Syntax Creative is pleased to announce a new partnership with fellow San Diego-based enterprise M.A.N.D.A.T.E. Records Inc., a gospel and jazz record label with services including marketing, booking, management and concert promotion. M.A.N.D.A.T.E. released a pair of singles in June, “Long Time” by Dontae and “New Life” by Chris White, and will drop Reggie Codrington’s new album Against the Odds on Aug. 10. In doing so, the label aims to “make a necessary difference at the end,” which is the vision that forms its acronym.
