Chromatic Sound has become one of Jamaica's premiere dancehall collectives over the past few years. The "unruly" squad is known for shelling dances, not only in Jamaica but also bringing their one of a kind forward-thinking dancehall parties to the world. Recently featured in Fader magazine, Chromatic Sounds consist of DJs Creep Chromatic (Popcaan's official DJ), Heavy D (the former official DJ of Vybz Kartel), Shantonio Chromatic and emcees JR Chromatic and Niko Chromatic.
The crew is one of Jamaica's newest "taste-makers," especially in terms of style and freshness. Their street-style mixed with a fashion-forward aesthetic has attracted fans from near and far, including Angelenos in the know. Creep Chromatic recently performed a signature dancehall set in LA's DTLA Arts District at the Boiler Room x Mixpak event. The crew has been able to enhance their brand through the use of talented photographers who have an eye for capturing the crew's upful energy.
Heavy D is keeping the brand's appeal blazing with his latest mixtape titled "Winning the Mixtape." The tape captures dancehall in 2016, and is best described as an amalgamation of up-tempo dancehall riddims and big tunes, including Torey Lanez "Luv," and a plethora of remixes.
Definitely not a tape to miss, it is being shared by other global dancehall ambassadors such as KickRaux and already has over 11,000 plays. Listen to "Winning the Mixtape" here on KingstonToLA:
