Atlantic Records took note and this week announced a new artist development partnership and joint venture deal with Assemble Sound.

âThis is not the first major national record company to take an interest in the artists of Assemble Sound and Assemble Sound. They’ve developed a very good reputation for the music that comes out of it, for the integrity with which they approach the music, âGraff said.
While not everyone needs a reminder of Detroit’s rich musical heritage, Graff said Assemble Sound and the work he does is a great addition.

Motown is doing it almost minute by minute, it sure never hurts to have something else that Said “Hey, look at this really cool thing coming out of Detroit and you’re gonna hear a lot more of it,” “Graff said.
