Chronixx & Zinc Fence Redemption

Culture Music Events UK presents

Chronixx & Zinc Fence Redemption

Dragging roots reggae into the modern age, Chronixx is fiercely faithful to the genre’s traditions. He is one of the few modern musical exponents of Rastafarian culture. The Jamaican born Jamar Rolando McNaughton was formerly known as Little Chronicle, but has risen to fame as Chronixx. Music is in McNaughton’s family, his father had a singing career under the name Chronicle. After a spate of press attention last year, Chronixx is set to hit the UK backed by the Zinc Fence Redemption band, with a date at The Ritz in Manchester on 31st August.

McNaughton wrote his first song, named ‘Rice Grain’, aged five. He went on to go to high school in Spanish Town and started his recording career at 11. He carried on working, releasing a string of singles in 2011, until a break came in 2012, when he was featured on Major Lazer mixtape ‘Start A Fyah. Last year Chronixx began to build a much bigger following outside Jamaica with hit singles ‘Smile Jamaica’ and ‘Here Comes Trouble’. In October 2013, Chronixx was the subject of a Guardian article entitled Chronixx Puts Rastafarianism Back Into Jamaican Reggae. The article mentioned Chronixx’s now infamous performance at Usain Bolt’s Tracks & Records restaurant and said “it was Chronixx’s take on the roots sound that was touted as the jump-off point for a ‘musical revolution’ in his home country”.

Chronixx’s show at The Ritz this summer will give UK fans the opportunity to enjoy a night of roots reggae in its purest form. A live band, an anti-war message and calls for equality hark back to the origins of a genre that he believes shouldn’t be messed with.
