Blazing mixtape from Chronixx and Federation Sound

chronixx-Roots-and-Chalice-CoverAfter a successful 2015 – performing with Major Lazer, Inner Circle, Joey Badass etc – Chronixx releases a killer mixtape in collaboration with Brooklyn’s own Federation Sound. This set follows Chronixx Start a Fire mixtape, produced by Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire and put out in 2012.

Roots & Chalice – which is available for free download – is slightly less eclectic and more vintage flavoured compared to Start a Fire and Chronixx voices a number of immortal riddims, including Prison Oval Rock, Cuss Cuss and I’ll Be Around. The mixtape also features several exclusive new cuts, such as Majesty, Spanish Town Rockin’ and Sell My Gun, along with guest appearances by contemporaries like Dre Island, Kelissa and Kabaka Pyramid.

Chronixx debut album is expected in the third quarter this year and judging by this excellent mixtape it might be a landmark set.

Natalie Storm spices it up

Dancehall singer Natalie Storm is for me best known for her work with Ward 21 and her take on the Fyah Wyah riddim. She has also voiced bashment and funky house, tunes that I’m not familiar with.

Her next excursion is a mixtape produced by Federation Sound and Prodigal Entertainment. The mixtape bears the raw name Songs 2 F@*k and Fight 2 and will hit the streets in three weeks.

As a teaser the producers are now unleashing a goodie to heat things up. And they certainly are.

Feel Up is pure sex. It’s downright filthy. Especially the bass line, which is bad, and I mean really nasty. It’s naughty and makes you want to whine your waist all night long. If Barry White was a bass line he would sound like this.
