CHRONIXX

‘CHRONOLOGY’

DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED VIA SOUL CIRCLE ON 7TH JULY

 

 

“Evolution”“uprising”, “continuation” and “Rastafari” are words used by the 24-year-old singer-songwriter Chronixx. These identifiers embody every nuance of his long-awaited debut Chronology, available in the UK on 28th July 2017 via his label Soul Circle. They tell the story of a young Jamaican music prodigy whose conscious views of the world continue the legacy of reggae’s forbearers, yet also blazes a new path for traditional and non-traditional listeners. Since 2012, Chronixx has organically built that devoted fanbase, turning industry heads as one of Jamaica’s fastest, most-promising talents to represent the iconic Caribbean island to a global audience.

 
From Chronixx’s 2013 breakthrough anthem Smile Jamaica (produced by Silly Walks Discotheque) - that put him on the map - to his 2017 self-produced, dancehall-styled single Likes, these songs are a guide to the progression of Chronixx as a well-rounded artist on ChronologyHis palette for rhythm is limitless, choosing an array of colors to paint vivid pictures. He walks you through the neighborhood that raised him on Spanish Town Rockin’ and pays respect to the women in his life on Majesty - both tracks also featured on his 2016 mixtape Roots & Chalice by Federation Sound. On Ghetto Paradise(produced by Phillip “Winta” James whose credits include Damian Marley and Protoje), Chronixx expresses the bittersweet realities of Jamaica, a juxtaposition of the island’s beautiful aesthetic and the darkness, poverty and strife that lies within. He declares humanity’s indomitable spirit on I Can produced by Parisian production duo Picard Brothers (credits include Major Lazer, Ellie Goulding, Kehlani). Worries drift away onSkankin Sweet the album’s “richly textured one drop groove” (Billboard). The album’s one and only guest feature is reserved for his father, Jamaican reggae vocalist Chronicle on Big Bad Sound. The song hails up all the generals from his father to Haile Selassie who helped shape him musically and spiritually. It is a true example of the art form’s continuation coming full circle.

 
Thoughtful lyricism aside, one of Chronology’s greatest attributes is its layered production. The album’s rich instrumentation allows the messages to digest into a soulful depth.Chronixx co-produced the entire album with a diverse all-star cast spanning the globe. Repping Jamaica, his touring band Zincfence Redemption along with the island’s renowned musicians Lamar 'Riff Raff' BrownDean FraserStephen McGregor (amongst many others) all contributed to the album. While London’s Rudimental and Utters round out this dynamic offering alongside NYC’s Federation Sound. For tracks Country Boy and ChristinaChronixx recruited iconic American blues guitarist Donald Kinsey, known for his recording and touring history with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.  Also a Chicago string orchestra arranged by Matt Jones adds dimension to songs like Legend, Tell Me More and Black Is Beautiful.

 
Chronology was recorded in studios in Brooklyn, Kingston, London and Chicago, mixed at Miami's Circle House Studios and at NYC's Manhattan Center.


In support of his debut album ChronologyChronixx will continue to tour Europe, North America and Japan throughout the summer before joining Ms. Lauryn Hill and Nas on their Autumn 2017 Powernomics tour. Go to www.Chronixxmusic.com for dates and details.

 

 

About Chronixx

 

Born Jamar Rolando McNaughton on October 10, 1992 in Jamaica's second largest city Spanish Town, Chronixx was musically nurtured from an early age by his father, dancehall artist Chronicle. Under the wing of his paternal music mentor, he grew up surrounded by the likes of Burro Banton and Gregory Isaacs and By the time he was a teenager he was making tracks for dancehall royalty such as KonsheensWith a youthful conscious voice carrying the wisdom of generations of reggae singers before him, Chronixx quickly stood out. After playing at Usain Bolt's Tracks & Records restaurant, he caught the eye of Diplo, who curated and released the Chronixx and Walshy Fire‘Start A Fyah’ mixtape.

 

In 2014, his music propelled him into international stardom when his Dread & Terrible project, featuring hits like Here Comes Trouble and Captureland immediately topped the Billboard (U.S.) Reggae chart. That year, he was lauded by the likes of NPR, VOGUEVice and The New Yorkeas the leader of reggae’s new roots generation and landed performances on major stages including his national TV debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and NYC's Central Park Summerstage.
