Katie’s Corner: Lindsey Sterling’s Answer To Brostep – ReviewSeptember 30, 2012
From the moment I heard even the first 20 seconds of “Crystallize” by Lindsey Stirling I was stunned, in love, amazed, baffled, and addicted all at the same time. I’ve listened to this song at least 20 times now and not only does it never get out but it still gives me chills!! Every single time!!
Lindsey Stirling is a female violinist, musician, dancer, and composer from Utah who was a quarter finalist on the fifth season of “America’s Got Talent,” and was known as the “HipHop Violinist.” She likes to dabble in all genres of music from classical to hiphop to dubstep and more. And has worked with groups such a LMFAO and also done many soundtracks (Lord of the Rings for example).
“Crystallize” is obviously her more dubstep side and the girl more then pulled it off. I love the way Lindsey incorporates a real classical instrument with EDM. Her execution on “Crystallize” is flawless. The track starts beautifully with an Enya like melody, then has an amazing build and drops into a hard beat with filthy dubstep and glitch sounds fused with the alluring violin. It’s a very powerful track that you can feel inside your soul and a prime example of how far Electronic Dance Music has progressed.
Lindsey takes you for a journey with “Crystallize” that you’ll no doubt want to go on again and again. Whether winding down after a show, or just jamming out in your car or at home seducing little number track hits every mark.
