Biography[edit]

Born in London to recent Jamaican immigrants,[1] Bradley discovered Jamaican music during his teenage years, while going out in the North London-based sound systems and created his own, named "Dark Star System", in the late 1960s.

He worked on several magazines in their early years, including Q and Empire for Emap Metro, and launched Big! for the same company. Together with Mat Snow, he developed Maxim for Dennis Publishing, and worked on the launch of Encore magazine in 1994 for Haymarket. He then joined GQ as an editor, moving in 2003 to US company Rodale as an editorial consultant on Men's Health and Runner's World magazines.

Bradley is currently a freelance journalist and consultant for many titles, and is developing a series of international city running guides and health and fitness books. He is also working on a biography of George Clinton, that sets P-Funk in its correct socio-political context. His journalistic contributions have been published in NME, Black Music Magazine, The Guardian and Mojo, among other publications. Bradley's Bass Culture (2001) is considered as one of the most important books on reggae music,[1] and he was associate producer of the BBC2 series Reggae: The Story of Jamaican Music. Lloyd Bradley is also a classically trained chef.
