Crystal Distortion

Crystal Distortion

Since 1991 Crystal Distortion has been at the forefront of live musical experimentation. With seminal releases under a variety of aliases, he was signed to Rising High records in his teens. As a member of Earth Leakage Trip, he made the first Moving Shadow record: Psychotronic EP (cat# SHADOW 1) on which is the all time classic: No Idea.
On joining the Spiral Tribe Sound System, he played a key role in defining its musical direction. Pushing the envelopes of production and performance alike, he rapidly became one of the most acclaimed live acts in Europe. He has put a highly individual stamp on almost every electronic style of the last twenty years, and his extraordinary ability to bend technology into new spheres has made him an iconic figure.
With over 80 single releases, 4 albums, numerous sample packs and custom sound design projects behind him, Crystal Distortion is perhaps best known for his improvised live sets. Systematically sidestepping categorization with flashes of controlled chaos and alchemical spins on stylistic orthodoxy, his sets balance pulsating energy with the surreal. Today, Crystal Distortion’s live set is a unique experience. His trademark moments of mayhem and infectious grooves propel dance floors past the frontiers of regimented normality to explore the sonic spaces beyond.
