Aaron Smith – Dancin’ (Philip George Remix)
Originally released in 2004, “Dancin” was a club anthem across Europe and America, peaking at #21 on the Billboard Hot Dance in 2005.

Support quickly followed from high profile tastemaker blogs, with Indie Shuffle, Hilly Dilly, Music Ninja, Dancing Astronaut, and Your Music Radar getting behind their tunes. It wasn’t long before DJs like Junior Sanchez and Miguel Campbell began taking notice as well, and Krono were suddenly tipped for big things
Along with a set of strong remixes, the ‘Emphazed’ video (uploaded November 2012) reached nearly 1 million views on YouTube. Recently, Krono collaborated with Max Berga from the band Everywhere on “Eddie”. The single was subsequently added to the forthcoming album from the Swedish band. Krono are currently working on their debut album.
