New York, New York -- February 2018 -- Sound clash's premiere competition is celebrating 20 years at the top! The flagship Irish and Chin event has thrived as the super bowl of sound clash, exposing a vibrant element of Jamaican music and culture to audiences across the world since it's launch in 1998.
Starting with humble beginnings as a platform to revive New York's fading clash scene, the epic event grew in demand and catapulted to maximum visibility, scoring clashes in Jamaica, Canada and Antigua. Grabbing the attention of clash fans and dancehall lovers world wide, World Clash continues to make an indelible mark on the masses.
New York, New York — November 2017 (Irish and Chin) — 2x World Clash winners King Turbo are musically armed, dangerous and dead set on a winning streak, as they ready to compete for a second time in "Sound Clash at Sea" -- the annual sound clash aboard the "Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise." Winning Irish and Chin's World Clash grants the Canadian sound a chance to compete in the popular "Sound Clash at Sea," where they will face off against Mighty Crown, Tony Matterhorn and David Rodigan.
Destine Media (New York, NY) October 19, 2017. Despite not winning the title of World Clash winners, Platinum Kids walk away as the game changers of Sound Clash history.
Entering US Rumble over a year ago, Platinum Kids never clashed against any major sounds from the sound clash arena. The U.S. Rumble stage was their first invitation to clash against seasoned clash sounds. Therefore, to many Platinum Kids was considered the underdog and would never make it to the World Clash stage.
