About The Crystal Method
Heralded by the Village Voice as “one of the best live dance acts on Earth,” The Crystal Method-who is Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland-have been known over the last ten-plus years for their enduring dance floor anthems (“Now Is The Time,” “Keep Hope Alive”), airwave smashes (“Trip Like I Do”), a willingness to collaborate with an array of talent -including rock’s vocal elite, like Scott Weiland and Filter’s Richard Patrick. The duo has dominated the remix, film soundtrack, television, gaming and advertising worlds. Their platinum-status debut album Vegas (released in 1997) is one of the biggest selling electronic albums of all time, landing them in the top five of best-selling electronic acts in America. They scored the film London as well as the themes for TV shows “Bones” and “Third Watch” and were the first act to work with Nike for their running soundtrack series, but it’s Divided By Night-their 2009 studio album that takes TCM to all new heights.
