LA Rumble 2008

I once again missed this year’s LA Rumble, one of the few clashes happening on the west coast. An audio recording of the action is available over at Massive Productions website. Haven’t had time to listen to it yet, but it should be interesting.

By accident I actually ended up at the same venue as where the clash went down just the week before (The Joint, down in mid-Wilshire territory somewhere). It wasn’t reggae night though, instead I got to witness Dizzy Reed — you may know him as the keyboard player from Guns & Roses — and his band “Hookers and Blow” perform some classic rock covers. Class act. How can anyone not love Los Angeles? You can’t make stuff like that up.

  2. It’s Soundclash time again! Yes massive, join us for our fifth chapter of the Annual LA Rumble. After a successful 45 Shootout (“Judgement Day”, July 09), we’ll be returning to one of Los Angeles premiere reggae venue-the Salaam temple on Saturday December 12th 2009. The event is proudly sponsored by REGGAEEVENTS.COM and reggae giant VP RECORDS for what will be billed as one of the ALL-TIME best West Coast clashes!

    It is our 5th year so we decided to add a segment to the LA Rumble. We are proud to announce that local sounds will be showcased in a “Juggling to Kill” format. Make no mistake: they have made an impact on the scene and are ready to shine on this platform. The sounds include: 1 Love Sound (Selecta Easy B, Biggy & Soldier), Fayah Heart Sound (Dj Blocc & Selecta Gill), POSITIVE RHYTHM (DJ Hier – Pum Pum Tuesdays), and The Fayah Squad (Glamma D & Dj Mike).

    The Juggling to Kill will be served as an appetizer to the main course: this year’s LA RUMBLE which will feature last year’s Los Angeles contender but now newly relocated to Japan: BLACK GOLD SOUND. Their dubplate arsenal shocked the crowd and gave the winner a run for their money. Some may beg to differ. Two-time champions JAH WARRIOR SHELTER HI-FI (San Francisco) are back once again to defend their title. LA fans are well aware of the depths of their crates and decided of their fate two years in a row before they even reached the tune for tune. This year’s LA Rumble will feature 2 newcomers but veterans in this business! Their contribution to the clash arena speaks for itself: they have participated in high level clashes since the 80’s! New York’s infamous EARTH RULER will be returning in Los Angeles after a 10 year hiatus. Last but not least, Florida’s most notorious killing sound POISON DART will also participate. We are honored to have this lineup for this year’s LA RUMBLE hosted by our very own MC Lightfoot. He has been a constant since the inception of this exclusive event. Come one, come all, tell a friend, wake the town: you simply can’t afford to miss this year’s LA RUMBLE.
