The Crystal Method
The Crystal Method
For more than two decades, The Crystal Method has remained at the forefront of theworldwide dance music industry as pioneers of the big beat genre, innovators of the‘90s electronica movement and current-day global ambassadors of the Americanelectronic sound. Originally formed as a duo, alongside now-retired founding memberKen Jordan, The Crystal Method today lives and breathes as a solo act, with co-founderand originator Scott Kirkland at the helm. And with the artistic reboot comes the nextchapter in The Crystal Method timeline: The Trip Home, out September 14 on theband’s own Tiny E Records.As the sixth full-length The Crystal Method album and Kirkland’s first as a newfoundsolo act, The Trip Home serves as the creative rebirth of the brand. An artistic manifestoand love letter to the electronic world, The Trip Home welcomes Kirkland at the driver’sseat with full control of the reins.The Trip Home is co-produced with veteran producer/remixer/composer Glen Nicholls,who has worked with legendary artists like The Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails, Sia andUNKLE, among many others, in addition to scoring several of his own feature films.For the new album, Kirkland dove deep into the decades-spanning discography of TheCrystal Method. The result is a sound that revisits the roots of the classic CrystalMethod aesthetic, while pushing its possibilities into the future. Equal parts throwbackand dynamic futurism, The Trip Home expands Kirkland’s unrestrained curiosity intonew realms and new sounds.To perfect this fine balance, Kirkland took a back-to-basics approach, which saw himfiring up his arsenal of analog synths and reconnecting with his collection of vintagegear. The lead single “Holy Arp” captures this calculated formula perfectly: A broodingintro of darkly tinged bleeps and bloops slowly builds the song’s tension before it poursinto a bed of chunky synths, distorted reverb and alien sounds. Its minimal, vocal-lessmelody allows space for the synths to expand and reach a high peak beforedisintegrating into the ether.
