Throughout the past two decades, the musical landscape has continually merged, morphed, and matrixed, fractured in countless directions while intersecting at the most unexpected points. Electronic music underwent a renaissance in the aughts, rising out of the warehouses and blank spaces and overtaking the biggest festival fields in the world. THE CRYSTAL METHOD followed a similar trajectory since their formation in 1993. The Grammy Award ®-nominated, platinum-certified trailblazing duo-Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland-set the stage for the genre-mashing electronic sounds that fuel the current zeitgeist-making their headlining set in Milwaukee an anticipated NYE event. With the release of their album The Crystal Method Remixed mid-March, performances at Miami Music Week and a headline set at NY Comic Con’s Blade Rave, 2015 has been a rollercoaster for the esteemed duo. Currently the duo are offering an exclusivelimited edition20th Anniversary Signature Box Set which houses their sonic story. More info can be found at: http://bit.ly/tcm-boxset
