Channel One Sound System – The Clash Interview

Over 30 years in the game, brothers Mikey Dread and Ras Kayleb as Channel One Sound System represent the heart of bass line culture, and the true representation of what it is to be labelled a ‘sound system.’

In the lead up to Red Bull Music Academy’s Culture Clash this Thursday night at Roundhouse, I managed to catch a few minutes of their time for a quick chat about what it is to represent like they do, the meanings behind the culture, and what they’ve got planned as they go up against Skream & Benga, Soul Jazz Sound System and the reigning champions Metalheadz on the night.
