Caramela

Milan-Based Producer Ckrono Readies First All-Italian Baile Funk Banger

Baile funk from Italy? Yessir! "Italy's most innovative tropical bass producer," aka Ckrono, just dropped his debut single "Caramela" on Daniel Haaksman's Man Recordings and is poised to leave his mark on the global club circuit. Formerly hailing from Florence, Ckrono moved to Milan in 2017, where he launched his "Balera Favela" tropical bass night, which meanwhile attracts a rough 1.500 visitors per event and is steadily creating a niche for these booty-laden sounds. 

Earlier this year, Ckrono revved up his engine in collaboration with Milan-based producer Mace and São Paulo's MC Bin Laden for a track called "Vroom Vau" on Diplo's Mad Decent label and earned coveted slots at festivals and clubs across Europe. Now backed by Florence's MC Ninjinho, Ckrono unleashes the shrill "Caramela", "the first official baile funk tune sung entirely in Italian." The track refers to everyone's favourite sweet, but also allude's to marijuana and, of course, sex. 

Like of rush of sugar to the head, "Caramela" is quick to reveal its potent punch and will no doubt set dance floors ablaze. The release comes equipped with a club mix and dub version. Watch the flashy companion video below and feel free to work it. After all: "E' tempo di muovere i culi!"
