A world of sound at her fingertips, Khromata stands in the vanguard of storytelling and sensory manipulation in the modern era. With a finger on the pulse of the global psychedelic electronic scene, she draws the essence of tech-driven music to the surface with DJ sets inspired by the sounds of the underground.
Khromata brings her versatile and spirited approach of sound weaving to Iboga Records as their U.S label DJ. Driven by fun, energy, and technical purity, she cannot be summarized by any single set or sound, making every Khromata performance an intoxicating, one-of-a-kind experience.
