Music Like Dirt is our classic reggae music catalogue and was established in 1986.
From 1983-87 Patrick was label manager at the legendary British reggae record label, Trojan Records compiling and releasing a clutch of best-selling retrospective artist and compilation albums featuring Trojan’s classic reggae music from the 60’s and 70’s, which was the catalyst for the formation of Music Like Dirt.
Recently Patrick felt the time was right to move on and, after a long search to find the right music publisher to continue representing the fantastic artists and writers music in the catalogues, found Sentric Music and sold Big World Publishing and Music Like Dirt to them in November 2019.
Patrick will be working with Sentric Music on a consultancy basis for 6 months to help with the smooth integration of the catalogues.
