There are so many great new things today that are simultaneously creepy yet wondrous and beautiful. One of them is that fact that it’s going to be almost 70 degrees here in NYC. The other is the band ADN’ Ckrystall whom I recently discovered. I had heard a few songs here and there but had never really sat down and listened to them at length. I just found the collection “Collected Works” and it has seriously blown my mind. I haven’t stopped listening to it in weeks.
I try to listen to other music, try to tear myself away, but I just keep coming back. I was at my parents’ house for the holidays trying to find excuses to sneak off and listen to it. I went to the mall, partially so I could get some art supplies, but also so I could rock out to it on my parents’ sweet car stereo.
ADN’ Ckrystall is French musician Erick Moncollin who has been creating really unique fantastical minimal electronic music since 1977.
“Collected Works” was produced in 2004 as a two disc set and has been out of print ever since as far as I can tell. According to Discogs only 100 copies were produced by MetaWaveClassix out of Germany, a sub-label of
MetaWaveMusic that specializes in re-releasing out-of-print minimal electronic and electronic avant garde music.
The albums included on the collection are the incredible Jazz Mad LP, In-Edit 7″, Museum EP and sessions, L’Appel du Vent tape, Rock Noire 10″, and studio outtakes.
Anna Logue Records just released the new ADN’ Ckrystall LP “Minilab” this past year.
So here it is, a holiday gift to the world. Its available for download in four parts since its quite sizable. Enjoy!
