Riddim ( born riddim , from rhythm - “rhythm”) is an instrumental version of the song inherent in Jamaican music (most of them dancehall and reggae ) and other styles of Caribbean music. Riddim usually contains a drum part and a repeating bass part.
Riddims are inherent in such styles as reggae, dub , dancehall and reggaeton . The term “readme” is also used in some other musical styles, such as grunge . Most readdims have the most common names: “Nanny Goat”, “Diwali”, “Bookshelf”. Since the second half of the 1990s, new readdims are rare, and generally have a more Latin motif (in the manner of a reggaeton).
|Many readdims consist of only two notes, between which the bass twists. Since powerful bass beats are not very different from each other, pause, missed beat, and failure in uniform pulsation take on special significance. Therefore, the readme is a sequence of powerful tremors of the bass and short pauses, the Jamaican bass is not melodic, the bass sets the rhythm. [one]|
Readme also means recording several tracks of different artists under a common minus. As a rule, such tracks are combined into one track, or an album with a readme comes out.
