The sound system concept originated in the 1950s in Kingston, JamaicaDJs would load up a truck with a generator, turntables, and huge speakers to set up street parties and events. 

The sound system scene is a part of Jamaican cultural history and responsible for the rise of modern Jamaican musical styles such as skarocksteadyreggae and dub. When Jamaicans emigrated to the United Kingdom, the sound system culture followed and became firmly rooted there in the 1970s. Today the sound system culture is worldwide and an essential to many community. They are many types of  sound systems the most popular being the fundations sound.


Fundation sound system host events such as Nyabinghi a protective space for rasta people to embrace their ancestral culture while chanting down the unfair works of the babylon system.  The sound system are used amplifies the Drums/rhythms touching the souls with positive vibrations and messages to the youths. This sound is the one love movement spreading JAH works and love worldwide. Artist such as Dennis brown - Bob marley - Capleton - Sizzla - Bunny wailer - lucky dub - Garnett silk - Freddie Mcgregor -fred Locks - Buju Banton and many more reggae legends are considered the cornerstone of foundation sounds. 


Clash System plays a variety of Party and Foundation music selection but the main focus is war.

These sounds play DUBPLATES an exclusive cut of dancehall , soca , hip hop  or reggae songs to battle in Sound clash.

sound clash is a musical competition where crew members from opposing sound systems pit their skills against each other. Sound clashes take place in a variety of venues, both indoors and outdoors, and primarily feature reggaedancehall, hip hop music. The object is to beat or "kill" their competitors. 

The first round is no elimination, each sound plays a set time. Second round each sound system plays but one sound system being eliminated by poor performance, poor quality or by playing back a song. Elimination continues until two sounds are left, for example Reality sound  sound vs Ja Jah settings Sound . 

The time interval gets shorter and shorter, with the introduction of television clashes, so when playing returns to one sound again, they may only play a shorter time, 15 minutes. Near the end of the clash they go song on song or "Dub fi dub."

Traditionally, all dubplates must feature the DJ's name, marking it as exclusive for that particular DJ, otherwise the DJ faces instant disqualification. Also, if a DJ where to play a dubplate based on a "riddim" already played during the clash he/she could face disqualification.

Where only two sound systems are playing, winning is based on 10 dub plates in tune for tune, regardless of who leads all night.

Dubplates from artist like Ninja man - Bounty killer - Shabba ranks - Super-cat - Mavado - Vybz kartel pair along with foundation Dubs are the tool used to destroy the completion.
