PRE-ORDER NOW: TCM SIGNATURE VINYL BOX SETPosted on November 10, 2015
Throughout the past two decades, the musical landscape has continually merged, morphed, and matrixed, fractured in countless directions while intersecting at the most unexpected points. Electronic music underwent a renaissance in the aughts, rising out of the warehouses and blank spaces and overtaking the biggest festival fields in the world. THE CRYSTAL METHOD followed a similar trajectory since their formation in 1993. The Grammy Award®-nominated, platinum-certified trailblazing duo—Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland—set the stage for the genre-mashing electronic sounds that fuel the current zeitgeist. Now, their exclusive limited edition 20th Anniversary Signature Box Set houses this sonic story.
Including vinyl of their five full-length studio albums—Vegas , Tweekend , Legion of Boom , Divided By Night , and The Crystal Method —and an unreleased Rarities collection, it provides a comprehensive glance at their legacy thus far. They remastered each album and printed on high quality vinyl. Vegas and Tweekend boast their iconic and original out-of-production cover design while the album art for Legion of Boom, Divided By Night, and The Crystal Method are limited editions exclusive to this box set. All five double albums – plus the collection of rarities – totaling 11 discs in all, are packaged in a beautiful, numbered and autographed box. This extremely limited edition package is being produced and released personally by THE CRYSTAL METHOD. Orders are limited to 1,000. After that, this offer will never be repeated.
“Our fans couldn’t get a lot of our old vinyl,” Ken explains. “We would see copies of Vegas going for hundreds of dollars because they were out-of-print. In the last year, we thought, ‘Why don’t we do a complete box set of all our studio albums?’ Up until Tweekend, we did all of our mixes on digital audio tapes or DATs. We have a big collection of these that are numbered chronologically. While searching for the final “Raraties,” we combed through all of our old DATs. We had forgotten about so many cool tracks and alternate mixes, it was really cool to go back in time.”
“People kept asking us for that early vinyl,” adds Scott. “There’s something romantic about taking a record out of a sleeve, putting the needle down, walking away, and listening to an album. We love the process of writing an entire album. That’s something we want to preserve.”
