It was a show down of giants at the Guinness Sounds of Greatness last Saturday night as Coppershot Disco faced off against Bass Odyssey.
In one of the closest matches to date, Bass Odyssey scrapped a win against Coppershot due to the technical difficulties the Coppershot sound experienced. The stage was set in Highgate St Mary for the well anticipated match of newcomers to the Guinness stage Coppershot went against the more experienced Bass Odyssey. Despite the rain that could have put a damper on the event patrons came out in their numbers to experience the fun of the sound clash competition and to win a chance at Guinness giveaways. Hosted by comedian Elva, the clash also saw the likes of Jamrock and Swatch International facing off with Jamrock coming out the winner.
The first clash saw Bass Odyssey versus Coppershot with Coppershot starting first in the juggling segment. With music provided by DJ Sanjay and toasting being interchanged by DJs Small Voice and Cutty, Coppershot whipped the patrons into a frenzy, which climaxed with a customized dub from Bugle warning Bass Odyssey that they were going to die tonight. While Bass odyssey earned a good response from their intro from Assassin, which was centered around Guinness, they failed to really move the crowd from there with a very lackluster selection and saw the crowd awarding the first round unanimously to Coppershot.
In the second round Bass Odyssey managed to gain back their thunder in the tune for tune segment, with a gospel song that had patrons moving. Bass Odyssey caught another advantage as CoppershotÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s laptop malfunctioned and CoppershotÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mc tried to explain to the patient crowd what was happening. The judges gave the edge to Bass Odyssey subtracting points from Coppershot for the glitch.
The dub-for-dub third round proved to be the most exciting of all in which each sound was required to play 7 dubs each. Coppershot come out strong with dubs from the likes of DeMarco, Tarrus Riley, Twinz of twinz and Chino who the sound played a remix of his Pon Yuh Head. Bass Odyssey came back with a custom built Ras Penco and WaspÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Unfair Officer special that while good didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get the same reaction as CoppershotÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s customized dubs all calling Bass OdysseyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s name. However at the deciding moment as Coppershot prepared their final dub threatening to kill Bass Odyssey with one of their own selectors, in the form of a Charly Black dub, another technical mishap caused the song to be played distorted leading to the judges subtracting points once again.
At the end of the night the judges gave Bass Odyssey 223 points to CoppershotÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 221. Judge DJ Squeeze explained that CoppershotÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s technical difficulties and lack of a vintage song gave Bass Odyssey the edge in what was a competitive match.
