About Magnet Records

History

Founded in 1971 by The late Rupert A Coke and operating from Stoke Newington London, Magnet Records quickly developed a market presence with artists such as the late Gene Rondo, Dennis Brown, John Holt and Keith Hudson. Other artists included Dennis Alcapone and Derrick Morgan.

The Magnet Records website is re-launching with a selection of MP3 for downloading from this catalogue and all future release’s will be made available in this format from this site and other popular download sites.

The site will be updated regularly, so be sure to visit us from time to time to see what’s new.

Magnet Records is fully dedicated to expanding the world of UK Reggae, aiming to bring a bit of the old and a bit of the new to you, the followers of UK REGGAE MUSIC.

Our Foundation and Goal

Our History

With the advent of the Digital world MAGNET RECORDS RECOGNIZED THE DIFFICULTIES small indenpendant labels face, WITH REGARDS TO ACCESSIBILITY OF GOOD
vinyl distribution & outlets.

HOWEVER UK REGGAE MUSIC HAS STILL MANAGED TO SELL ITSELF, DUE MAINLY TO airplay from the COMMUNITY & internet RADIO STATIONS.

THIS IN TURN, HAS CREATED A NEW BREED OF REGGAE CONNOISSEUR, EAGER TO
DELVE BACK IN TIME, TRYING TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE EARLY ORIGINS AND CULTURE OF uk REGGAE MUSIC.

Stoke Newington London

Magnet Records would like to take this opportunity to say “Big Up” and “Nuff Respect” to all
the early UK pioneers, Community  & internet radio station’s, DJ’s and Sound Systems.

Much care and effort has been made in the design of the Magnet Records website to ensure ease
of use. All MP3’s on this site are from the official Magnet Records catalogue and it’s affiliated labels: Faith & Trans
Universal.

NOTE: Some of the MP3’s have been copied from the old original vinyl.
