He is the owner of Rodgers Studio,and A-Beat C Productions co-founded with Alberto Contini. Considered by many to be the "Godfather of Eurobeat", he has written and produced songs for J-pop artists such as Namie Amuro, V6 and MAX, which helped introduce some Japanese music fans to the electronic music genre known as Eurobeat. He has produced countless works for the Super Eurobeat series, the world's longest-running series of dance music compilation albums, since its earliest issues.
