1xtra Best Of British Soundclash Roundup
Posted by Adam on 20th February 2015
Last night saw an epic battle between 3Beat, Black Butter Records, Hospital Records & MTA Records in the 1Xtra Best Of British Soundclash.
There were dubs galore from MTA, Black Butter pulled out hit after hit, Hospital represented Drum & Bass (and true independent labels) to the fullest & 3Beat were average if I’m honest, although I do feel that they deserved a bonus point for bringing an actual Jamaican to the clash.
The rounds went as followed: (I had Hospital down as the winner for every round)
ROUND 1: Team Anthems
ROUND 2: Bootlegs
ROUND 3: International Round
ROUND 4: Live Mix
ROUND 5: Dub For Dub
There was controversy when MTA didn’t actually do any mixing/beat matching in the Live Mix Round and when MTA, Black Butter and 3Beat dropped more than one tune in the dub for dub round (standard soundclash rules say that each team plays one dub for the dub for dub round) but nothing really came of it aside from a lot of moaning on twitter (myself included).
I won’t tell you who wins here just in case you don’t already know so I strongly suggest you go over to 1xtra and listen to it now.
