Born into an artistic family, son of a Dutch actress and Greek sculptor, Iason Chronis started taking lessons in classic and jazz music at the age of 6 and discovered mixing in his early teens using his grandmother's turntables and an old tape deck. As he saw footage of turntablists and hiphop DJ's in America and he soon began to dream and took up DJing in local clubs around his hometown of Amsterdam.
Fast forward to 2007 and Mason has had quite a strange year. After 'Exceeder' hit the clubs and festivals last summer he became the new kid on the block, with an incredibly hectic DJ schedule and a ream of praise for his production work from a range of DJs including Laurent Garnier, Tiga, Gui Boratto and Fatboy Slim.
In the last year he's rocked the cream of Europe's underground parties, including Fabric, Cocoon, Playtime, Sankeys and Melkweg, plus tours of Australia, China and Russia. In between these diary dates Mason has been working in his canal-side studio on lots of remixes and productions for a crop of Europe's freshest labels (including Great Stuff, Brique Rouge, CR2 and King Kong), of which many are still to be released.
At the moment Mason is adding his final touches to his debut album, scheduled for release in October. The sound is typically fresh with influences of italo, electro, techhouse and synthpop. Mason is also mixing the 'Electronation' CD (out this summer) celebrating the 5 year existence of the infamous Dutch Electronation parties which he is a resident of.
Mason is preparing for a crazy summer, where he can be seen on lots of festivals as a DJ, as well as doing live performances as 'Mason & The Maker'.
