About Reggaemani

A passion for reggae music

Reggaemani is a music blog dedicated to reggae music and culture. It covers almost all aspects of reggae and its many subgenres, including ska, rocksteady, early reggae, roots, dub, dancehall and ragga. Reggaemani aims to broaden musical horizons and cover new and veteran artists and groups from all around the world.

The site is based on interviews, columns, news and reviews of records, books and documentaries. Interviews range from widely known singers like Stephen Marley, Maxi Priest and Busy Signal, to lesser known artists like Hezron and Kiddus I. Covered are also the people behind the scenes – the producers and label owners.

Reggaemani was founded in 2009 by Erik Magni, a now 36 year old freelance writer and communications professional living in Stockholm, Sweden. Erik Magni is Reggaemani’s editor and sole writer, and he has been a music addict and record collector for more than two decades. Today Erik also works closely with United Reggae, and he has previously been featured in Irie Up, Reggae Galore (Swedish), Svenska Reggaebloggen (Swedish), Rebel Music (Swedish) and Skivkoll (Swedish).

Many thanks to Beth Lesser for letting Reggaemani use her great photo, to artist Chris Lister for the portrait of Dennis Brown, to Henrik Lindqvist for helping out with design issues and last but not least Anna Magni for her continuous support, great ideas and sporadic proof reading.
