision, work ethic, knowledge and experience, and together

they knew that a publishing and clearance partnership would not only serve their individual music companies well, but would also be a first rate resource for songwriters who needed solid, hands on, proactive administration, promotion, and clearances.

DMG and Della Music Publishing jointly administer the catalogues of Reggie Noble, Erick Sermon and numerous other writers. Additionally, Della Music often assists with music clearance projects which are the focus of DMG Clearances Inc.

Together they reach out almost daily to new songwriters, as well as, seasoned composers who are looking for a

smaller independent publisher whose primary focus is on the songwriter – not on the income that the songwriter brings in.

The songwriter is our #1 priority and every songwriter receives our full attention, no matter what the issue.
