Chronixx on vinyl

Great to see more and more modern JA music getting pressed on good old 45s again, particularly by the good people of! Here's a pic of the Chronixx, who I rate very very high, 45s I've found and bought so far:

Chronixx - Ain't No Giving In (Chimney)
Chronixx - Here Comes Trouble (Overstand)
Chronixx ft. Sizzla, Protoje & Kabaka Pyramid - Selassie Souljahz (Royal Order)
Chronixx - Smile Jamaica (Silly Walks)
Chronixx - Thanks And Praise (Lifeline Music)

Tunes definitely worthy to be praised for quality and so worthy to be pressed! Keep 'm coming!

(some tuff tunes on the same riddims available as these by Chronixx and definitely worth picking up the 10" of Addis Pablo (son of) with melodica and dub versions to Selassie Souljahz in lovely picture sleeve)
