In an age of over saturated slackness, Chronixx is stimulating excitement in the global reggae community. His 2012 hit single ‘Here Comes Trouble’ reveals an impetus for the movement when he declares: “Jah people tired of mediocre.”

This talented 22 year old is kicking up a storm, getting a whole heap of airplay on IRIE FM, Jamaica’s most popular reggae radio station also broadcast live on subscription-based IRIEfm.net. The DJs play Chronixx mashups and  give plenty “big ups” to this rising champion of the Reggae Revival.

The LA show is expected to be a full house of reggae lovers and music makers who know they’re seeing an artist who puts the “world famous” in the Dub Club’s top rankin’ reputation.
