Danny Dollars

As he worked out the Caroline dispute, Dominguez finalized a deal with Studio Distribution in November 2002. Last fall, Counterflow quietly began issuing twelve-inch singles again. In addition to Plant Life's "Appreciate," there was "Bob James Boogie" by Fantab, a new group led by local producer Tony Galvin (Trick Daddy). There was also Induce's "Retribution." My Mother and Father Were Astronauts, the debut album from the thoughtful and progressive Miami MC Seven Star, is dropping at the end of the month, followed by records from Dynas, Dave Ghetto, and others.

"The two biggest differences are experience and resources," says Dominguez. "I have way more experience and I have a shitload more resources available to me, and that changes how you view and handle things."

Dominguez's careful navigation of last year's controversies has given him depth and maturity, and their resolution has allowed the prodigy to dream big again. He eagerly talks up Plant Life, whose The Return of Jack Splashis scheduled to drop on October 5. He believes the band will bring his label international recognition that is long overdue. "That's going to be the first record by far," he says. "Plant Life, it's blowing up. We're making crazy moves. We're making crazy things happen."
