1997 // TURBOPHONIC (VS KILLAMANJARO) // TERRY GANZIE & EVERTON BLENDER




This is when, seemingly out of nowhere, the clash world was shaken up by the sounds called TURBOPHONICS!!! They clashed all the big sounds during a brilliant but brief 2 year period. Winterfresh ended up getting bought out by the Yankee dollar on King Addies, but the theory is Addies selector Baby Face never really gave Winterfresh a chance, as he had been before with Matterhorn. Nevertheless, Winterfresh shined brightest on Turbophonics (which is one of the tuffest sound names ever btw) and this performance in St. Lucea, Jamaica captures it quite nicely. Winterfresh is confidently taking on the juggernaut Killamanjaro the sound with the most kills along with Ricky Trooper the selector with the most kills. Turbo plays culture on a Studio One riddims right next to the top chart hits of the day all in a sound style, and they had seemingly endless amounts Capleton, Sizzla, and Bounty Killer... As an added bonus, Everton Blender & Terry Ganzie make an appearance on the sound... I couldnt find photos of Winterfresh or Turbophonics but I have some of the artistes who pass through...
