Before the Cayre brothers launched Salsoul Records, they formed a company called Caytronics with various manufacturing and distribution operations in the music business. Henry Stone knew the Cayre bros since they were selling out auditoriums promoting high school Salsa concerts as teenagers. Miami was a small town and Stone was running his own hops with AM radio DJ Bob Green. From those early dancehall days through all parties building up multi-million dollar companies, Stone and the Cayres always stayed cool. In 1970, Cuco Sanchez and Los Panchos were two Caytronics records hitting the viable national market for Latin music in the U.S. Henry Stone’s Tone Distribution empire out of Hialeah, FL helped make it happen, and the Cayre brothers were the geniuses who knew it was a good idea.
From 1946 to 2014, Henry Stone ruled the Florida music industry with an iron fist, a brick of cash, and a warehouse full of vinyl. HSM is the last of over one hundred record labels he personally founded. This record label includes works from every decade in his sixty-five year career right up until today. Licensing available for film, samples, advertising, movies, video games, and more. Family owned and operated.
