Chronixx Drops First Song & Video For 2021

Chronixx starts the new year with a fresh perspective on his new single, “Safe N Sound” (via Soul Circle Music). The eponymous luminary of modern-day Jamaican reggae and dancehall marks the first release of 2021. The track co-produced by Chronixx and Romain "Teflonzincfence" Arnett strikes hard with a foreboding bass drum rumble and slashes of viola. It pivots into a digital syncopation of booming 808 percussion and vibrating synth keys. Chronixx calls for an uprising during a dire time filled with hypocrisy and corruption. He declares the need for “more love flowing in the streets” and “evolution time.” He carries a timely  unifying message, yearning for the global community to feel safe and sound, especially in oppressed nations.
