Mighty Crown vs Metro Media vs Bass Odyssey—Some Selector Get Chuck Overboard

From the moment Jr. Gong first announced the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise, the concept was clearly a game-changer. Bringing an outernational audience of reggae lovers on board a luxury liner with a stellar lineup of reggae and dancehall talent made last year’s maiden voyage such a success that this year the cruise will set off from Miami to Jamaica and back not once but twice. As crucial as the main deck stage shows were, a huge part of the cruise’s unique vibes were the spontaneous sound system freestyle sessions. And this year the sound systems will play an even bigger role. Stone Love Movement and Jammy’$ Super Power will return again—Papa Jammy promises to bring a few surprise guests along this year. Shinehead will return as well, having made a powerful impression with Kingston 12 sound. The UK champion sound Saxon Studio will be making its first appearance on the cruise along with fast-chat DJ legend Papa Levi of “Mi God Mi King” fame. But perhaps the most exciting announcement is that this year’s cruise will include the first-ever Soundclash on the Sea. Which sounds will have to walk the plank? Details After The Jump…

This year’s clash competitors include the year-to-year sound Metro Media, the big bad Bass Odyssey, and the Far East Rulers Mighty Crown, who distinguished themselves on last year’s cruise with their innovative juggling tactics and overall energy and showmanship. All three sounds have history, as Metro Won the 2013 World Clash Reset, defeating Mighty Crown. Meanwhile Bass Odyssey overcame Metro Media in last year’s UK Clash. All three sounds are battle-tested juggling machines from different eras of the music, and all three are perfectly capable of sending the other two straight to Davy Jones’ Locker. Keep checking back with Boomshots this week for exclusive interviews with all three sound clash combatants this week.
