Disco Rick (Rick Taulor)
Ricky Taylor a.k.a. Disco Rick is a true music industry giant. His multifaceted talents allow him to be equally at home whether he is in the studio or on stage. Ricky's studio talents range from writing, producing, recording and mixing to operations manager for Audio Vision Studios. He oversees all studio bookings and equipment purchasing. Recent projects that Ricky has been involved read like a who's who of the Hip Hop World, including Bone Thugs N Harmony, (as well as Lazyie Bone and Krazie Bone individually), Chaka Khan, Ice-T, Bobby Brown, Fat Joe and many others.
Many studio clients remember Disco Rick from "back in the day" when his main focus was on performing. Disco Rick's deep seated rap career helped guide many South Florida record companies including the legendary TK Records (KC & The Sunshine Band and Betty Wright), Joey Boy Records, Luke Records (2 Live Crew, H-Town and Poison Clan) and Vision Records (the sister company of Audio Vision Studios). Disco Rick (and The Dogs) has released nearly a dozen CD's, LP's and compilations. He continues to be in constant demand to perform his classic hit records including "Wiggle Wiggle", "Ya Mama's On Crack Rock" and "Take It Off".
During the TK years, Rick's influence and evolvement in the success of worldwide hits like "Sally That Girl" by the Gucci Crew", "Rock Your Baby" by George McCrae and Anita Ward's "Ring My Bell" should not go unnoticed. Black radio was readily playing Disco Rick's hits, and his relationship with top radio programmers continues today.
