Roni started on the path of musical production when he was thrown out of school aged 16, but music had always been a part of his life. Roni was born and grew up at 'the top of the hill' a.k.a. St Andrew's, Bristol.
From the bottom of this hill came the sounds of the 70s blues parties and sound-systems - the beat infected Roni's bones. So, after being expelled he walked straight into Sefton Park basement project, which allowed youngsters to try their hand on the decks, the mixing desk, drum machines and samplers. Here he learned the basics and his brother's comprehensive collection of Studio One records gave him material to work with. After setting up a home studio and buying a sampler, a musical master of production was in the making.
Meeting up with Krust in the early 90s brought two musically compatible minds together, they faced the same dilemma of having no outlet for their music they put their energies into their own label. Roni set up WTP (Where's The Party At?). From that Full Cycle and Dope Dragon were established in 1993.
Bryan Gee was an early admirer, holding on to their tapes whilst at work at Rhythm King Records. When in 1994 he set up V Recordings. Krust, Roni and Die providing the two first releases.
