THE CRYSTAL METHOD (USA)
The Crystal Method is a stand-alone electronic dance outfit. They have their own brand of electronica, stemming from a love of rock, hip-hop, electronic and soul. . The Crystal Method's Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland have helped re-establish America's place on the dance music map! Their first release contained such classics as "Now Is The Time", "Trip Like I Do" and "Keep Hope Alive" just to name a few. Their first album sold over a million and a half albums. They also scooped 3 awards - "Best Act", "Best Album" and "Best Single" at the 2004 Dancestar awards. They are influenced by bands like AC/DC and Led Zeppelin to Stevie Wonder and New Order - and you can tell. There is electricity in their grooves. Their latest album, "Legion of Boom" was released this year to a great response. They are spontaneous, defiant, intense, loud and occasionally insane! Arrive at Advent*jah early to catch the USA's best Electronic act.
