New York, New York – September 2013 — The internationally popular artist Konshens has added an incredible accolade to his growing list of accomplishments. The stellar dancehall act has landed the very first theme song for the epic sound system competition World Clash R.E.S.E.T. 2 which is scheduled for Saturday, October 12 in Queens, New York at Amazura event hall. Konshens’ rising dancehall hit “ANY WEH” was selected as the clash’s official theme song by the event’s promoters Irish and Chin because of it’s hard hitting impact.
“From the first time I heard ‘ANY WEH’ — the energy from the song and the lyrical content captivated me,” says Garfield “Chin” Bourne of Irish and Chin. “The song screams I am BRAVE, BOLD and BAD, which mirrors the attitudes of sounds and selectors when clashing.”
“From a youth, we follow World Clash and the global impact it has on sound system and the sport of sound clash. Never have I heard Irish and Chin pick a theme song for World Clash, so I am honored for my song ‘ANY WEH’ to be chosen….it’s a good feeling and achievement,” says Konshens proudly.
World Clash R.E.S.E.T. will feature a mix of notorious clash and juggling sounds, including Fire Links, King Addies, Soul Supreme, Mighty Crown, LP, Jazzy T/Renaissance and Sky Juice/Metromedia. Topping off this intense line up is the super-charged “ANY WEH,” which Irish and Chin will incorporate into all of World Clash R.E.S.E.T. 2’s official advertising and promotions. The energy-fueled song is sure to capture the essence of the high profile clash, motivating sound system and dancehall fans alike. Moving forward, Irish and Chin will identify a song each year to use as the action-packed World Clash’s theme.
The World Clash brand has been in existence since the late 90’s. Promoters Irish and Chin have prided themselves with producing a high caliber sound system competition that is recognized throughout the world. A central point of importance for Irish and Chin is innovation. Notably, World Clash became the first sound clash packaged and promoted like a stage show, the first clash to market selectors and sounds as celebrities and the first clash to achieve an international media presence and visibility. Now, World Clash is the first to peg an official theme song….thanks to Konshens’ fiery “ANY WEH.”
Konshens is fresh on the heels of five performances during the course of Labor Day festivities in New York, a record breaking performance in Uganda, Africa before 60,000 raving fans and a successful European tour. The Dancehall celeb continues to amuse fans with monster hits like “Gyal a Bubble,” “Do Sumn,” “Realest,” “Good Girl Gone Bad” and more. And “ANY WEH” is quickly becoming a sensation, rivaling its predecessors.
