The Enduring Sounds Of The Crystal Method

The Crystal Method is an electronic duo (Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland) with more than twenty years of experience under their belt. Their 1997 debut with Outpost Recordings, Vegas, would become their best-selling record, earning platinum certification a decade after its release.

After the duo’s first two albums, they released Community Service, which was made up of remixes of songs by Rage Against the Machine, Garbage, P.O.D., and The Crystal Method themselves.

In 2005, The Crystal Method’s Legion of Boom was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Electronic/Dance Album category. It remains the duo’s sole nomination.

During the same year, the duo composed the theme to the popular Fox drama Bones and started a record label: Tiny E Records.

Today, The Crystal Method is revered as a pioneer of today’s EDM genre, and is considered to have paved the way for contemporary dance music. Community Service, their weekly Sirius radio show, keeps Kirkland and Jordan at the forefront of electronic music culture.

In 2014, the duo released their self-titled fifth studio album, which earned positive critical reviews and was noted for combining contemporary influences with The Crystal Method’s signature sound.

With a long trail of experience in film, TV, and video game music behind them, The Crystal Method have made an impact both in and out of the clubs. Their sole #1 on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart, however, remains 1998’s “Comin’ Back.”
