Line Up: Supersonic, LP International
It all started with a pack of mix cds named Supersonic in the summer of 1998 that Panza (selector), Supersonic’s head honcho released all by himself. By that time he was not even thinking about running a soundsystem, dub cutting, participating in soundclashes or touring the world. He just wanted to share his new found love for reggae and dancehall music through his mixes. Things started to develop and Panza soon saw himself selecting at various clubs in his hometown Berlin where he met Spider (mc) the following year. The two played their first gigs together and became the core of the soundsystem as it still exists today. Since Spider spent several years of his childhood in Trinidad and grew up listening to reggae he was destined to become the mc for the sound. Later that year both linked up with Uzi, a soundclash enthusiast and tape collector who took care of sound fx and administrative issues. In 2001 Sonic won the much acclaimed “Kill Or Be Killed” newcomer clash and instantly gained ground among the German soundclash fraternity. The sound became a force to be reckoned with, toured all over Germany, played major festivals and participated in soundclashes. The mixes got spread worldwide and Supersonic was in demand both home and abroad. The real breakthrough in the clash arena came with “Riddim Clash 2004” where Supersonic buried three opponents at Munich’s Muffathalle. At this point there was no holding back and Supersonic became one of Europe’s leading forces in soundclash.
