Konshens has added to his growing list of accomplishments. The stellar dancehall act has landed the very first theme song for the epic sound system competition World Clash R.E.S.E.T. 2, scheduled for Saturday, October 12, in Queens, New York, at the Amazura event hall.
Konshens' rising dancehall hit, Any Weh, was selected as the clash's official theme song by the event's promoters Irish and Chin because of its hard-hitting nature.
"From the first time I heard Any Weh, the energy from the song and the lyrical content captivated me," said Garfield 'Chin' Bourne of Irish and Chin.
"The song screams I am brave, bold, and bad, which mirrors the attitudes of sounds and selectors when clashing."
"From a youth, we follow World Clash and the global impact it has on sound system and the sport of sound clash. Never have I heard Irish and Chin pick a theme song for World Clash, so I am honoured for my song, Any Weh, to be chosen. It's a good feeling and achievement," said Konshens.
World Clash R.E.S.E.T. will feature a mix of notorious clash and juggling sounds, including Fire Links, King Addies, Soul Supreme, Mighty Crown, LP, Jazzy T/Renaissance, and Sky Juice/Metromedia.
Topping off this intense line-up is the supercharged Any Weh, which Irish and Chin will incorporate into all of World Clash R.E.S.E.T. 2's official advertising and promotions.
Moving forward, Irish and Chin will identify a song each year to be used as the action-packed World Clash's theme.
The World Clash brand has been in existence since the late '90s. Promoters Irish and Chin have prided themselves on producing a high-calibre sound system competition recognised throughout the world. A central point of importance for Irish and Chin is innovation.
Notably, World Clash became the first sound clash packaged and promoted like a stage show, the first clash to market selectors and sounds as celebrities, and the first clash to achieve international media presence and visibility. Now, World Clash is the first to peg an official theme song.
Konshens is fresh on the heels of five performances during the course of Labor Day festivities in New York, a record-breaking performance in Uganda, Africa, before 60,000 raving fans; and a successful European tour. The dancehall celebrity continues to amuse fans with monster hits like Gyal a Bubble, Do Sumn, Realest, and Good Girl Gone Bad.
