Crystal Distortion is about change: The transformation of energy from one state to another akin to ancient healing methods involving minerals, but re produced in a modern environment using 'silicon processor' technology to re -balance the human 'psyche'. What better way to achieve this than through music and dance?
The Primary experiments of this kind were participated in by our resident 'ghost in the machine' 51m0n. A human 'by product' of electronic culture, he saw fit to re-align virtuous components of modern dance e.g. the rhythms of hip hop, breaks, tekno etc, with neo apocalyptic visions as portrayed in such cult milestones as 'Akira', ‘2000AD’, ‘Tetsuo’, and more recently, the story of the 'Matrix'
The result is a form of musical expression treading on the tightrope between sonic excess and universal love.
'Recycle 21' puts together 12 tracks recorded between 1997 and 2000. enjoy !
