Mason releases fourth album ‘Chroma Panorama’ 


Chroma Panorama is the new LP from the genre-bending Mason, dropping in a heavy shower of multi-coloured musical droplets. On this, his fourth long player in a career spanning over two decades, Mason once again demonstrates his quirky versatility, craftsmanship and disregard for the musical zeitgeist.

Not many dance music artists had such an unusual career path, stretching from being a kid TV star to Tiesto’s touring violinist to pop chart hit maker to guerrilla party organiser to one of the most productive and collaborative producers of the lowlands. Mason does it all, becoming one of the true gems of the European electronic music scene. 

Chroma Panorama takes a journey through cerebral urban pop, 80’s sex jams, indie tinged house, sprinkled with funk and soulful downtempo vibrations. The fourteen tracks include guest appearances from the likes of Dragonette, Sweetie Irie (Gorillaz), Brit award winner Jack Garrett and Zero 7 chanteuse Sophie Barker. There are also guest voices from members of The House Gospel Choir and UK indie pop favourites Girl Ray. 

Making an album really suits my needs to just create anything I want without being constrained to boundaries, genres or tempi. I love DJ-ing with all my heart, massively, but as a producer to only write music for dancefloors I find a bit limiting. I just like to do more. I’ve been really enjoying diving into the deep end of the song writing process and just going with the flow. I have to say, I’ve been one lucky bastard being able to work with such a talented bunch of artists as I have on this album.


This guy has created chart topping records, music for Dior and Hugo Boss and countless underground bangers. Whether laying down sweaty club DJ sets around the world to touring his live ‘Mason & The Masonettes’ show, this musical polymath is always shifting colours, and blurring boundaries. In short, Mason is always keeping things interesting for himself and his audience. 

Mason marks the release of his fourth long player in a celebratory shindig at Ministry of Sound, London, on Friday 17 November. The Dutchman will be stepping into the foray of Ministry’s regular Friday night FUTURE, with sets also coming from Norwegian brothers KREAM, and house-techno duo, Pax.

It’s been several years – since 2015 to be exact – that Mason played at Ministry of Sound. His relationship with the label dates back to 2006 when it released his worldwide hit ‘Perfect (Exceeder)’ with American rapper, Princess Superstar, which charted all over Europe. Tickets are on sale now from £15 at
