    FOX INTERACTIVE SIGNS THE CRYSTAL METHOD TO FUEL N20 VIDEO GAME SOUNDTRACK

    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.
