Questlove’s Live Music Show ‘SoundClash’ to Air on VH1, Palladia

The Roots co-founder and drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson will exec produce the new VH1 and Palladia music performance series “SoundClash,” set to premiere on both cablers this summer.

Hosted by DJ/producer Diplo, “SoundClash” will bring diverse acts together on one stage to perform both hits and new collaborations in front of a live studio audience, beginning with a premiere episode featuring Fall Out Boy, Lil Wayne and British group London Grammar. The second installment will welcome Sheeran, Sia and the up-and-coming U.S. band Grouplove.

“Music fuels our passions here at VH1 and Palladia,” VH1 and Palladia prexy Tom Calderone said in a statement. “‘SoundClash’ will showcase established acts at their peak, spotlight breaking artists on the rise, and introduce what’s breaking on the music scene at that moment.  But it will be the collaborative spirit between the performers on the show that will have music fans buzzing throughout the telecast and for days afterwards.”

“’SoundClash’ is all about convergence,” QuestLove added. “It’s a place where the cutting edge of the emergent act meets the winning assuredness of the established artist. It’s a lush, level playing field where the talented blend and the genres bend in ways that will resonate with even the most discerning lovers of today’s music.”

The series is also exec produced by Shawn Gee, Jac Benson of Blacjac Entertainment and Tarik “Black Thought” Trotter of The Roots, with Rick Krim and Lee Rolontz exec producing for VH1.

“SoundClash” premieres July 23 on VH1 and Palladia.
