The Global Sound Clash Event Prior to Reggae Sumfest’s Main Nights features Selectors from Around the World in an exciting GLOBAL SOUND CLASH Competition!
Jamaica’s rich music and culture which have impacted and infused itself throughout the world also produced the sound clash, which is one of the many musical standouts which originated in the country that birthed reggae and dancehall. More classically defined, a sound clash is a DJ battle (mostly in reggae and dancehall) where two collective sounds – consisting of one or more selectors (or DJs as they say in the U.S.) – go tune for tune. They often use custom remixes (aka dub plates) featuring drops from marquee artists to win over the audience.
Now, on Thursday, July 18th, Jamaica’s largest music festival Reggae Sumfest brings back the Global Sound Clash again this year to Pier 1. At 8pm the nail-biting competition begins between leading sounds from Jamaica, Japan, Africa and Canada – Ricky Trooper, Pink Panther, Warrior Sound, Yard Beat and King Turbo.
