The finals of the world-renown World Clash competition, organised by Irish and Chin happened last night in London, with Code Red the only sound from Jamaica coming out on top.
Leading up to the event, BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Seanie B predicted that Code Red would walk away with the title, and it indeed came to pass.
Other sounds that were competing in the finals included Stereo 5 (United States); Rodem Cyclone (Japan), Klymaxx (Canada); Observer Supa Powa (United Kingdom); Warrior Sound (Germany); Dynamq (United States); Empire Sound (United Kingdom); and Mystic, from Canada.
Participants last night had to match lyrical creativity, display their on-stage dynamism and dubplate prowess in order to walk away with the coveted world clash title and a trophy!
The competition also honoured sound system selectors who left an indelible mark in the industry. The honourees included: Bass Odyssey (post-humously Squingy), Pink Panther, Tony Matterhorn, Ricky Trooper, Mighty Crown and David Rodigan.

World Clash Competition is the industry’s premier soundclash. Launched by Bourne in 1998, World Clash elevated the standard and format of Jamaica’s beloved competitive art form.
