Crystal Distortion – Hardtek
This pack was created and inspired by the best sounds and loops I crafted for my recent world tour with SP23. The sound design and performances started on a beach in Sri Lanka , a nightclub rooftop in Colombia, a temple city in Mexico, and a forest in Canada while attempting to photograph the Yeti.

Since 1991, Crystal Distortion has been at the forefront of live musical experimentation. With seminal releases under a variety of aliases, he was signed to Rising High records in his teens. As a member of Earth Leakage Trip, he made the first Moving Shadow record: Psychotronic EP (cat# SHADOW 1) on which is the all time classic: No Idea.
With over 80 single releases, 4 albums, numerous sample packs and custom sound design projects behind him, Crystal Distortion is perhaps best known for his improvised live sets. Systematically sidestepping categorisation with flashes of controlled chaos and alchemical spins on stylistic orthodoxy, his sets balance pulsating energy with the surreal.
Today, Crystal Distortion’s liveset is a unique experience. His trademark moments of mayhem and infectious grooves propel dancefloors past the frontiers of regimented normality to explore the sonic spaces beyond.
