Meet the Team

The dedicated and riddim-loving team!

Dave

Riddimz Kalacta | Owner/Founder

I have always had a passion for the Jamaican riddim culture owing to the reggae influence around me growing up in the 90s. In 2008, during my MSc studies at university, I started a reggae archives blog on blogger.com. In 2012, it evolved into a website called RiddimzRagga, and then eventually in 2015 – Riddims World. I have been collecting riddims for years now, continually building up a database. Through this, the site is affiliated with hundreds of producers worldwide and we help spread their content out to the world – we will soon be THE ULTIMATE OFFICIAL RIDDIMS ONLY DISTRIBUTOR – by-passing all other current middle-men, in turn ensuring producers and artists earn what they truly deserve. Our database building is still on-going and may not be 100% accurate or complete, but we will eventually get there.
