Get your boxing gloves on, Soundclash Championships (formerly “The Official UK iPod Battle”) are back and arming themselves with some serious players!! M.I.A. and friends currently hold the Official Soundclash Champion title, who will take the crown in 2009?!
8 teams – 8 MP3 players – 3 tournament rounds – 1 fighting cage – 1 decibel meter
Hosted and refereed by Teki Latex (TTC) and Marawa The Amazing (La Clique), Soundclash is set to take place on Tuesday 9th June, at the Bloomsbury Ballroom, with an amazing line-up ready to get the crowd cheering for their win!!
The way it goes down – Two by two, the teams enter the arena and battle head-to-head: 4 tracks per team, from their MP3 players. As the stakes get higher, so do the screams of the crowd. Judging is simple: the winning team makes the crowd scream loudest. The decibel meter decides. Teams can’t win without digging deep in the crates and thinking outside the box. Expect crazy hype, fancy costumes and high tension!!
