Paul Rodriguez (2)

UK trumpeter, saxophonist, bass guitarist, songwriter. Owner of Paul Rodriguez Music Ltd, passed away in 2013.

In its early years, his company grew through the acquisition of various jazz (Humphrey Lyttleton, Chris Barber, Kenny Ball) and reggae (Yabby U, Jackie Mittoo, Errol Dunkley) catalogues, followed by the catalogues of the various contributing members of the renaissance collective, the Consort of Musicke, most notably Anthony Rooley.

The early nineties brought with it harder dance music. Paul, always a lover of all things fringe, leapt to sign up the leaders of the emerging drum and bass, hardcore and hard dance scenes, Hixxy, Dougal, Billy Daniel Bunter, Force and (Darren) Styles, Mark Breeze, Twisted Individual, Zen, the vast majority of whom are still active and still represented by us today.

The early noughties brought charting successes as dance acts such as Ultrabeat, Kelly Llorenna, and Flip & Fill mined the ‘90s hardcore song repertoire and made them over into commercial pop/dance hits. Meanwhile, the drum and bass catalogues of Twisted Individual, Zen, and later signings Generation Dub (now better known separately as Original Sin and Sub Zero), Taxman, Jaydan, and Supreme Being, continued to perform strongly. Darren Styles, always at the forefront of the hardcore scene, has since managed to successfully straddle the hardcore and commercial dance markets, with strongly performing albums on All Around The World.
