New York, New York -- October 2013 -- Sound clash fans from around the globe turned out in the droves to take in the famed sound system competition, World Clash R.E.S.E.T. 2, on Saturday, October 12, 2013.

The highly energized second installment of Irish and Chin’s R.E.S.E.T. shocked the massive audience, industry and social media, as the performances of juggling sounds went above and beyond expectations, resulting in an iconic victory for Sky Juice/Metromedia.
Weaved with high level energy, crafted speeches and infinite music selections with a professionally produced stage as the back drop, the clash’s other contenders, King Addies, Mighty Crown, Fire Links, LP International and Soul Supreme, also delivered entertaining, memorable performances. 

Early in the clash, it became clear that the juggling sounds were a force to be reckoned with. There was no hit or miss by Sky Juice/Metromedia, as the veteran selector won over the audience with experience and class. Appopriately donning a fitted track suit, the charismatic Sky Juice ran circles around most of his competion during R.E.S.E.T. Backed by on point selector Oliver, Sky Juice was the most consistent contender throughout the clash, relying on the union of tight speeches and well-fitted “free tunes.”
Sky Juice/Metromedia alerted the audience and fellow sound men that he didn’t have to spend a whole heap of money to win this clash, rather he counted on the power of music…."free tunes." The famed competition’s other juggling giant Jazzy T/Renaissance came in with a roar, dropping dubs from Damian Jr Gong Marley and a Rihanna dub that fans are still raving over. 

Jazzy T/Rennaisance maintained a strong presence, but unfortunately, their impact started to fade in the 4th round, resulting in elimination. Amidst the R.E.S.E.T. battlefield, the “King of New York” battle ensued. And the undeniable victor was King Addies. The “King” sound, armed with young selectors A1and Kingpin , boasted solid, consistent performances throughout the clash. While leaning on powerful staple selections from King Addies massive dub arsenal, Kingpin consistently advised his competitors and the audience that the new generation of King Addies is equip and here to stay. 

King Addies stronghold in the competition allowed them to avoid elimination and reach the final “tune-fi-tune” stretch against Sky Juice/Metromedia. Unfortunately, fate was not so kind to Soul Supreme and LP International.
Despite the concentrated effort of the Soul Supreme team to sway the tough crowd with speeches, struggles were visible from the beginning. Soul Supreme was eliminated after the 2nd round. Brooklyn hot pick LP had highs and lows. 

Relying on influence of heavy hitting artistes like Garnett Silk and other box anthems, sparked forwards, but not enough to keep LP in the clash. LP went home in the 3rd round. The Fire Links and Mighty Crown rivalry catapulted to another level, resulting in the firing of customized, targeted dubs at each other. 

At times, the audience couldn’t help to give forwards for the comedic dubs. Fire Links was humorous, but often his musical selections failed to connect with the crowd. For example, a ska segment instantly flattened his momentum. Fire Links exited in the 3rd round. Mighty Crown was extremely prepared musically, but long winded speeches and skits negated the power of the big tunes being dropped. “The Far East Rulers” did have a number of respectable forwards, allowing them to make it to the 5th round.
Anxiety was high, as an iconic best of 10 “tune-fi-tune” erupted between the final contenders Sky Juice/Metromedia and King Addies. On a mission to “teach dem,” Sky Juice/Metromedia dropped heavy tunes, winning 6 of the 10 rounds. 

King Addies declared all selections in the exciting segment as “big tunes,” but the selections were not big enough to consistently sway the crowd. King Addies went on to win 2 of the “tune-fi-tune” rounds. 

With a final score of 6 to 2, Sky Juice/Metromedia won World Clash R.E.S.E.T., making history as the first juggling sound to accomplish this feat. World Clash R.E.S.E.T. left a lasting impression on fans, while proving that juggling sounds can play a huge role in sound system entertainment. With Sky Juice/Metromedia’s victory, the level playing field between juggling and clash sounds, which Irish and Chin promotes through R.E.S.E.T., could just well spark a trend!
