OLDIES SUNDAY: Killamanjaro Vs Bodyguard Sound Clash (1997)


While many are still feeling the vibes from last night’s staging of the Redbull Culture Clash, we’ve decided to take you all back a lil on Oldies Sunday! Today we go back to the year 1997 to check out one of Killamanjaro Sound System and Bodyguard Sounds‘ many sound clashes. Held in May Pen, Clarendon, Selectors Ricky Trooper (Killamanjaro) and Fire Links (Bodyguard) both went dub for dub, and song for song with their teams in a clash that is still a memorable one for many. With dubplates and songs from the likes of Monster Shack Crew, Bounty Killa, Sizzla, Beenie Man, and Shabba Ranks with plenty tough talk accompanying them, this clash was a hot one.

While many may have varied opinions on last night’s event, it’s always good to look back at some of the classic Sound Clashes. Let’s hope the floor is open to even more with huge sponsorships, and the rise of more Sound Systems. Check out the clash below and share with a friend.
