There are some weeks that I absolutely enjoy my Sound Chat show more than others. This week was definitely one of those weeks, the phone lines were on fire, it was my first time back in studio after my World Clash weekend; everyone had a lot to talk about. It was one of those weeks that listening to comments from clash fans were more entertaining than me actually conducting the show. Among all the callers that stood out were the calls from females discussing their experience at World Clash R.E.S.E.T.
It is a good feeling to know that females are now supporting our clash endeavors. I was impressed to hear them talk about the fact that some of the top sound systems in the industry were playing back songs and giving me ideas on how they think I should eliminate such behavior. Clash fans also got a chance to speak to Daimeon of Bass Odyssey about the controversy surrounding his Jimmy Cliff dubplate and his recent victory over Killamanjaro at World Clash R.E.S.E.T Jamaica.
Daimeon defended himself well and for the most part it was a very interesting conversation. Jimmy Spliff, a regular sound chat listener called in to defend his stance that Bass Odyssey's Jimmy Cliff dubplate is fake. He even to the extreme of emailing us an audio which was played live on the program with Bass Odyssey and Sentinel sound systems clashing in Germany where it was supposedly proven by Sentinel that Bass Odyssey's dubplate was fake. What a heat!!!
Freddy from Killamanjaro later phoned in to add more controversy to the program by stating that the only reason he was defeated by Bass Odyssey at World clash Jamaica was because Tony Matterhorn screwed up the voting/hosting. Freddy boldly stated that Bass Odyssey is a good sound but they don't have any tune to kill Killamanjaro. Freddy also said that what Matterhorn did at Pier One was merely to pay back Jaro for killing King Addies in 1995 and defeating him, Tony Matterhorn at World Clash New York in 2000.
I played the recording of an interview in which Tony Matterhorn explained in his own words what took place during his hosting of World Clash R.E.S.E.T Jamaica. He admitted that there was an incident but went on to say that he corrected it by giving both Bass Odyssey and Killamanjaro enough time to select their winning selection. Tony said that Freddy played the wrong tune and it didn't go over well with the crowd, therefore he should not be blamed for Jaro's defeat. After hearing both sides of the Jamaica World Clash saga sound chat listeners had mixed reviews. Some were in favour of Tony's action while others felt that Jaro got robbed. All in all, it was a great program; make sure you tune in next week.
