Our very own Dj Shortkut will be rocking side by side with his Triple Threat partners Dj Apollo & Vinroc at the Redbull 2014 Culture Clash in San Francisco. They will be taking on other notable Bay Area soundsystem collectives: the House Music massive Dirty Bird, the Nu-Cumbia collective Tormenta Tropical, & the local Reggae Selector legends Dub Mission. All happening at The Regency Ballroom. Here’s a description of what’s going down:
“Modeled after a Jamaican sound clash, Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash will stay true to traditional standards and require each collective to bring in their own sound system and set up shop on one of four individual stages. It’s not a DJ battle or band competition, it’s about who has the heaviest sound, the best tunes, the most exclusive dubplates and greatest special guests. It is of course peaceful, but it’s also a clash; so calling out opponents, mockeries, diss records and counteractions are explicitly encouraged. It’s all musical, and it’s all love: once the clash is over, this will have been a great celebration of Bay Area music culture, with different eras and genres all united under one roof.
The night will be recorded by RBMA Radio for your future listening pleasure.
How it works
ROUND ONE – TEMPERATURE’S RISING
The collectives have free choice on what to play, taking the crowd’s temperature and setting the tone for their stage.
ROUND TWO – THE SELECTOR
Each collective is judged on tune selection and presentation.
ROUND THREE – SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY
Crews twist it, playing an opponents style of music. Big test. The mighty may fall.
ROUND FOUR – THE DECIDER
Clashing crews play their biggest and baddest tunes; dubplates, specials and exclusive live performances.”
Bay Area, go out and support your favorite sound system to make sure they win…..we’re biased; we’re rooting for our Triple Threat brothers. This is something you don’t want to miss!!!
