One of the fastest rising Reggae artists out of Jamaica, Chronixx, is ready to hit the old continent, April + Summer Festivals 2014. Chronixx and Zinc Fence Redemption band will be in Europe presenting the “ Dread & Terrible “ Tour alongside Dre Island and Kelissa.
The tour starts March 27, 2014 in Amsterdam, Holland in the Melkweg.
At just 20-years old Jamaican-born artiste Chronixx already has a handful of successful singles, music videos and a mixtape with Diplo’s Major Lazer. This is all before he’s even released a full-length album. But what makes Chronixx’s early success so intriguing is the way he’s done it. Spearheading a new reggae revival, Chronixx’s music is heavy on unwavering positivity and a live-band sound.The result is a refreshing change of pace that just might alter the Jamaican music scene in a major way.
With a message of acceptance and love and Rastafari being the foundation of his message, it explains why the world is gravitating to his music. After two successful European tours, Chronixx and the Zinc Fence Band hit USA for an 8 date Dread and Terrible east coast tour (so named for their forthcoming EP, to be released on Chronixx’s label Zinc Fence Records) which concluded on Sept. 21 in Brooklyn, Chronixx and his band have played in mostly sold-out venues averaging a capacity of 600.
Island Records’ founder (turned hotel and rum magnate) Chris Blackwell is also impressed by Chronixx, describing his music, in an email to Billboard.biz, as “completely fresh, uplifting and very pure,” adding that “it’s fantastic for someone so young to be able to communicate his message in the way he does and entertain at the same time.”
Dre Island is David Rodigan personal bet. The veteran mention on the BBC 1Xtra radio program: ” Rodigan´s scorcher is Dre Island´s Uptown Downtown.” One of the Reggae Revival female voices is definitely Kelissa. The recording artiste have toured Africa and is now ready for the first European run.
