Sounds of Reggaemani

Three years ago I started to do my own mixtapes to promote some of my favorite tunes and riddims at the time. The first mixtape was a Summer Vibes, mixtape released in the early Swedish spring of 2010. As the title suggests it contained easy-going and peaceful sounds from the likes of Etana and Luciano. After Summer Vibes I did another 13 mixtapes with various directions.

Unfortunately time has not allowed me to do much on the mixtape front for almost two years. Writing about music for Reggaemani and United Reggae take the lot of my time these days.

When a new mixtape arrives I have no idea. I have plenty of music and ideas, but less time on my hands. So until then you might as well check out the sweet sounds of Reggaemani on either Soundcloud or Mixcloud.
