A soundclash is a musical competition where crew members from opposing sound systems pit their skills against each other. Read more from Wikipedia.
Soundclash is Jamaica’s musical sport that has gone global. Clashing is a celebration of reggae sound system culture and well, really a celebration of dubplates – exclusive recordings customized with the DJ/Sounds name mentioned in it.
“It’s really a glorified boxing match, where the public decides who wins. What makes it unique, and what makes you qualified to enter, is that you should have a number of customized recordings made especially for you by artists who are renowned, and those artists must call your name in the recording.”
~ David ‘RamJam’ Rodigan, the UK’s very own soundclash Godfather, a titan of clashing who’s been crushing opponents worldwide for close to 40 years.
A soundclash is one of the most unique live music events you’ll ever see!
This mix contains classics from some of the Studio One label’s biggest riddims.
