With Red Bull Culture Clash around the corner, NUBI have decided to catch up with one of the contestant’s for the Manchester heats from the sound system, Made In Manchester. Here’s a little low-down on what happened when we caught up with MC Trigga.
NUBI: How did the Made In Manchester sound system come about?
MC TRIGGA: The Made in Manchester team was an idea shared between me and Wilf. He suggested we should call the team Made in Manchester after a mixtape I recorded in 2005.
NUBI: What got you interested in sound systems and the culture surrounding them?
MT: I was raised in the sound system culture from a very early age, my brother had a sound system and I used to perform on Megatone sound foundation, Now Generation, Yootman, and Jah Guide; these sounds provided my first platform.
NUBI: What are you bringing to the table that will trump your competition?
MT: What I’m bringing to the table is a secret but I will say this: I am bringing my experience of entertaining and my knowledge of music to the forefront.
NUBI: Who do you possibly view as your biggest opposition?
MT: My biggest opposition would have to be Levels because I have worked with them closely and they know me. I have made music with Chimpo and I am also aware that he has real experience in the art of sound clashing.
NUBI: What do you personally bring to your sound system?
MT: What I bring to my sound system is my music that is being embraced all over the UK, my positive vibes and energy, and my knowledge of my opponents.
NUBI: What do you think of the other sound systems in the other 3 culture clash events?
MT: I think any of the sound systems involved have the ability to win and take the title, we will just have to see who plays the biggest tracks and who’s ready on the night!
NUBI: What are your plans after culture clash as a solo artist and as part of Made In Manchester?
MT: I am currently working on an album as a solo artist. As for Made in Manchester, we come together to represent our sound which is Jungle Drum and Bass. The movement will continue to work together after the soundclash to bring the music scene forward in the future
Thanks to The Rest Is Noise and Red Bull for all the help, and roll on to Red Bull Culture Clash Manchester!!!!
