About Crystal Clear
Following early success with “Let’s Get Started” on Reformed (included on Andy C’s Nightlife 2 compilation) Crystal Clear soon found himself hooked on music production. Following a chance meeting with another rising star Xample the two set about combining their talents to, as he puts it “see what we could come up with”…
The result was the anthemic “Sister” released on Ram’s sister label Frequency and the critically acclaimed “Heaven & Hell”, part of the Dimensions EP.
Around this time Crystal came to the attention of drum and bass legend and Playaz aficionado DJ Hype. Seeing an artist with a good attitude and range as a producer, flipping from jump up bangers to smooth, liquid rollers he soon snapped Mr Clear up to join the Playaz camp and his debut “2Tone Sound” was released soon after.
Now an integral part of Hype and Pascal’s Playaz/Ganja roster, Crystal Clear has gone from strength to strength, working to forge a “solid sound” that’s earning respect from the highest quarters.
With club smashers “Cold Blooded” and “Streethawk” having sold out in a week, his much anticipated “175 Remix” having destroyed dancefloors nationwide and “Itzalot” receiving national airplay from the likes of Annie Mac, Grooverider & Mistajam, things are flying for Crystal Clear.
2011 saw dancefloor smashes “Heavy” (alongside Zen) and Pure Thought take clubs and radio stations by storm. In addition to this “Levels” (alongside long-time collaborator Stapleton) received extensive radio play, even getting a rewind by Huw Stephens on daytime Radio 1.
Known for consistently coming up with the remix goods Crystal Clear has undertaken such classics as “Only 1Life” by Ganja Kru, “Heavy Metal” by Twisted Individual and “Every Song” by Sarah Cruz. In addition to this his remix of Zen’s “Full Effect” was chosen as Grooverider’s rewind track on Radio 1…need we say more?!
Not just a producer, Crystal Clear is a DJ resident at Playaz @ Fabric and adept at working a crowd having graced the decks of clubs across the world.
