Algorithm: A step-by-step problem-solving procedure,

Riddim: a rhythm pattern, basically consisting of a drum pattern
and a prominent bass line


This site is designed to share the research I've done tracking riddims on thousands of Jamaican songs dating from the early sixties to the mid-eighties. The project began in preparation for my radio show on WHPK, formerly called Iman Selection. You can hear episodes by going to my podcast or checking out the links on the left for my YouTube, Mixcloud and Soundcloud pages. You can listen online, download a mix, or subscribe to the feed with your favorite podcatcher so you can listen on the go.
