Free Music From The Crystal Method, Barack Obama

In support of Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, The Crystal Method has released a new remix of their dance anthem Now Is The Time.

The Vote ’08 Remix features samples from Obama’s DNC acceptance speech, and is available as a free download from the band’s website. An email address is required to download the free track. 

“Like 38 million other Americans, we were transfixed listening to Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. It reminded us of the creative process we went through all those years ago, listening to samples of inspiring old civil rights speeches and creating the original ‘Now Is Time,'” said Crystal Method’s Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland in a statement.

“We don’t often revisit old songs but we’ve been spending so much time looking forward as we work on our new album it seemed appropriate to take a minute to look back at the beginning. Plus, right now no American could be hurt by hearing another inspiring message.”

  1. When will i am did it, it was an original idea. now that Dave Stewart and fuck knows who else has done it, it’s just lame bandwagon jumping. Of course I was starting from the position of hating the Crystal Method, and nothing about this track changes my opinion.

    What can you say about a group that takes the worst tendencies of west coast breaks and trance, and then layers on a bunch of tinnitus-inducing high frequency twittering? The way they stutter and twist up Obama samples too is really annoying too.

    I’m an Obama fan, and hey if they get a few meth-addled club kids to vote, great. But lets not pretend for a minute there’s anything else redeeming about this track.
