Krystal Klear

Biography

Born and raised in Dublin, Krystal Klear has been making music his whole life, at first inspired by Hardcore Punk and Metal. He began playing lead guitar and gigging around Ireland. His major inspiration was always Boogie, Funk and Hip-Hop - leading him to create the Krystal Klear moniker in 2008.

Since early 2010, Krystal Klear has recorded an exclusive mix for the now defunct (but forever infamous) Mary Anne Hobbs BBC Radio 1 show, been chosen as a resident for the successful Hoya:Hoya club night in Manchester, toured the U.S.A (stopping off at Dam Funk's 'Funkmosphere night) and garnered love from XLR8R, Mixmag and Dazed & Confused. Brodinski, FACT Mag and Juno have all named him 'One to watch in 2011´ and recent shows in Hamburg, Amsterdam and London have garnered hype from the European audience.

Krystal Klear's contemporary take on Boogie/New Jack Swing pricked the ears of Cooly G who signed him for the debut A-side on her Dub Organizer label. The single 'Tried For Your Love' off All City Records was played 6 weeks in a row on Benji 'Bs BBC 1XTRA show and a collaboration with Olivier Day soul led to a deal from the tastemaking Eglo label. With remix commissions from legendary synth-pop bad O.M.D, The Count & Sinden, Lazer Sword and collaborations with Skream and Hudson Mohawke.

Being renowned as a firecracker live and a versatile DJ, his recent sets at the' Warehouse Project, Doldrums and The Producers House club nights playing everything from modern boogie, chicago house to Anita Baker have solidified his presence on the U.K club circuit.

Endorsed by Dam Funk, Hudson Mohawke, Skream, Joy Orbison, Brodinski, Toddla T, James Pants, Jackmaster and many more.
