FOX INTERACTIVE SIGNS THE CRYSTAL METHOD TO FUEL N20 VIDEO
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 15, 1998) -- Bringing the interactive
experience into an amazing new realm of total
entertainment, Fox Interactive has signed premier U.S.
electronica music sensation The Crystal Method to provide
the first-ever complete soundtrack for its all-new
futuristic, high-tech video game N20: NITROUS OXIDE
available for PlayStation in June 1998.
The LA-based duo, world-famous among Gen X'ers for their
hard-driving break-beat dance music, will provide original
and selected remix versions of their hit songs "Busy
Child," "Keep Hope Alive," "Now Is The Time," "Trip Like I
Do," "Vapor Trail," "She's My Pusher," "Cherry Twist" and
"Comin' Back" -- comprising ten separate music tracks on
the N20 disc. Fans will be able to select any or all of
the songs to play continuously and in any order they
choose while engaging in this completely-original
visually-stunning, 3D space adventure.
"We couldn't ask for a better fit combining N20's
spectacular 3D graphics and cutting-edge gameplay with
songs by The Crystal Method, by far the hottest act on the
electronica music scene today," said Jon Richmond,
president, Fox Interactive. "These combined elements
create a completely captivating and exhilarating gaming
experience that clearly puts N20 in a class by itself."
"The Crystal Method and N20 are the perfect match in terms
of innovation and attitude," said Andy Gershon, partner in
Outpost Recordings, The Crystal Method's record label.
"The best in electronica music and the best in interactive
entertainment now come together in an association that's
practically tailor made."
Available on PlayStation nationwide in June 1998 from Fox
Interactive, N20: Nitrous Oxide is a 3-D interstellar
space-race shooter that showers players with an
electrified tsunami of light, color and sound. This
futuristic saga catapults players into a constantly
morphing psychedelic dimension, filled with flashing
lightwaves and shifting color patterns. There an evil race
of bug-like warriors is breeding inside a tubular
interplanetary freeway, filled with N20 gas. Players
speed through the tunnels in N20 fueled spacecraft,
collecting points and building an arsenal of laser weapons
in their quest to obliterate the demonic species.
Currently on a sold-out European tour, Outpost/Geffen
recording artists The Crystal Method expand the boundaries
of the blooming electronica dance music genre with
confrontational keyboard melodies and infectious,
funk-fortified beats. Their current album, Vegas, has
been heralded by critics worldwide, spawning three hit
singles and gracing BILLBOARD's Hot 200 album charts for
more than 22 weeks.
