ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Krystov has been referred to as a "production guru" and a "master at the art of experimentation" [music.download.com editor]. Through the years, his music has been compared to the likes of Amon Tobin, Squarepusher, Aphex Twin, Atari Teenage Riot, and Bogdan Raczynski, to name a few. Despite these comparisons, Krystov manages to maintain an original, eclectic sound that, while obviously exploits technology to the fullest, is still founded in melody and connects to the listener on an organic level. "DWORD" is Krystov's first commercially available domestic release, although it is his fifth solo album in the last three years.

Damien Krystov began composing electronic music in 1989 at the age of 14. Between 1993 and 2000, he maintained an ongoing solo industrial electronic project entitled "Prey to God." In 2001, he dropped that moniker, and embarked on a new journey of electronic expression, which has evolved into a complex hybrid of different musical styles. Employing an arsenal of hardware synthesizers, drum machines, and effects processors, guitar, and software synths, samplers, effects processors, and other sound manglers [including custom software that he writes to further explore sonic possibilities], Krystov achieves a very emotive and interesting sound that words alone cannot properly describe. It must be experienced to be understood. He calls his music "the soundtrack to my dreams brought to life in my waking hours."When not in the studio writing and recording his own music, Krystov is working with other artists co-writing, producing, engineering, and remixing.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Even though over time, electronic music has tended to lean towards a consistent, baseline approach, making the discovery of innovative albums which still manage to bend and warp expectations more challenging, the artist "Krystov" has definitely jumped off the page and made an album of noticeable creativity. Standing out in his open-minded experimental use of anything and everything at his fingertips, he manages to always blend and combine distinctly different- even opposite- music styles and sounds in ways that while feeling heterogenous, fall together perfectly, much like the organized chaos of a kaleidoscope. Random colors and shapes fall where they will, mixing differently with each different perspective you take, and yet, all along there is still a sense of an overall picture holding together miraculously. Even with echoes of Aphex Twin and Squarepusher, "Dword" stands on its own as a noteworthy experimental album.

Beautiful and creative IDM
At times frentic and fast paced, at times relaxed and slowed down, at all times innovative and cerfully crafted. I enjoyed it immensely.

Victor Rikowski
