The Crystal Method

For nearly three decades, The Crystal Method has remained one of the most influential and well-respected acts in electronic music. Co-founded by Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan in 1993, the GRAMMY® nominated duo pioneered the big beat genre and popularized electronic music with mainstream audiences, beginning with their platinum-selling debut, Vegas (1997).

To date, The Crystal Method has played more than 1300 shows—headlining EDC, Lollapalooza, and Ultra Miami and touring with an array of acts: from Guns N’ Roses and Tool to The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers. All the while their music has appeared in more than 100 film, TV, and video game soundtracks.

That musical versatility also extends to an extensive discography of official remix partners, including Linkin Park, New Order, Hans Zimmer and the Doors. Along the way, TCM has released such best-selling titles as Tweekend (2001), Legion of Boom (2004), and Divided by Night (2009)—the latter two of which earned GRAMMY® nods for Best Dance/Electronic Album.

Kirkland and Jordan further revolutionized the genre with their Community Service continuous mix albums and then parlayed that format into the fitness space, partnering with Nike and Apple to create the groundbreaking Drive: Nike + Original Run LP.

They released their final album as a duo The Crystal Method in 2014. While Kirkland reimagined The Crystal Method as a solo act in 2017 following Jordan’s retirement, the momentum has never slowed — even during a pandemic. Now, after an unprecedented year, the innovative musician, producer, and DJ continues the evolution with The Crystal Method’s 7th studio album, and his second solo outing, The Trip Out.

Look for The Trip Out to be released on leading international electronic and dance music label, Ultra Records. “It’s really humbling,” says Kirkland, reflecting on his career to date. “I can’t really express how amazed I am that we’ve been able to take this idea of two hungry individuals with some synths, some drum machines, and a love for electronic music and transform it into a career that has lasted over 25 years.” He adds, “Above all, I’m very fortunate to have an enthusiastic fan base that continues to show up and support The Crystal Method’s legacy.”
