Dancehall History for New York with “Game Over”



Beenie Man, Ninja Man, Tony Matterhorn and veteran selector David Rodigan are joining the lineup of top selectors from around the world to celebrate the 10th anniversary and final staging of World Clash New York – entitled, "Game Over." Founded by Irish and Chin Inc., the highly anticipated meeting of "toppa notch" selectors and sounds, will be held at Amazura in Queens, New York, on November 24, 2007. This event is set to mark the end of an era.

"We are extremely ecstatic about closing out World Clash in style, as these past ten years have been quite rewarding," says Garfield "Chin" Bourne, Irish and Chin, Inc. "Our dedicated fans deserve to experience the best in sound clash entertainment, while being a part of history."

World Clash New York revolutionized sound system (DJ) competitions and the sound clash arena as a whole. "Game Over" is expected to attract a diverse audience of clash lovers as well as those not particularly fond of sound clashes, with its champion features and driving dancehall rhythms.

Guidelines set by boxing will be followed, with "Game Over" mimicking boxing's staging of multiple matches in one night. Keeping with the huge sport of boxing, Irish and Chin, Inc. has decided to bring World Clash to a close by staging three marquee events in one night.

The openers will consist of two 10-minute matches and a "tune fi tune" segment with a Vintage Cup Clash between Ninja Man & David Rodigan, followed by a Celebrity Cup Clash between Beenie Man & Tony Matterhorn. Finally, The Main Event will follow standard World Clash guidelines and feature a stunning line up of World Clash champions including: Black Kat (2003 & 2004), Mighty Crown (1999), Bass Odyssey (2001 & 2006), Rebel Tone (2002) and Sentinel (2005).

Irish and Chin, Inc. is credited for producing flagship sound clashes, including the popular World Clash series, that began in New York in 1998. The event was created as a vehicle of reviving New York's diminishing sound clash arena. World Clash grew into a gigantic event, which attracted thousands of diehard fans each year and some of the World's best sound systems. World Clash in New York's popularity spawned World Clash in other territories including Jamaica, Canada and Antigua.
