Chronixx Chronology (PBS Feature Record)
“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 on his label Soul Circle (Virgin/Universal distribution). They tell the story of a young Jamaican music prodigy whose conscious views of the world continue the legacy of reggae’s forebearers, 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. 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 Llamar 'Riff Raff' Brown, Dean Fraser, Stephen McGregor (amongst many others) all contributed to the album. Across the map, British drum & bass band Rudimental, London-based Utters and NYC’s Federation Sound round out this dynamic product.

DEAFCULT Auras (featured on The Breakfast Spread)

Auras is a record about dreams: the ghosts of people, the places and situations from the past that haunt your dreams (or stop you from having them all together). It reflects on romanticised memories as a disaffected teenager in the suburbs, tales of love, drugs, death, and the overwhelming feeling of finding yourself but still feeling completely lost. The 12 songs that make up Auras are wrapped in noisey guitars, blunted drums, fuzzed-out synth and soaring vocals. While on paper it might sound initially abrasive, there is an overwhelming sense of gentleness to DEAFCULT's music that you find calm in, even when they push past the boundaries of abstraction - even when you find yourself deep in Auras most distorted moments.

Formed in in 2015, the members of DEAFCULT came together after playing in much-loved Brisbane bands The Gifthorse, Nuclear Summerand and Roku Music. Following the release of their self-titled debut EP in 2015, they scored the standing of Independent Artist of the Week on FBi Radio, with Happy noting “a rawness to their sound that is reminiscent of the early days of Sonic Youth.”
