Channel One, Metalheadz, Skream and Benga limber up for RBMA’s latest Culture Clash
Red Bull Music Academy presents the latest in its series of Culture Clash events on Thursday 14 October.
The clash takes place at The Roundhouse in London, a suitably epic and august venue for an evening of gladiatorial combat that will see the likes of Goldie, Skream, Andy C, Benga and Joker all vying for soundboy supremacy.
To be precise, there are four contending soundsystems taking part. First up is reigning Culture Clash champion Goldie and his seasoned Metalheadz crew. The man with the smile that could crush steel is joined by Andy C, Shy FX, Storm and MC GQ, and it’d take a brave gambler indeed to bet against this lot overpowering the opposition yet again.
The even more experienced Channel One Soundsystem will be appearing in full effect, with Mikey Dread and Ras Kayleb leading the charge. Carnival fixtures since time immemorial, Channel One’s riddims might be slower than those of their junglist counterparts, but they’re no less heavy. They’ll be on hand to remind us that true roots reggae packs a low-end punch like no other.
Of course not all combatants are such veterans: the younger generation is represented by Skream and Benga, who it’s safe to say will be completely unphased by the reputations of their elders. The Croydon dubsteppers have smashed party after party over the past half-decade with their unashamedly full-frontal sound, and for this special night they’ll be joined by Joker, MC Nomad and their Magnetic Man compadre Artwork. Metalheadz watch out.
Last but by no means least is the venerable Soul Jazz Soundsystem, emissaries from the record label of the same name, and master selectors of gritty funk, rocksteady, dancehall, dubstep and beyond. They might seem like the underdogs, but with good taste and DJ chops to spare, they might just pull it off…
The night runs 7pm-3am, and it’s going to be very loud indeed. Find more information and tickets here.

1982.. I was 9 but my Dad had this on rotation. I was lucky enough to have the 45 passed down to me. This was a magical time when it was very cool to be into Funk.
I remember Aretha Franklins 'Jump to It' would be played alot around this same time. MUSIC!
Another great.. Out to all those Torontonians who grew up listening to 94 WBLK out of Buffalo. Those were the days before they blocked the signal! PAUSE TAPES BABY.
Stumbled onto this.. Great memories. Very big record with that heavy electro influence. Out to my old east scarborough crew. Big up Trevor Welshman wherever your at.. Learned alot from you about the art of dj'ing. The 12 inch for this had some great dubs as well.
