His musical arsenal includes Modular Synthesizers (Eurorack), Drum Machines, Turntablism & Scratching, Samplers, and the occasional use of E-Drums.
The EP embarks on a captivating exploration of Deep Dubstep and Dub music, maintaining a tempo of around 140bpm. CRONAM’s challenge was to expertly meld Modular Synths, Drum Machines, and Turntablism into a sound that thrives both within the studio and on stage.
Beyond his solo work, CRONAM actively contributes to the “Heuristics Berlin” Crew and the “Substrata” DJ collective. The “Heuristics Berlin” Crew orchestrates events at diverse venues throughout Berlin, creating platforms for “Forms of Entropy” and like-minded artists within the Substrata DJ Collective.
