LargeUp Chronixx Start A Fire

Major Lazer Presents: Chronixx x Walshy Fire, Start A Fire: We were juiced to premiere this mix from Chronixxย recently, an artist little known a few months ago, and now the talk of many Jamaican and international reggae circles. Major Lazer picked him as the featured artist to launch their new “Major Lazer Presents” series of mixtapes spotlighting up-and-coming talent, spearheaded by Major Lazer MC and LargeUp family member, Walshy Fire, and he definitely did not disappoint. Start a Fire features Chronixx singing and deejaying over a variety of original and juggling riddims, classic reggae hip-hop instrumentals and Major Lazer productions like “Get Free” and Snoop Lion’s “La La La” (a/k/a Ken Boothe’s “Artibella”). It’s definitely a strong work that will be appreciated equally by Chronixx’s fans, and those just hearing him for the first time. Stream and download the mixtape below, and get the tracklist here. And remember where you heard it first!
