The regular column Inna Di Barbershop by author Markus Klein caused some controversy even before the official street date. Subscribers usually receive the new issue some days in advance.
The article, titled The 4000 Euro Super-Dub, addressed this summer's hot topic in the Sound System scene, when Super Cat gave permission to a very few european sounds to pay big money for a Dubplate. Sentinel Sound from Stuttgart, Germany published an open letter via their Facebook page to express a big disappointment about the column.
As conclusion Sentinel announced the end of their collaboration with Riddim magazine. For the last 17 issues Sentinel Sound provided an audio mix for the Riddim Check review column.
