Built to party, impregnate and conquer the world, Kronic is Australia's most reckless entertainer. Fueled with Ciroc, Patron and an alarming disregard for personal safety, his electronically sequenced on-stage acrobatics take dj'ing to the next level, leaving crowds everywhere throbbing, engorged and yearning for more.Raised on tapes from AM and Rectangle, Kronic originally sported his hip-hop wares across house parties and boudoirs of Adelaide, wooing friends, foes and women with a west coast influenced take on musical curation. Mixing things up towards the end of the 2000's, his sound became more electric and diversified, with artists such as Chuckie and Afrojack finding their way into the mix. One morning, or afternoon (the details are pretty hazy), while laying hung over and besieged by a bunch of scantily clad women in a candle lit room, he realised that there's something in this dance music business. Sensing the imminent club music invasion, Kronic set his gold chains aside and hopped onto the glow stick electro-club revolution.Five years on, with tour supports for LMFAO, Afrojack, David Guetta, Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon notched into his bed post, alongside lanyards from Creamfields and a handful of Australia's biggest festivals slung over the door, it's obvious that Kronic has a penchant for picking the right track. Trading Adelaide for the sun, sand and single ladies of the Gold Coast, Kronic hooked up with fellow party enthusiasts Bombs Away, and transformation from mixtape DJ to party-proven producer began.Locking in some studio time along the way, with a handful of infamous mash-ups, mixtapes and bootlegs filling out his discography, Kronic delivered his debut release and Top Ten ARIA Club chart single - Looking for Some Girls in early 2012. Rich in synth, donk and sex sweat, the appropriately artistic video clocked over a million view within it's first 7 days before YouTube deemed it too hot for the internet's eyes. Taking it all in stride, Kronic is currently in the studio crafting the next generation of party-starting anthems alongside Seany B, FlyGirl Tee, Krunk, Uberjakd and more.
