Saturday night Civalizee won all 4 Rounds over Trooper and deserved the victory in Dubplate Massacre Clash at Wuppertal’s U-Club in Germany.

If you can read german, here’s a little Rundown my friend Culture wrote about the Clash:

Trooper play 1st, civa 2nd. troopers erste runde wird angekündigt, es soll losgehn, aber der mann hat keine headphones. lol großes Grinsen

naja. erste runde – 2 coole bugle tunes gefolgt von ner ausgiebigen lalabella selection. alles dabei. everton blender, ras shiloh, und tony rebel. totale standard speeches „germany i love you, belgium i love you, i love all people!“ LAME NUH FUCK!!!

civilizees erste runde – ein bisschen hype, null speech, kann mich leider nicht mehr präzise an tunes erinnern. war aber auch öde. ganz miese erste runde, civilizee hat aber ein paar forwards bekommen.

2nd round von trooper: fängt an mit der deutschen nationalhymne als dubplate. ich hab geglaubt ich kotze. erstens wars todlangweilig und dieses scheiss angebiedere ist einfach ekelhaft. danach noch n paar bessere speeches als in der ersten, tunemäßig langweilig. ich habe extrem viel sizzla und kartel im kopf, aber alles alte kamellen.

2nd round civilizee – beste runde des abends! forwards ohne ende, richtig viele und gute cobras, shabba und ninja auch dabei. abwechslungsreich und angriffslustig. auch n paar statements in richtung trooper, aber alles eher auf ner „i fuck your gal/suck your madda/fuck off“ schiene, dafür aber meist zum tune passend. bis hierhin noch kein custom von civilizee.

3rd round trooper – nix hängengeblieben, ausser „mi big up flex and buda vex, thats why him a battyman“ lölö…

3rd round civilizee – für meinen persönlichen geschmack schlechte runde, weil: ich hasse den eye of the tiger riddim. gab ne ausgiebige selection darauf und reichlich forwards dafür. kannte man schon vom riddim clash. gegen ende wurds für meinen geschmack besser, da gings in richtung foundation/“big people music“. was genau kann ich mich grad nit erinnern. dafür gabs im frontbereich weniger forwards, waren aber bessere tunes.

4rd round trooper – tonnenweise idiotspeech „if i“m going to lose tonite, it is not because of the music nor the performance, belgian people me love you!“ „when the dvd is gonna be released the whole world will see how the dance really turned out“ gääääääääähn rotes Gesicht trooper hatte zu diesem zeitpunkt weder ne runde gewonnen noch irgendwelche akzente gesetzt. in dieser runde hat er zwar gute dbs gespielt, zb von richie spice earth a run red auf dem cuss cuss(den er auch schon beim riddim clash gespielt hat „everything dead – ricky trooper a di captain!) und ein paar andere solide dubs die man teilweise schon von ihm kannte, dank seiner zunehmends beschissenen speech hat er aber kaum forward bekommen. gegen ende gabs den sugar minott/sizzla tune (ich glaub auf dem stars riddim?) und anschließend ne luciano/mikey general/admiral tibett combo. schien zur kenntnis genommen worden zu sein, gute tunes, aber irgendwie nichts was nen forward bringt.

4rd round civilizee: starke runde!! viel foundation! ken parker und ne selection auf dem zugehörigen riddim, ne kleine selection auf dem carry go bring come riddim und dem zugehörigen tune u.a. danach noch n bisschen auf die fresse mit nem derben movado custom. war ein diss gegen trooper und kartel. dicker forward.

trooper war zu dem zeitpunkt eigtl schon erledigt. alle runden gingen an civilizee, trooper extrem unkonstant und alles andere als gut.

dubfidub war spannend. viele schlechte speeches, viele unpassende tunes, aber endlich wurde mal GEGENEINANDER gespielt und nicht wie größtenteils aneinander vorbei. es gab ein kleines barrington levy „showcase“, dabei gab es kaum speech, dafür die tunes hintereinander weg. zu dem zeitpunkt hab ich mich gefreut, ich hab gehofft die ziehen das jetzt so durch, ohne speech und tunes direkt hintereinander weg. schade war leider nicht so. trooper hat gute forwars für grenzwertige shineheads bekommen, hat nen coolen max romeo ska tune gespielt, und insgesamt mehr oberwasser bekommen. könnte sogar gut sein dass er das dub fi dub gewonnen hat, hab nicht ganz mitgezählt.

civilizee hats aber absolut verdienterweise gemacht, trooper hat aber wieder ne waschweib-action gestartet und theater gemacht.

Seems like Trooper really embaressed himself with all this „Germany I love you“ and „Belgium I love you“-Speech and playing the German National-Anthem.

Here’s also a Rundown in english from Mykal Shotta:

Return from the killin fields. title seh supm bout massacre an was a slaughteration. weak weak trooper loose the entire 4 rounds with cheap an boring set a played out tunes an nuff beg fren an fukkery speech all the time, like tellin the people that civiliazee only won riddim clash wit sum big bag a special an wha him a do: playin a special .

riddimwize trooper decide the hardcore way playin him cartel, beenie on the sick riddim him cuss cuss selection but wit boring tunes like the richie spice red. sum likkle 4wards him get wit 2 stitchie an one papa san. less roots an culcha like him sugar minott sizzler combination an sum mikey general

civilizee get the bigger responce in every round. the dubplates them arrange & play way above the boring shit that trooper a drop. sum wikkid shabba, sizer, cobra an movado callin out fe battybwoy cartel. presentation look weird when them barefoot mc jump around the table an do em dance… but argumen better than bullshit talk of trooper.

after 4 rounds no tune fe tune needed, decision more than clear but the judge decide to go ina 10/10 each. was not spectacular in what them play. civilizee come with the beres zap pow ting, 3 barrington levy, juastin heindz (an not the regular that all the other use in tft) ken parker (them played 2 ken parker, one b4 tft. both identical with the downbeat ones), israel vibration…trooper play bare fukkery like the scion suck sess sehin dun dead aready 2 shineheads (one was ok, the ruff an rugged no mek it), counterin wit 1 or 2 unspectacular barrington sum max romeo on a ska riddim weh try 2 catch sum jumpy jump but no work at all.

all in all weak one sided ting, boring kaw trooper wit no concept an borin set a tunes. trooper try him ting again tellin weird tings bout leading rounds an winning tune fe tune that the heart of a clash. joke ting that far far from reality but sum people get punket wit it so that end decision took sum xtra time weh not far from changin situation

tune of the n8 was dynamiq custom from civilizee on sum kinda root riddim that buss the place.

And I found a few vid’s on DHR:

As the column keeps growing and growing, this time we take a look to the middle east and feature a sound from Israel called „Abuya„.

abuyalogo

They’re well known for bringing the original style of Jugglin‘ to the rural areas of Israel, they promoting their own events, gone on a successful europe tour last year, steady releasing mix-cds and continue to push Dancehall-Reggae in Israel.

Let’s keep the Ball a roll like this:

# Please introduce your Sound and all the members to the readers.

ABUYA SOUND Members: Smadicriss (MC, Selector) Rocker-i (Selector) Ronni (Selector) & Dani Cure (Selector & Booking + Management)

boombang_80

# When was the founding of your Sound and since when do you djing?

Abuya was founded by Smadicriss & Rocker-i in 2005 in the rural area of northern Israel and quickly began to climb up the top of the reggae\dancehall scene in the country.

In 2007 Ronni & Dani Cure joined the sound and ABUYA stepped up the game to become one of Israel’s finest Jugglin‘ Sounds.

# Can you describe which style your sound plays mostly?

We believe that a sound have to be versatile and knowledgable in all genres of jamaican culture, whether it’s foundation music (rocksteady, roots, rub a dub) or hardcore dancehall.

Abuya is the sound that gets the most bookings in israel because of that ability – to play everything and to adjust the various selection to a various crowd.
Reggae Dances outside of Tel Aviv are more culture-like, more rootical and carry a nice vibes to them, while the Tel Aviv Massive are die-hard Dancehall Fans… forward the latest riddims, know the lyrics, craziness!
We play allover the country, but it is safe to say that the vibes in Tel Aviv are the baddest, while we juggle straight dancehall up to soca music. Straight Dagga. Lol
# Please tell me about the most important cornermarks in the sounds history, like clashes, the baddest dances, etc.

Trough we are a young sound, we have a lot a head of us but we do share some local cornermarks.
Like the 3rd Anniversary we did in Tel Aviv long side LP Intl.
That dance did mad, not a single 45 did play that night, it was a 100% Dubplate Jugglin Session.
Or the European tour we did in september 2008, playin in Italy, Germany, Holland & Finland longside good friends like Herb-a-lize it, I-Shence, Komposti, Supersonic and more.
It was an important and great experience for us.

# Which plans do you have for your sound in the near future and what are the real longtime plans for it?

Future plans? Well, lately we’re all kinda busy…university…jobs…life in general 🙂 so basically we concentrating in juggling whenever we can and keeping our own dances from time to time hosting some major forces from Europe (Supersonic, Herb-a-lize it, I-shence).
We really hope to check Yard again in the near future cause thats still the best place to catch vibes, voice dubs and maybe spin some tunes here and there.
When we look at the long run plans we definitly would like to take part in a sound clash and buss Abuya in that department also, its gonna take us a few years still, but yes, to kill sound is a must!
# Which persons, sounds, artists have influenced you musicallywise?

Our influences are varied… from listening to old cassettes from yard to legends like King Stur Gav, Jah Love, Jaro, Stone Love up to newer generation like Bass Odyssey… and down to sounds that we just rate and they are like family to us on a personal level – like Supersonic and I-Shence.
Each one teach one.
Artists that we rate is hard to answer… far too many to mention… we just love jamaican music. I think thats good enough…
barzilay2
# What was the first dubplate you ever voiced, and do you still play it?

Our first dubplate was a Sugar Minott dub we voiced at Youthman Promotion Studios in Kingston, in 2006… yes, we still play it from time to time.
Thank you for the Interview and big up all of you, Abuya.
