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 the Playaz roster and under the guidance of DJ Hype himself, Crystal Clear has gone from strength to strength, working to forge a “solid sound” that’s earning respect from the highest quarters.
On Crystal Clear’s production, benchmark producer Dillinja told us “I’m hearing good things from him, he’s definitely got his ears open, good work!”
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.
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 “Maximum Style” by Tom & Jerry. 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?!
Feeling that the time was right to launch his own imprint, Summer 09 saw the launch of Cold Blooded Recordings. This culminated in the debut release "Bangers N Mash", championed by the likes of DJ Hype, Hazard, Bassline Smith and Brockie.
Not just a producer, Crystal Clear is a DJ resident at Playaz @ Fabric, London and adept at tearing the place down having graced the decks of clubs across the world.
