Sam Gilly & his House Of Riddim made some serious serious waves in the summer
of 2004 with their excellent "Sam Gilly's House Of Riddim Presents"
compilation and it's follow-up to that excellent set of tunes featuring a variety of vocalists at the
end of 2005 "House Of Riddim ~ Chapter II" as well as
various collaborations of which several were with fellow countrymen Bassrunner Productions and also laying Das
Vibes Productions' 'Living Man'-riddim. The House Of Riddim returned as backing and production
outfit for a next various artists album, their first one riddim album "Street Riddim", presenting tunes over a
wicked one-drop in November 2007. And now Sam Gilly, Manfred Scheer, Herb Pirker and Parvez Syed present a House Of Riddim backed and
produced German language various artists album "Für Alle".|
Former Cheesevibes (which was formed together with his brother - beachvolleyball professional - Peter 'Biggatree' Gartmayr) member Tombo delivers his message to all "An Alle" over a horn driven laid back roots riddim, followed by the great "Politrix" by Swiss singjay Dennis Furrer a.k.a. Phenomden and D-Flame, who expresses still being in love with Jamaica in the smashing "Immer Noch" over a great upful riddim. "Regeln" is a great anti-establishment tune by Austria's former hip hop, now dancehall crew Texta of DJ Dan, Flip, Huckey, Laima & Skero and then Markus Pigler a.k.a. Thai Stylee a.k.a. 'Di 3rd Eye Sprayer' impresses heavily with his "Mann Oh Mann" that is even topped by the great wanna-be-bad-boys-diss "Grosse Fresse" in which Germany's Münsteraner dancehall don Dr. Ring Ding tells them to keep their big mouth shut.
In Germany Cappuccino is best known as member of Jazzkantine but he already has 4 solo albums under his belt and contributes the sweet lovers tune "Ewigkeit" here, before Paco Mendoza a.k.a. El Criminal - one half of Caramelo Criminal, the duo with his brother Don Caramelo with whom together he is also a member of Raggabund - delivers his beautiful "Krieger Der Sonne" and Nattyflo is absolutely phenomenal on "Myspace" that benefits of a brilliant riddim as much as of his story about being part of a movement in the real world. The to me unknown Rebel One contributes the average "Nimm Mich Mit" followed by Bounty Chiller of Austria's Kuhbus Soundsystem (together with Skarlatan) with his take on House Of Riddim's 'Conquerer'-riddim "Vasink Im Saund" and Ganjaman with his superb anti-Babylon statement "Ich Freu Mich".
Dancehall's German/Austrian powerpair Mono & Nikitaman over a very nice roots riddim that incorporates dancehall deliver the message to look beyond gals and ganja tunes to the massive in "Es Kommt Anders" followed by the cry for peace "Friedenslied" by Mellow Mark & German of Turkish decent Volkan Aykac a.k.a. Volkanikman a.k.a. Dr. Simpelyrix. The last tune on this excellent House Of Riddim backed and produced album comes courtesy of one of Germany's deepest voices, the underrated and underrecorded Benjie with the extremely catchy "Dance", an album that every roots reggae aficionado should hear even if he doesn't understand one single word of the German lyrics. A megamix of this "Für Alle" album can be heard here.
