THE CRYSTAL METHOD have kicked off 2014 by offering an advance listen of their fifth studio album, titled The Crystal Method, via Hype Machine. Marking the iconic act’s 20th Anniversary, the album is set for release January 14.

Stream now through January 14 at:

On The Crystal Method, THE CRYSTAL METHOD’s KEN JORDAN and SCOTT KIRKLAND explore various directions of electronic music. “While there’s plenty of hissing beats, belching production, squealing-breaks (and) keyboards for modern EDM heads to enjoy,” wrote Annie Zaleski of Alternative Press (Feb) in her review, “…the album is steeped in meticulous club music emphasizing silky grooves and sculptured adrenaline rushes.” Guests include LeAnn Rimes, Franky Perez (Scars On Broadway), Nick Thayer and mau5trap artist Le Castle Vania. “The Voice”’s season #2 contestant Dia Frampton (also known as one half of indie duo Meg & Dia) is the featured vocalist on the album’s first single “Over It” impacting radio this month.

Some notable answers:
"I think that trance has changed the overall structure and dynamic and linearity of electronic music. Before the records we were making in the early 90s there was no such thing as a breakdown."

"My favorite person to collaborate with ever is Peter Gabriel. He is so deeply inspiration, I learned more being with him and at Real World than being in any other environment."

Dave Seaman This Is Audio Therapy 2 small

To celebrate their tenth year in the business and with over 100 releases now firmly under their belt, Audio Therapy thought it high time they celebrated the story so far. This Is Audio Therapy Volume 2 is a collection of some of their finest works all of which have been deftly remixed by some of today's finest production talent.

Spread across two discs which contain exclusive full length reworks of classic Audio Therapy tracks from Infusions Legacy , Habershams Dryspell and Nick Muirs G Platz, Disc 1 is expertly mixed by label head honcho Dave Seaman where as Disc 2 is a bonus unmixed version with the tracks in their entirety. This release sets out to showcase the wealth and talent of the labels esteemed catalogue all of which have been diligently and painstakingly updated by the likes of Robert Babicz, Pig & Dan, Quivver, Charlie May, Gusgus, Glenn Morrison, Funkagenda, Guy J, Eelke Kleijn, Simon & Shaker to name but a few.

The tracklisting over both CDs is second to none and is bolstered even further by the addition of 2 totally exclusive tracks from Dave Seaman himself, one of which is a collaboration with legendary producer Josh Gabriel and the other being an unreleased remix of his own much lauded single Gobbledygook.

Dave Seaman commented, We've breathed new life into a catalogue we're very proud of and can only hope that the listening experience matches the enjoyment we had putting the whole project together. It's been one helluva ride. Here's to the next ten years. Acid house is dead, long live acid house.

Along with the double CD release, there will also be a full digital release in bundle and single format as well as a Limited Edition Vinyl run with some of the releases highlights.
