Welcome to Echoes!

We are the UK’s foremost monthly magazine covering soul, jazz, reggae, R&B and hip-hop.
What’s more, we’ve been here since January 1976 – not even the COVID pandemic could stop us!

Our print platform remains our flagship enterprise – you can buy it in most good newsagents or right here on this site and have it delivered direct to your door – but we also publish a fine online, flippy version for those who need instant digital access.

Do join us for the most expert and opinionated coverage of black music old and new you can find anywhere.
