Riddim-ID is a database that contains information about riddims, tunes, artists, producers and labels. The database is regularly updated and carefully checked across multiple sources. This takes a lot of time, but as a result the information is as consistent and complete as possible.

Main sources

Most of the data in this database was initially collected by Pupa Vlado. He did his pioneering work in a time when this was not an easy task, because there was virtually no information about riddims available on the internet. After collecting information about 34.000 tunes Pupa Vlado stopped in 2003. He decided to share his work with the community.

Lee Scratch Perry

Another important source is the Camphouse Riddim Index compiled by Robert Camphouse. In here he collected information on another 12.000 tunes. In addition to that he also compiled the Camphouse Artist Profile containing extensive information about 2500 artists and producers. He updated his collection until 2010. Robert Camphouse decided to share his work with the community as well.
