CHRONIXX IS MUSICALLY MENTAL
Jamar ‘Chronixx’ McNaughton who has been busy churning out songs with real meaning (Warrior, Odd Ras, Behind Curtain and more) and who recently made appearances at Live In Kingston with Keida, Iba Mahr and more and at Kabaka Pyramid’s live event on the weekend was recently at Gee Jam Studios in Portland with Che Vicious (Grammy Award winning producer and currently Head of A&R for G.O.O.D music) and James Fauntleroy of Cocaine 80s working on upcoming projects. Cocaine 80s by the way is a serious collective comprised of NO I.D. (signed to Roc Nation), Common, Steve Wyreman (worked with Keyshia Cole, Mary J Blige to name a few), Rob Kinelski (worked with Eve, Swizz Beatz, Beyonce to name a few), Kevin Randolph (worked with Beyonce, Snoop Dogg and on the Kung Fu Panda Soundtrack to name a few), Makeba Riddick (worked with Rihanna on Disturbia, on 4 tracks for Beyonce’s Bday to name a few) and James Fauntleroy (worked on No Air – Jordin Sparks, Superhuman – Chris Brown to name a few). The artiste said he did a collaboration with Kelissa (sister to Camila and Jah Cure’s wife).
Totally immerse in his craft, Chronixx has been on a roll with a recent mixtape collab with Major Lazer. The story goes something like this. It happened that Major Lazer was in Jamaica to film Get Free and while in the bus, the camera man kept playing Chronixx’s music over and over, when asked why the camera man kept listening to the artiste, the camera man thought Lazor didn’t like it and was going to take out the cd, but as fate would have it, Lazer loved the music. A link was made with Walshy Fire and the rest as they say is history in the making.
The mixtape features some of the already known songs remixed and some previously unheard songs. When first released to the world wide web it garnered 10,000 views and 2000 downloads on the first day. Impressive to say the least.
