Before the term EDM, The Crystal Method aka Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan were arguably the first true US dance music stars. Two decades since they formed, and following the release of their long-awaited self-titled fifth studio album, Kirkland and Jordan may well again be one of America’s most exciting electronic music duos. Their next release, the ‘Over It EP’, is a six-track collection of remixes of ‘Over It’ featuring Dia Frampton.
The new album is a celebration of the band’s 20 years together making electronic music and follows in the slipstream of their platinum-selling debut album, ‘Vegas’, their 2009 Grammy-nominated, ‘Divided By Night’ and compositions for film and television including Bones and Real Steel. The group decided to name their fifth offering ‘The Crystal Method’, as not only do they feel it is a defining release, Scott added “We hate coming up with album titles, and it was just easier to call it ‘The Crystal Method’ - it's a Walter White-approved name!”
‘The Crystal Method' album bears all the hallmarks of the group's electronic sound, as well as tackling new uncharted territory and combining it with a futuristic twist and pop sensibilities. It also features a broad range of collaborators including country singer LeeAnn Rimes, following a chance meeting in mid-air, Scars on Broadway’s Frankie Perez and Miami mainstay artists, Afrobeta, Nick Thayer and Mau5trap label artists Le Castle Vania. It debuted at No. 1 on US iTunes Electronic Album Chart.
The band’s new found popularity in the wake of America’s electronic dance music explosion sees The Crystal Method playing live for the first time in over three years, where they are combining traditional live show elements and keyboards with their very own custom build CDJ the "TCM 2000 Bass Odyssey".
