L.A.’s Crystal Technique were known as America’s response to the Chemical substance Brothers. A dance-based digital duo using a definite rock-band feel, the evaluation seemed appropriate, though it tended to erase what produced the group distinctive: a good bottom in American hip-hop, rock and roll, spirit, and pop. Produced in 1993 by Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland, Crystal Technique was the longest-running stay in a string of tasks that led them off their native NEVADA (plus some forgettable four-track stabs at vocal home music), towards the early-’90s L.A. rave picture. Used by its fresh idealism, Jordan and Kirkland became utilized by L.A.’s underground membership culture and started knocking out monitors motivated by their encounters. On the effectiveness of among their demos, Crystal Technique agreed upon to Steve Melrose and Justin King’s Town of Angels imprint in 1994, and their debut one, “Keep Wish Alive,” made an appearance immediately after. The name is at mention of L.A.’s waning rave picture (burdened by regular police pressure along with a string of random violent situations) and became something of the anthem because of the countless barrage of remixes and alternative versions that made an appearance. The pair’s demand to be studied seriously like a music group (instead of the enforced anonymity of all techno acts, then one of a fresh concept for American dance makers) prolonged to incessant live shows, and Crystal Method’s raising recognition both in the night clubs and among radio jocks resulted in a cope with Geffen affiliate marketer Outpost Recordings in 1996. The group’s debut LP, Vegas — an unabashed party record bathed in acidity, funk, rock and roll, and big defeat hip-hop — made an appearance in middle-1997 and offered perfectly. The follow-up Tweekend premiered four years later on, as well as the duo inaugurated some mix albums, entitled Community Assistance, in 2002. Third recording Legion of Growth adopted in 2004, and their soundtrack towards the film London got a year later on. In 2006 released Travel. The blend was designed to accompany any aspiring athlete’s workout program and was re-released on Compact disc in 2008 with four reward tracks. In ’09 2009, they released Divided by Night time, the first recording to be documented in the duo’s state-of-the-art documenting studio room, Crystalwerks. A self-titled, fan-funded recording — one which embraced their part in the advancement of EDM — found its way to 2014.

Formed in 1993, they did most of their earlier production work in an underground shelter lovingly referred to as "The Bomb Shelter" in the front yard of a rent house they once shared as roommates.
Before production began on Legion of Boom in 2004, they moved the studio into the garage of the rent house; many people aren't aware of this, however, and still believe they work in the actual "bomb shelter", now a nickname for the studio setup.
