Rugged Vinyl Records

Profile:
UK Hardcore, Drum and Bass, Jungle, and Tech Step label that started with underground white label releases in 1991, but officially became a label from 1992 with the release of the first S.M.F. EP. Soon after this they began using the Rugged catalogue numbers, when they released D.O.P.E.'s track 'When I Was Young'. From then on the label released its trademark Hardcore sound throughout 1993, and moved into 1994 embracing the emerging Intelligent / Jazzy sound. The Rugged Vinyl crew hosted a show on London's Don FM 1992-1994.

Question... Who ran, set up this legendary label? Was it Ray Stanley and Easy B? Or was it someone else! ***UPDATE*** Just had it confirmed that it is owned by these two guys D.O.P.E. ;)
