All Music Guide:
A Netherlands-based DJ, Mason (Iason Chronis) first became interested in the world of the DJ as a youngster. As a teenager, he was DJ-ing for friends at parties, and eventually he graduated to the club world, becoming a resident at Electronation. He toured extensively in Asia and Europe, and in 2006 landed a U.K. (and Continental Europe, for that matter) hit single with the track, "Exceeder." He was also a violin player, and his skills were enough that he was able to perform in such a manner with DJ Tiesto. In 2009, Mason launched his own label Animal Language and released several double A-side singles including "Front Row Chemistry" and "The Amsterdam Tapes." In 2011, he released the album They Are Among Us featuring guest performances by such artist as Kurtis Blow, Sway, Sam Sparro, and Roisin Murphy.
