Hometown sound system Three Sevens won the Caribbean Rumble sound system clash last Saturday at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in St John's, Antigua.

They beat six rivals for a spot in the World Clash finals scheduled for New York in October. The other competitors were King Animosity (US Virgin Islands), Poison Dart (Antigua), OGS Genesis (Bermuda), Dubb Starr (Montserrat), Taurus (Trinidad), and Jamaica's Code Red which finished second.

“Winning the first Caribbean Rumble is a big accomplishment for our sound and I must say, this is one of our biggest title yet in our career. We are very excited about the victory,” Three Sevens member Jeron “Booby” Samuel said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

The audience determines winners in the Sound Clash series.

Three Sevens is from the English Harbour area of Antigua. The sound system has been around since 1992 and currently has eight members.

Caribbean Rumble is the brainchild of veteran New York promoters Irish and Chin. Garfield “Chin” Bourne spoke about the competition.

“The highlight was seeing so many sounds from across the Caribbean deliver high-energy performances that the crowd really enjoyed. The competitive factor was extremely heightened at #CaribbeanRumble-sparking a level of suspense as one literally couldn't wait to see

and hear what music gem or wicked speech the well-skilled sounds would come with next,” he said.
