Chronixx Celebrates Fifth Anniversary Of ‘Dread & Terrible’

Image result for ChronixxThis Friday, Jamaican reggae star Chronixx re-issues the deluxe edition of his seminal project, Dread & Terrible (via Soul Circle/Seed Distribution) on its five-year anniversary.

This re-release contains 11 tracks, such as his now-certified classics Here Comes Trouble, Capture Land, and Spirulina.

Another standout is the previously unreleased Jah Is There, which he produced.

The song was intended for Dread & Terrible, but did not make it in time for production. The introspective track is accompanied by an animated lyric video by artist Tom Kariv.

Since Dread & Terrible broke into the Billboard Top 200 (No. 179) in August 2014, and topped the reggae chart, Chronixx has become one of the most critically acclaimed artistes of the past five years, while setting the tone for today’s generation of conscious reggae artistes.

Chronixx, whose given name is Jamar McNaughton, made his breakthrough television debut on ‘The Tonight Show’ starring Jimmy Fallon in the summer of 2014.

It was a pivotal moment that introduced American audiences to his wise lyrical stylings.

The spotlight is back on Chronixx, anchoring the remix to Ed Sheeran’s I Don’t Care, featuring Justin Bieber and Koffee.

Together, Chronixx and Koffee, the buzzing newcomer he has taken under his wing, put their Jamaican birthplace of Spanish Town on the world’s radar on Sheeran’s new summer anthem.

Chronixx will be headlining both Uganda’s Pulse Jam Fest on Saturday, June 29, and the annual Reggae Sumfest concert in Montego Bay, on July 19.
