The Canada Rumble, organized by Irish and Chin Productions, is set for January 23, 2016, at La Victoria Banquet Hall and Convention Centre in Toronto. The event is meant to provide promising sound systems an opportunity to compete on a national platform, while attracting International visibility.
Garfield ‘Chin’ Bourne, in an interview with the Jamaica Observer, spoke about the decision to stage the follow-up ‘clash’ in Canada. “The key factor is to give talented Canadian ‘sounds’ a chance to have international exposure versus the regional visibility, which they have been limited to over the years. Canada is a big clash market with lots of selectors and sound system celebrities. However, the rest of the world is often amiss of their talent,” he said.
The competitors for Canada Rumble are Don Rankin, King Turbo, Outcast, Stepa Choice, Little Thunder, Brimstone Gold and Klymaxx.
[. . .] The 2015 US Rumble took place in October at Club Amazura in Queens, New York. It was won by Florida’s Innocent Sound System, with selectors Dave ‘Dapper Lee-Thal’ White and Juxy Fyah.
