The Crystal Method (yes, named after what you think they’re name after) has been one of the clear-cut leaders in electronic music on a worldwide scale. They pretty much started a sound that became synonymous with 90’s ‘techno’ music. Together with The Prodigy, The Crystal Method composed the theme to the Matrix, that should give you a pretty good idea of what we mean.
Last year’s “Divided by Night,” album featured guest appearances by the likes of Matisyahu, LMFAO, Justin Warfield and Peter Hook. It proves that in the world of EDM, if you got skills they will ALWAYS shine through.
The last time they were at Glow (with MSTRKRFT) it was off the charts. People everywhere, bodies pulsing, utter madness. Saturday night is going to be nuts!! But hey, Glow on Crystal Method will do that.
A few years ago, George hung up his soccer cleats, picked up his headphones and started DJing. He says he’d found a new way to entertain the masses. Just as he loved making moves on the soccer field, he realized that he loved the thrill of making people move on the dance floor even more.
“It’s all about the house music … always will be,” he says.
And, with George, it has been “all about the the house music” — since he was a young boy.
“At the young age of 13, I began DJing alongside friends for graduation parties, sweet sixteen events, bar mitzvahs, weddings and house parties. As I grew older, I began to perform and travel to different places, performing at private events and competitions to develop recognition for the sole purpose of providing people with a reason to move and dance.”
In 2006, George enrolled at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C., which is where he gained experience, spinning at some of the hottest nightclubs in the Nation’s Capital — such as K Street, Lotus, Five and Indebleu. He says the way Washingtonian crowds embraced him motivated him “to produce the energy that he does with his music.”
As a producer, singer, MC… scratch that. As an entertainer, Don Diablo has been making some extreme waves ever since inking a deal with Sony in 2008. He worked on the Public Enemy “Bring the Noise/Give it Up” remix project with Ferry Corsten and Benny Benassi. Benny ended up winning a Grammy for the remix.
Some cool facts about Don Diablo:
He works alone in the studio… because he prefers to work in the nude. That’s right, homeboy sits in front his mixer butt ass naked and produces MONSTERS (no pun intended!!)
He won the award for “Best Dressed Man of the Year” in 2007 by Esquire Magazine.
If you want to buy him a drink while he’s spinning make sure it’s milk. That’s all he drinks during a performance!!
MTV shot a documentary on Don’s work for Dance4Life, a UN sponsored campaign to fight against HIV and AIDS in Africa.
And now you know… Slick like a gato, straight outta GQ, a humanitarian and wild ass electro-hop master. See you on Thursday!!!!

Joachim Garraud is one of a kind, that’s for sure. Trained classically, Garraud discovered his calling in electronic music in his late teen/early twenties. He was one of the first EDM artists in the world to incorporate live instruments into his DJ sets. He wanted to bring a true musical experience to the club.
He co-founded the ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ label. He’s been at it for the last 10 years; engineering, mixing, recording, receiving Grammy nominations and putting the brand on the map. His space-invaders-themed shows are legendary in Europe.
2010 sees an affiliation with ultra hip electro thump master Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label as well as a deal with Unlimited Productions (Tiesto, Corsten) that will take his Space Invaders themed DJ act to the next level. Get ready Glow!!!!
