Mario Marino
Space Funk in a unique style

Luscious synths, amazing guitar work, and beats that are mixed perfectly. Combining elements from Past and Future, Chronic Ion creates soundscapes that are unique yet familiar. Bright, Punchy, but equally Dark and Mysterious. Every track brings it's own flavour and all of them delicious. Firemountain Funk is a personal favourite!

De Le Greed
A Harmonious Fusion of Funk, Guitar, and Synth Brilliance

Immerse yourself in a fusion of funk, guitar, and synth, where great progressions unfold seamlessly. Guitar and drums weaved together harmoniously. The synth speaks softly, whisperings of FUNK. As the rhythm breaks down, embark on a wanderlust of exploration with swift riffs and captivating synth progressions.

Get your electronic funk on! Chronic Ion combines many elements to create such a unique sound. Chronic Ion is its own thing that will leave you groovin, jammin, and spacin. It's the good stuff! It's a vibe all its own. The music could be in movies or video games or your car on a long road trip to an unknown destination. Looking forward to more sounds from this incredible artist.
