Reddit and Not Reddit

What's the easiest way to achieve this Reddit-lite interface?

I need to create a website that works as follows:
-- Largely a single page interface
-- Users can post sound or video clips which will play in the front page without having to click through (as they do in music/video subreddits).
-- Users can upvote and downvote posts
-- Posts are tagged, and can be filtered by tags. IE, you can choose to view only posts tagged 'foo', or 'foo and bar but not baz'
-- This allows users to create their own charts, as well as offering built-in charts for certain tag combinations
-- Doesn't have the nerdy Reddit look and feel
Basically, this is an audio/video website based fundamentally around charts.
I've looked at the Reddit software but it seems too top-heavy for what I need, and I don't really like the subreddit format -- tagging serves my purposes much better (I can see how you could MacGuyver this but it seems a bit of a hack).
I'm wondering if there's anything else out there that would let me protoype this easily?
