The Famed World Clash Culminates 20th Anniversary in Canada
For Caribbean entertainment specialists Irish and Chin, sound clash is a way of life. And with roots firmly planted in New York and Jamaica, they have thrived as a purveyor of Jamaica's indigenous sound clash culture for over two decades. Their love of sound clash dates back to the 80’s and 90’s, but it was when two fellow sound men joined forces in 1998 to revive New York’s then fading sound clash scene that World Clash was born - and is now celebrating it's 20th Anniversary all year long!
After a commemorative edition of the World Clash during Reggae Sumfest, the lights, dubs, excitement and action of sound clash are set to erupt in Toronto, Canada, at the Tibetan Cultural Center. The milestone anniversary of World Clash culminates with its official staging on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
"We are extremely proud that World Clash has stood the test of time," says Garfield "Chin" Bourne of Irish and Chin with a beaming smile. "Our goal is to have the World Clash brand and the phenomenal art of sound clash continue to wow international audiences for years to come." Bourne adds, "I am equally interested for new sound system stars to achieve notoriety and success, while new fans are introduced to the allure and thrill of sound clash."
Qualifying sound clashes held in several countries each year resulted in the participants who will face the two times World Clash champion King Turbo, proudly representing Canada. The buzzin' line up of sound systems and selectors who have gained notoriety while climbing the ranks in their respective countries includes DeeBuzz (Euro Rumble), 3 Sevens (Caribbean Rumble), Jah Works (Japan Rumble), Dynamq (U.S. Rumble), Empire Sound/Mour Dan (UK Rumble) and Mystic Sound (Canada Rumble). Despite Irish and Chin's emphasis on the authentic, in-person sound clash experience, the esteemed promoters are offering just 500 pay-per-view subscriptions for international fans. Contributing to the already impressive World Clash vibes is the Pre-party, which will be curated by premiere Canadian sound, Nitro.
Pay-per-view subscriptions, tickets for World Clash and the Pre-party are available exclusively on IRISHANDCHIN.com
