Mighty Crown cruising for a clash

During the 2015 Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise (WTJRC), which runs in two phases from November 30 – December 10, sound system Mighty Crown is gearing up for their return to clashing, The Far East Rulers are part of the WTJRC’s first ever sound clash, where they will compete against Metromedia and Bass Odyssey in 3 Di Hard Way.

It will be the first clash for Mighty Crown in over two years but not their first time on the cruise, as last year they played on the Norwegian Pearl during their WTJRC dedut, highlighting reggae’s worldwide impact and history with selections from past to present.

The sound system’s operator are delighted.

“It is a good look and a great feeling to be a part of the WTJRC first sound clash and possibly the first ever sound clash at sea,” said Simon ‘Masta Simon’ Tse of Mighty Crown. “Last year we were a part of history being on the first Jamrock Cruise and now we will engage in yet another historical event going down in the presence of cruisers from all over the world, fellow peers and members of the reggae music fraternity.”

“This is certainly a nice experience for Mighty Crown and all on board,” said Rohan ‘Ninja Crown’ Henry of Mighty Crown. “Sound clash is a critical addition to the themed cruise, as it will celebrate a key facet of reggae and dancehall culture. Moreover, it will introduce sound clash to the masses, some who have never attended a clash in their life.”

While the ‘year-to-year’ sound Metromedia is the current World Clash Champion, Bass Odyssey holds the UK Cup Clash title and Mighty Crown boasts numerous clash victories and titles on their resume. Metromedia overcame Mighty Crown to win the World Clash R.E.S.E.T. 2013, while Bass Odyssey defeated Metromedia to win UK Cup Clash 2014. With each sound having a point to prove, it’s safe a to expect a die hard battle.

Among the artistes on WTJRC 2015 are Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley, Stephen Marley, Tarrus Riley, Morgan Heritage, TOK, Bounty Killer and Tanya Stephens, along with King Jammy’s, Kingston 12 and Saxon sound systems.

“This will be a genuine ‘warrr’, with sparks flying,” declared Ninja Crown. “Based on the competitive history of Crown and Bass Odyssey, nuff sparks a fly inna dis here clash.”
