After the success of the 'Burning'-riddim built by House Of Riddim's Sam Gilly for fellow Austrians Bassrunner Productions in July 2005, and Bassrunner's dancehall/reggaetón mixtape "The Way U Move" featuring Ill Inspecta & El Condorsíto, the next collaboration between Bassrunner Soundtribe selector Loopus and Sam Gilly results in the impressive roots riddim 'Tragedy'. The tune giving the riddim its name, Lukie D's beautiful reality song "Tragedy" could be heard first on House Of Riddim's end of 2005 released various artist compilation "House Of Riddim ~ Chapter II" and is a real scorcher, released on 7" with Germaican Scout Ill Inspecta's very nice girls tune "Cyaan Define" on the other side of it. Cali P., the Guadeloupe born dancehall singjay living in Switzerland, contributes the very fine ganja tune "High Grade" with Bassrunner's own MC El Condorsíto in fine form on the flipside with "Mis Deseos" My Desires. The combination "No Compromises" is an excellent tune with Jahmali's smooth singing counteracted by D-Flame's deep bass deejaying in German and Detecta (who has been working more often alongside D-Flame) with the immediately recognizable Gambia born German singjay on the rise Rebellion delivering his strong "Bear Witness" on the other side of the 7". Spectacular, the Kingston JA born singjay, seems to be very much at ease riding riddims from various European (German speaking) producers as his debut album "Find Yourself" showed and "Can't Hold Us Down", his take on the 'Tragedy'-riddim is no exception, backed with Thaistylee's (and when you hear this tune, you're not going to believe that it's the in Baden near Vienna, Austria born Markus Pigler) "Walk & Talk" that could easily be mistaken for a Bounty Killer tune. Germany's extremely talented and both in the reggae and the mainstream-pop scene well established Nosliw contributes the only tune in German on this riddim, the superb positive message "Anfangen", with the great clean "Tragedy Riddim (Version)" of yet another great European built and produced roots riddim on the flipside. This is a must have selection for every soundsystem selector and other 7"-buyers as soon as it hits the streets next month.
