Not a fan of his comedy, but Fallon does always feature good music, starting with his house band.

To me this is a big deal because this is chronixx and not a marley, sean Paul, collieie buds or shaggy. This is real heartical modern reggae music and I feel it needs more of a platform and the late night show. Which I also be live is the most watched late night show provides that. Just think of the demographics that this performance will reach and then add YouTube. This is a big deal and big up chronixx and reggae music as a whole for this. My grandparents will watch this and understand a little more why I am always away around Father's Day every year and love reggae music so much. Giving thanks for this!

No disrespect to the marleys btw.

The reason pressure was on Wendy Williams is bc/ of his tune...and while the tune is definitely A little more mainstream, it's still a big tune. I seen it used for a united airlines commercial, so pressure is definitely bank rolling from this tune, which I'm sure he's psyched about as any artist would, especially when it's not straying from his ideals at all, but will definitely reach a more wide audience.

I admit in seeing the clip of him performing it made me think of him segueing into a tune like Ganja make the world go round or same I ah one, crowd would have been a little taken aback. Anyhow, it's the job of the artist to assess the crowd to see what type of tunes they'll be receptive to, and then try to broaden them some, but not necessarily bringing a huge ras tune to an audience that wouldn't know the first thing about it.

I got nuff respect for Pressure, we'll see what Chronixx a do

last night Jimmy Fallon talked about this and said he was really looking forward to it.

he said he went to JA recently and was hearing some selection where he was and the he got "here comes trouble, here comes danger" (Jimmy actually sang the hook) and he was shocking out... so much that when his phone's app failed to ID the tune he went and asked about it.

might be the tune he does?

'here comes trouble' is a wicked tune.. as long as its not performed in the same coonish manner as:

wow, this is great news!

and @bigvein - I agree the tune Pressure performed was "soft" and "touristy", but it was mainstream exposure nonetheless, which the man definitely needs because he is an under the radar talent, and is good for reggae overall..

Chonixx was totally awesome on Jimmy Fallong last night. It really makes me wish I was going to be in NY for the Central Park show this Saturday. Chronixx looked really sharp in a suit with his red, gold and green tam. His charisma was evident. My Jamaican husband glowed with pride.

Fallon referred to Chris Blackwell's hotel in Ocho Rios since that was where he was introduced to Chronixx'x music. The show rocked!

Re: Chronixx US network premiere: This coming Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

was MASSIVE... Big Up Chronixx for going into Modern Day Judas and Reverence as well. Big shout for the RIDDIM.. ROOTSMAN RIDDIM as well. Honestly VERY happy to see that this happened organically as opposed to Tessane winning the voice and getting her people some love. Fallon said he was in JA and kept hearing this tune... started dancing and playing tune... MASSIVE SHOUT!!!
Re: Chronixx US network premiere: This coming Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
July 23, 2014 05:50PM
yes.. loved how he gave some recognition to the Jesse royal and jah nine

also glad he didnt get up there and dance and shine.. as seen on that one love appearance from the early 90s.

the times are dread and his performance reflected as much.

Nice performance..

One of the few times I've seen a Jamaican reggae band play to tape (which is common among other genres)... Allows for a relativley small band to have multiple keyboard parts, extra drums (like the fill that comes in at certain parts that the drummer isn't playing), the horns, etc.

Would have been nice to have a larger band, but all things considered this was a very professional representation.

Kinda interesting to me that 2 of the biggest modern-day reggae anthems (Welcome to Jamrock & Here Comes Trouble) use riddims originally penned by Ini kamoze (World A Reggae & Wings With Me).

Might be time to bring out Komoze from the woodwork...

Not so impressed with the fallon thing. Chronixx is much better feeding off a real live energetic crowd. I saw a performance in germany which blew me away. I'm still not sure about all this hype though. Seems manufactured. As a live performer he is really something, maybe the best IMHO since Junior Reid. But was the EP really that great? I was disappointed. I wish him luck and godspeed. I'd love to see someone like him, a real conscious-minded roots reggae artist put reggae back in a positive light.
Re: Chronixx US network premiere: This coming Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

I agree...EP was underwhelming considering the hype
Re: Chronixx US network premiere: This coming Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
August 01, 2014 05:25AM
as far as the fallon TV spot goes...wow--I'm surprised at how moved I am to disagree or at least re-visit opinion on the performance.

if you expect to see chronixx generate the same vibes as if he is playing to 500 or more strong while in reality he is performing with his band on a TV set, to a TV audience, you are expecting orange juice while juicing apples.

I watched the set, and personally, although I am not from JA, I honestly still felt this very personal swelling of pride for this JA artist getting this HUGE opportunity afforded to very FEW deserving JA artists--vocalist, musician or band. I just felt so happy and proud for him. GOD BLESS.

in the beginning of the performance, I believe I saw signs of nervousness, and rightfully so. I have no doubt he knew the significance of the opportunity and felt the weight of the moment. and he handled it with amazing grace and professionalism. he was GREAT and was a great example of some current wicked JA music. think about how young he is -- and we are talking about the jimmy fallon show and this youth from JA. it's just incredible.

I was so impressed, and so pleased to see him get the shine. chronixx shoulda GLOW!

For what it's worth, I'm pretty late coming to the amen corner for this artist, but his visit to national late night TV via Fallen was a positive to me, both for performance and as you said, being able to see a conscious roots singer front & center in a mass media setting is a plus. And WELL Overdue. So here's to Chronnix, for his talent and levity.
Re: Chronixx US network premiere: This coming Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Overall Chronixx did good as far as his singing, but the performance did nothing for me. didn't feel like he brought much energy to the stage.....Nerves could explain the first moments, but even once the song got going he never really shined, to me at least. And i don't buy the "it's under 500" crowd size thing either, cuz we have all seen artists rock a show with only 50 people. I feel like "Here comes trouble" sounds like a song that is gonna have some "oomph" to it...... then the song drops and well..... I don't know. To me this is actually the weakest single on this riddim and it could be such a better song if it got reworked a bit... I mean he's saying "here comes trouble" but sings it so soft it wouldn't convince anybody that he is "trouble" in the slightest..... maybe it needs a rougher voice and ryhme pattern to compliment chronixx's syrupy vocals..... If only Buju were available to voice a verse for a remix...

Some of you will totally disagree with me and that's okay......

i think the delivery says 'when you think its peace and safety, its a sudden destruction'

kinda like when gregory said 'if i dont get my desires, then ill set your plantations on fire'

meaning, even though the delivery was silky smooth doesnt mean it was any less dread.

bottom line.. you dont get on national tv and symbolically tear up the popes picture(see sinead ocnner) if you dont mean what you say. and if you check the lyrics he did just that.
Re: Chronixx US network premiere: This coming Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Well I think a reason he was so subdued is the setting. You are one of the #1 late night shows in the world LIVE! If u go high stepping Anthony B style, guess what happens to the sound quality of your vocals? For a festy or a club show it's ok, u want the energy and interaction, but when u are trying to make a global name for yourself and your "music", you want the audio to be flawless. I could see in his eyes at the start that he was nervous as hell Who wouldn't be? Still loved it and the fact that it actually happened! Huge step for reggae, giant leap for Chronixx!

Yes I Danny Crucial! I posted a very similar comment yesterday but it got deleted in the server exchange. It was a tv stage, and anyone expecting a live concert-esque performance will surely be disappointed. I enjoyed it nevertheless, subdued vibe and all, especially when knowing the significance of it.
Re: Chronixx US network premiere: This coming Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
August 08, 2014 02:26AM
higrade1, I often agree with your posts but sometimes not, and that seems pretty natural with honest opinions. I think though that expecting a much higher vibes with this TV audience is out of range. yes, we've seen artists with 25 folks in attendance rock the place, but they all have time to build to that; chronixx had one tune. I've been to plenty of big vibes/small crowd shows, and they all took more than one tune to cross over. many more than one frankly.

mostly I just wanted to express my joy at what I witnessed on national TV.

big ups to highgrade1 and all reggae fans. really.

the siskel and ebert vibe of the thread is a trip, hehehe...

...Chronixx knowing the time, place and significance brought the ooomp and kicked up the vibe when he went into the Jesse Royal and the Jah9, then dubwise with the Zinc Fence...Dread and Terrible indeed*
