The seeds of CRYSTAL DAGGERS emerged in the mid-2000s when underground hip hop producers began adding dubstep, IDM, and techno elements to their music. At the same time, but separately, electronic music producers began spicing up their tracks with hip hop inflections. Somewhere near the dawn of the new decade, this trend took shape as a music of its own. CRYSTAL DAGGERS captures the lifespan of this music with sounds and patterns that run until the present day.
BREAKING THROUGH THE UNDERGROUND Mainstream electronic meets underground hip-hop in CRYSTAL DAGGERS. Grimy basses bend and shift through the dance floor, while airy, effected synths scatter through the air. Touches of R&B add an addictive melodic sparkle. And beats crafted with thunderous drums and glitchy percussion keep the crowd in motion. Sonic diamonds soaked in style – this is CRYSTAL DAGGERS.
