Moncton, New Brunswick native Ben McGillivary aka CRYSTΛLIZE began fooling around with FL Studio back in the summer of grade 11 when he was 16, where he first started “making” house tracks. He didn’t really know what electronic music was but was very fascinated by it and wanted to learn more. He went to university for two years, one at University of Lethbridge, in Alberta, developing his Sound Engineering skills, then studied a year at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, developing his sound design and production skills. He, then, decided to take a year off this past year to learn Electronic Music through and through.
Fast forward to present day. He recently won a weekly contest run by Borgore and had his remix of Rick Astley released on Buygore Records’ Soundcloud, which got him a lot of promotion! Only bigger things will happen from here on out for Crystalize. Keep a close eye on Crystalize because in 2014 more artists and songs will be…. crystalized.
So far in 2014, Crystalize has been tearing it up! With collabs with artists such as Rydall, Instant Party!, and Roxul, Crystalize has become a more unique artist. He has recently signed with All Mine LA and couldn’t be happier with how 2014 has shaped up so far. With the help of All Mine LA, he has been honing his sound into something special. You best be on the lookout for Crystalize and All Mine or else you will be crystalized.
