Behind an awesome display of selecting by ace selectors Killa and Clarksie, Alaska sound destroyed New York's Baby Wayne Movement at the Boom Clash finals at Cling Cling Oval, St Andrew, recently.


The event, staged by All Stars Promotions with Boom energy drink as principal sponsors, began on March 5 and lasted 11 weeks.

Before a jam-packed venue, Alaska exhibited flawless selection and toasting abilities to win over judges and audiences, walking away with the coveted trophy and cash incentives.

Contested over five rounds: Alaska took the first two, the opening Juggling 15 minutes block followed by the Best Five 45s section.

Showing grit, Baby Wayne Movement took the third Best Singers Dub segment.

Undaunted, selectors Killa and Clarksie brought Alaska roaring back into the Challenge round, which featured the best of singer Gregory Isaacs before seeing off Baby Wayne in the Dub for Dub segment. In so doing, Alaska restored its fan base as the sound had started with a loss to another New York-based sound, King Fargo.

Facing elimination in the must-win knockout round, Alaska easily put away Interceptor from Trelawny before reaching the final with a workman-like win over Ricky Trooper in the semis.

Alaska, which has built a large fan base through its Hott Tuesday weekly dance at Mall Road, was full of praise for the competition through its owner KiKi and road manager and oldies selector Kernel. Both men endorsed the two-year-old contest, saying it is good for the industry.

Other entrants in the contest included King Jammys, Pink Panther, and Innocent Crew.
