The musical battle, held at the former Anthony’s site, saw 2020 Vision, Brotherhood Sound System, Nightmares on Wax and SubDub compete for the title.

Hip-hop star Serocee judged the event, and with the audience’s help, chose Leeds-based Subdub as the champion.

A spokesperson for Red Bull said: “It was an epic event that saw more than 500 people turn out as each crew battled for the sound clash crown. Leeds-based Subdub were the eventual winners after the crowd had voted for its champion.”

The Subdub crew is made up of Iration Steppas Sound System, YT, Daddy Freddy and Blackout Ja.

The Red Bull Culture Clash takes into account the sound, special guests, refrains and presen­tation.

Culture clashes stem from Jamaican culture and sees performers hype up fans into supporting a crew and ultimately deciding who will win.

The event at the Corn Exchange was held on Thursday, October 9 and was made up of four rounds.
