Jackson Wang is the second face of Clash 122.

A modern icon, Jackson Wang is a true all-rounder, someone who pushes himself to perfection in every discipline open to him. Yet it also comes with a heavy price - in this extensive and intimate cover feature, he opens up as never before about his fears, and how the drive to succeed can sometimes exact as punishing cost.

In one of his most profoundly honest interviews yet, Jackson Wang opens his world to Clash, speaking privately in Seoul about some of his darkest moments, and how he was able to use this to steer back towards the light. Touching on his new album, past experiences, and so much more, this cover piece offer a 360 view of a pan-genre aesthete.

As he tells us: “Every time I meet someone, I open myself up 100%. It’s a gift and a curse.”

Suki Waterhouse is the third face of Clash 122.

As a model and actress, fans have grown used to the feeling of connection Suki Waterhouse can engender. Yet as her success grew, the English figure began to feel disconnected from the person who mattered most - herself.

Pushing to locate fresh space to explore, Suki Waterhouse began indulging her love of music, using songwriting as a method of finding focus, as a sort of therapy. Listening to herself for the first time, what emerges is a depiction of someone refusing to wear a mask, and allowing the world to see her - in her entirety - for the very first time.

As she puts it: “Having a lot of time to figure out what you want to say and how you want to say it is a gift…”

Popcaan is the fourth face of Clash 122.

Lockdown saw Popcaan cut off from the world – so he tapped into his heritage, and burrowed deeper than ever. The results are going to take him to the next level.

With an album incoming, the Jamaican icon talks about his inspirations, and his processes; reflecting on grief, and his need to engage, Popcaan shares his full story - and reveals a little about what's to come.

Retaining a deep love for British music, he shouts out UK drill, muses on diasporic communications, and exclusively reveals that he's taking Unruly Fest to London for the very first time.

As he puts it: “I use music to free myself… it’s like healing.”
