BIO

Is there Life After Conception?

There is a certain private country that fantastic music can transport you into. A place where your only required passport is a sense of adventure and the ability to listen intently. It is often in these climates that you can meet inhabitants with multi faceted aspects like Kronos, Habbit9, da-jits, and Code Poet. Four distinct personalities tightly wrapped in one burning mind.

Kronos’ life experience as a traveler from his original Haiti to Miami’s sunny shores and an extended stay in Israel and the Yucatan peninsula has certainly contributed an ethereal if not subliminal multi-nationalism to his music. At once Kronos draws influence from the 10hz resonance of a bass drum to the quiet intellectualism of groups like FSOL & Autechre and the synth driven hip hop beats of the mid 90s while maintaining soundscapes that are as individual as dawn. Couple this sonic alchemy with the fast forward world of his poetry turned lyric and new landscape emerge morph and engage the listener into a state of quiet introspection and self discovery.. Kronos is currently based out of Miami, Fl, producing Kronopol. The follow up to his acclaimed EP, kronopolis Rising- “States of Slumber!” Kronopol available summer 2009!

Following his own internal compass he continues to plot a multi-meteoric path through the minds of listeners and media.
