Guinness Sounds Of Greatness Final: Trooper vs. Bass Odyssey

posted on January 26th, 2010 by in Audio, Video

We at seen. are not really those sound clash kind of people. We prefer easy juggling session vibes and street dance hypeness.

However, the sound clash thing is a major part of the reggae culture and has without a doubt pushed things forward especially in the early years of the music. And even though – in our opinion – clashes have been more entertaining and more fun to listen to back in the days (note: old people phrase), it´s good to see big corporations like Guinness investing in events like the “Guinness Sounds Of Greatness” series to keep the clash culture alife today.

Watch the full length hi-quality video of Bass Odyssey crushing Sound Trooper in the finals of Guinness Sounds Of Greatness 2009 early this year above but don´t forget to skip those boring interviews and interludes. (via Burden Clothing)

    No love for clash????? What kind of culture vultures are you???? That's the most BESTEST part of reggae!!! Clash culture existed before REGGAE did (see Duke Reid vs. Coxsone Dodd)…

    Step up your cassette game! Check for Killamanjaro, Silverhawk, King Addies, Saxon, Stone Love etc etc etc DAMN yall disappointed me, how can you rate 'street dance hypeness' over the ORIGINAL sound system format! GEEZ!

    You got us wrong, Spliffington. We definitely got love for clash – at least for clash back in the days that you´re mentioning. It´s just like today, we prefer going to a nice little session or a dance to enjoy ourselves rather than standing in a crowd of reggae nerds (that´s what clash usually means at least in Europe) that study the music more than they feel it.

    it's good as long as they dont have rules and limitations that actually kill the feel of a serious clash.
