Art of War DJ sound-off billed for July 27
If the verbal trade-off among Disc Jockeys (DJs) is anything to judge by, then Art of War DJ sound-off 2019 is surely set to be one of the most entertaining ever.
Empire Media Inc. (EMI), the organising body, officially launched the event this week at Turning Point Sports Bar, confirming July 27 as the day eight DJs would go head-to-head at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, Homestretch Avenue.
Speaking at the launch, Mikhail DaSilva of EMI said: “EMI has reignited and rejuvenated what was a dormant and dying dancehall and sound clash industry in Guyana. This was possible with the successful hosting of seven deejay clashes from 2016 to present.”
DaSilva further stated that EMI is excited with the rejuvenation and new energy seen in the dancehall industry.
He noted that DJs and sounds are getting the opportunity to showcase themselves to the world and indicated that the winner of the Armageddon Clash 2018 (Notorious Sound) will represent Guyana at the Caribbean Kung Fu Sound Clash in St. Kitts in August and the winner of Destination Badda Dan Guyana 2018 (Trinity Sound) will represent Guyana in Switzerland later this year.
On board with EMI this year for Art of War is Guyana Beverages Inc. as the official Energy Drink sponsor.
According to Raymond Govinda, Brand Manager: “Guyana Beverages Inc. recognises the importance of supporting cultural values within Guyana and providing a platform for local talents to grow and develop. Art of War provides the perfect platform for this to happen and to further the growth of our brand among this audience.”
Govinda stated that Guyana Beverages Inc. is proud to partner with EMI for Art of War 2019 and the Turbo Energy Drink will be the official Energy Drink of the event. He noted that the Art of War Clash offers good vibes, entertainment and energy which is what the Turbo brand seeks to offer to consumers.
The participating DJs are DJ Kevin of Royalti Vybz Sound, DJ Guy of Mighty Ruler Sound, DJ Supreme of Notorious International Sound, DJ Versatile of Vigilante Sound, Jimmy Slaughta of Firehouse Sound, DJ Bandit of Spotlight Sound, DJ Dauren and DJ Damion.
The winner of the Clash will receive one million dollars and two round trip tickets to Jamaica.
