Tonos was just some man who come to Jamaica and license tracks from producers at Channel 1 (mainly the Hookims and Tasha) to release on their label in England. Tasha was a man who produce A LOT of music out of the love for it and his friendship with a lot of artists and musicians, but never have a mind to really deal with the work of releasing and distributing most of it himself. so you see on his own labels only a few releases (Tasha label, Under Pressure label) but nuff of his tune come out on other labels thru deals he made with people to release them (W&B, EAD, Tonos, Headphone, Sonic Sounds' Thunderbolt, Tachyon, TOE, Orbit, etc.). sometimes his name come on the label, sometimes people just present it as their own. many times when producers made a deal for a man to release their record in foreign, they never end up even seeing the record or what got printed on it.
