Greetings music lovers! Welcome to the first RIDDIM UP Contest. If you are a recording artiste in any form, this contest is for you.
Wait, what is a RIDDIM?
A Riddim is an instrumental and usually refers to a dancehall/Reggae beat, but any beat is a RIDDIM.
In Reggae/Dancehall culture a Riddim will have numerous artistes voicing their tunes on the same Riddim. Usually all the recorded tunes get released and DJs mix them back to back in what is known as juggling.
We are bringing the RIDDIM /Juggling culture to the blockchain and collaborating with tribes that have anything to do with music. We feel it is important for the communities to work together and build good will, unity and awareness in order to strengthen and build the tribes as well as the entire Steem ecosystem. Here are a list of the tribes that are involved in this contest.
Contest creator @ReggaeSteem
We thank these tribes for collaborating with us on this contest.
We plan to bring this contest outside of the blockchain in the near future in order to attract music lovers to the blockchain as having a steem account will be must to enter. Feel free to contact us in discord if you have any ideas.
