Earlier this month saw the launch of a brand new online reggae music video giant: RiddimTube.com.
Online PR News – 14-July-2010 – – It appears to be a promising new resource for reggae music fans all over the world to visit online. The front page is littered with the latest and greatest reggae music selections from Bob Marley and the Wailers to Vybz Kartel and Jah Cure. With a sleek minimalist web 2.0 design, simplistic navigation links, cool colour scheme and deadly accurate search engine feature, it leaves similar ageing reggae music websites redundant. Although lacking in function at present we were assured by the RiddimTube.com Team that the website was all about the music and not the revenue. They wanted to achieve this by having a minimum level of advertisements at any one time, high quality video selection and a well moderated database.
After watching and enjoying a dozen or so music videos, including some great selections that reminded me of my youth, it suddenly dawned on me... This has got to be the first reggae music video website I have visited where all of the music videos are 100% working. I hadn't come across a single dead link!
In an email exchange with the Riddimtube.com Team they informed me that even more features are going to be added in the near future including a forum for fans to share their playlists, discuss artists, news in the reggae and dancehall community and much more.
For the moment however the creators of this innovative new website are anchored in the task of keeping it about the content and are increasing the database of music videos on a daily basis.
