During its early history, Trojan launched a series of subsidiary labels, with many catering specifically to the outputs of individual producers.
Among these were British-based music-makers such as Robert 'Dandy' Thompson, Joe Mansano and Lambert Briscoe along with such esteemed Jamaican operators as Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Edward 'Bunny' Lee, Harry Johnson, Vincent Chin, Rupie Edwards, Clancy Eccles. Alvin Ranglin and Arthur 'Duke' Reid - the man whose nickname was adopted by Trojan's founders for their new company's name.
In addition, Trojan maintained existing Island-launched producer-based subsidiaries, such as Coxsone, Studio One and Amalgamated, while also creating numerous new imprints, such as Blue Cat, Big Shot and Duke, all of which highlighted work from a variety of sources.
As the Seventies progressed, the multi-label philosophy changed and by the middle of the decade, just a handful of subsidiaries remained.
By the close of the decade, only the Trojan and Attack imprints remained, with the latter finally phased out by the close of the Twentieth Century. For the past decade, Trojan has stood alone, but after absorbing other major Jamaican music catalogues in RAS and Creole can now not only boast a body of works that is second to none, but also lay claim to being the oldest Reggae music label outside Jamaica.
