Silver Star Catch Up With Chronixx

Always one to light up your airwaves with some of the best music and artists coming out of the Dancehall and Reggae scene, Gussy and Randy will be catching up with one of the music scene's pioneers - Chronixx!

 

The Jamaican artist has ignited a torch in people's hearts across the globe and is confidently lighting the path for an entire generation of youths to rediscover roots and culture.

 

 

Starting from humble beginnings growing up with dancehall artist Chronicle as his father, Chronixx's ascension in the music industry has been remarkable to sayt he least. Having started out harmonising for artists such as Lutan Fyah and providing production assistance for tracks sung by Popcaan, Konshens and more, Chronixx has now paved his own way as a well respected solo artist in his own right.

 

His debut EP 'Hooked On Chronixx' in 2011 immediately put the budding star on the radar of music lovers and industry heads alike with 'Start A Fyah', 'Warrior' and breakout single 'Behind Curtain' standing out as fan favourites far beyond Jamaican shores.

 

 

 

 

2014 saw the release of The Dread & Terrible Project - a set comprised of seven tracks plus three dub versions - immediately topping the Billboard (US) and iTunes reggae charts in both UK and Japan. Neither an album nor an EP, the Project includes the widely received ‘Capture Land’ and a short film based on one of its tracks, 'Rastaman Wheel Out' (directed by Ras Kassa), to critical acclaim.

Hit single 'Here Comes Trouble' captured late night American TV presenter Jimmy Fallon’s attention while on vacation in Jamaica. The chance encounter lead to a personal request for the young musician to perform live on Fallon’s TV show in July 2014. A concert held in Central Park the following week was a roadblock affair from the outset, thousands of attendees turned out including Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger celebrating his 71st birthday.

Chronixx toured for the first time in 2013 when he went to Europe with his own band Zincfence Redemption. He has since embarked on solo tours from the Americas to Africa and the Oceanic region; including sold out shows in New York (Irving Plaza), three shows in London (including Somerset House), Ethiopia, Kenya, Trinidad & Tobago, Australia, Canada, Japan and being the first band to do a two-part tour of Jamaica (Capture Land Tour).

With so much accomplished in such short time, the world is bracing for greater wonders from this young man who walks with an old soul. For Chronixx himself, music is a mission and history is being made everyday still.

"Prepare your minds and hearts for this revolution."

 

Don't miss Silver Star catch up with Chronixx after his performance on the Jools Holland show last month, this Friday 14th july from 9-11pm.
