The late Raul A. Rodriguez was one of a group of legendary New York City Disco era DJs who not only spun at many local clubs, but also went on to remix Disco records.
Raul is most notable for his residency at New York-New York and Bonds International on Times Square and for his many classic remixes for Disconet including the highly sought after remix he did of Abba’s “Lay All Your Love On Me in 1980. He also produced such notable hits as Man Parrish’s “Hip Hop, Be Bop”.
Raul is perhaps best known for his work with the Sugarscoop group of labels (Sugarscoop, Disconet Program Service, & Importe/12), as well as producing his own electro versions of two club classics under the name C.O.D.
The first of these singles was a cover of the Gil Scott-Heron classic “In The Bottle”
Raul passed away from complications from a stroke on January 4, 2012.
