World Clash R.E.S.E.T. will be held in Queens, New York, on Saturday, October 12, 2013. The groundbreaking sound system competition boasts a diverse line-up, consisting of World Clash newcomers King Addies, Sky Juice/Metromedia, Soul Supreme and Jazzy T/Renaissance, along with returning sounds Mighty Crown, Fire Links and LP International.
R.E.S.E.T. promises fans a unique opportunity to witness juggling and clash sounds on a level playing field.
The event is promoters Irish and Chin's current iteration of the epic World Clash, allowing the admission of both 45s and dub plates into the clash. The promoters are convinced that if the industry continues to follow the trend of allowing only big dub sounds to participate, the diversity of sounds and interest of fans will further diminish.
Therefore, the competing sounds will need to exhibit talent, strong performances and superb musical selections and knowledge to win over fans in this diversified clash.
There are a lot of sub-plots to the clash. For the first time ever, three Brooklyn sounds - King Addies, Soul Supreme and LP International - will share the stage, fighting it out for 'King of New York' status in addition to the 'World Clash Champion' title.
Then juggling gurus Sky Juice/Metromedia and Jazzy T/Renaissance will have to bring their best game as they face off. Lastly, Mighty Crown and nemesis Fire Links go toe-to-toe.
The fates of the contending sounds lie in the hands of the thousands of clash fans slated to attend.
