After a 2015 rich in guest appearances (Joey Badass, Inner Circle, Major Lazer, Protoje & Maverick Sabre), Chronixx enters the new year with new music in the form of Roots & Chalice - a mixtape collaboration with renowned Brooklyn sound system, Federation Sound.


This collection follows the critically-acclaimed Start A Fire mixtape with Walshy Fire (Major Lazer) in 2012. Roots & Chalice is guaranteed to wet the appetite for the Spanish Town singer's highly-anticipated debut album planned for Summer 2016.

The new mixtape sees Max Glazer & Kenny Meez of Federation Sound compile more than twenty of their favourite tracks and freestyles of Chronixx delivering fiery lyrics & signature flow on an eclectic selection of beats. In addition to current hits unattached to other projects and reworking fan favourites from previous projects, Roots & Chalice features exclusive new songs either produced by the in-house production team (Zincfence Records / Special Delivery Music) or on classic instrumentals.

The first track lifted from Roots & Chalice is titled "Majesty". Studio One lovers will recognise the instrumental - Otis Gayle "I'll Be Around" (Sound Dimension / Studio One) - with added guitar provided by Nnamdi Robinson of Zincfence Redemption. The second song is "Spanish Town Rockin", an instantly familiar yet fresh take on Barrington Levy's "Prison Oval Rock" and third, thought-provoking "Sell My Gun" produced by Teflon & S.O.S of Zincfence Records. Never one to not share the limelight, the project also features guest appearances from Dre Island, Kelissa and Kabaka Pyramid and Eesah another member of the Zincfence family.

Chronixx rounded off a historic 2015 with the second staging of the landmark Capture Land Jamaica Tour which saw him performing in his home town Spanish Town for the first time and also visited Manchester and Falmouth, Jamaica. Continuing on from the groundbreaking Glastonbury performance last year, it was recently announced that Chronixx will perform at the Coachella 2016 in California, USA, as well as Wildlife & Parklife Festivals, UK & Love Box Festival, UK and more dates to be announced in Europe, Africa, West Indies, Japan and North America
