When it comes to sound bwoy killing......Jamaica Better Know

Whazzup peeeps today is another Funky Fresh Friday and mad people we bring you something very fresh funky and full of vibes. A true snapshot of the power of dancehall culture. The sound clash culture born in Jamaica in the sixties has evolved and  developed from the early days of Coxsone Dodd, Bunny Striker Lee etc through Stone Love and now Ricky Trooper, Tony Matterhorn  and Pink Panther. The sound clash culture has also exploded overseas with sounds like Mighty Crown (Japan)  and Boy Better Know becoming the dominant force in the UK sound bwoy clashes.

Boy Better Know is a collective of British Djs who are known for the grime movement an off shoot of dancehall and jungle music. They decided to pay respect to the origin of dub plates and sound clashing and get some tips to the di real big men in the biz.

Check out this maaad clip on their journey and their homage, it is worth your time trust mi

Featuring Big Youth, Famous Night club, Hellshire and other Kingston land marks, truly a mad moment in music ... in a real life!

Boy Better Know was formed in 1985 in North London by JME together with his brother Skepta and Wiley. They are also have a clothing line and once had a mobile network. Dem ya man Biiig in UK and Britian.

In November 2012 they performed at Red Bull culture clash and won. They performed again there in October 2014 after this trip but lost very closely to Rebel Sound.
