About Soundclash XL

The first edition of this annual event took place on sunday May 24th, at Het Depot in Leuven, Belgium. Inspired by the culture of Jamaican soundsystem clashes - and the inimitable Red Bull Culture Clash - we aim to bring together four acts from different ends of the dj spectrum, to have them go head to head in an all-out clash, all in good fun. So while this is obviously not a regular party, the whole point is to get the people to party the hardest and claim the throne.

The concept

The idea is to have each act perform 4 sets of 15 minutes, one after another. These short sets should allow for well prepared rounds, full of energy. The goal is for the acts to win the crowd over with their own style of dj'ing; whether it's the record selection, more technical trick mixing, their own tracks or edits, mystery guests, or their general performance, something should make them rise above the other competitors. One rule of thumb: we don't want to hear the same records all night, so track repeats are preferably only allowed when used in edits or special dubplates.
