Credited with bringing back reggae to the masses again, Jamaican star, Chronixx, will make a special appearance at Splore 2018.

Coming off huge sell out shows in Europe, Chronixx (Jamar McNaughton) is riding a wave after the release of his recent Chronology album.

Already a US smash, the album fuses old-school roots and lovers rock with contemporary dancehall, rap, R&B and EDM. The likes of Big Bad Sound and Smile Jamaica mix dub basslines with sunny, anthemic tunes. The current album follows on from his politically hard-hitting  2014 anti-colonial Capture Land. Chronology tracks,  Black Is Beautiful, Ghetto Paradise and Selassie Children address racism, Jamaican poverty and religious persecution.

Chronixx has been tipped by Diplo and Marley’s old label boss, Chris Blackwell, and it’s easy to see why. The dreadlocked son of singer  skips, dances and shadowboxes like a natural.
