Early Sunday morning, members of the Observer Sound from Birmingham, England, were celebrating their victory in the UK Rumble sound clash series, promoted by Irish and Chin.

They topped rivals Classique, Mello Tone, Empire, Infinity, and defending champions Mour Dan at Corah Suite Banquet Hall in Leicester.

“Even after we went to our respective homes, we were still celebrating. None of us could sleep. We were just happy that we won the title,” John “Twinny Ranks” Bryant, chief selector for Observer Sound, told the Jamaica Observer's Splash.

Bryant and his colleagues, Clifton “Father Benji” Benjamin, Solaman Griffiths and Tony “Gunnzy” Collins, entered the competition after attending over the years.

“We were confident that we could win. After witnessing what went on in previous years, we decided to give it a shot,” he said.

Observer Sound's members are first generation Britons.

“We were born in the UK but our parents are from Jamaica. However, we do visit Jamaica a lot and it's like our second home,” Bryant said, adding that being original was the difference between Observer Sound and their competitors in UK Rumble.

Observer Sound, fellow Rumble winners Klymaxx (Canada), Stereo 5 (United States), Rodem Cyclone (Japan), defending champions Mystic (from Canada) and a wild card pick, will advance to the World Clash grand final, to be held later this year at a venue to be announced.
