Kryder rode the bleeding edge into 2021, fusing VR, avatars, motion-capture, and CGI to take us on a monthly trip into his ‘dance anywhere Metaverse. Alongside digital concept house Conduit XR, he flipped the script on lockdown, brought the show to the audience, and delivered a reality-rivaling experience.
As it starts its second season (and in step with the release of his single-latest ‘Pleasure Or Pain’), the English DJ/producer levels up again, adding a new dimension to the Metaverse. Mirroring the shows’ punchy ‘no fillers’ festival ethic, today Kryder presents Volume 1 of his ‘Metaverse’ mix comp.
Each Metaverse is defined not by a genre, but by Kryder’s criteria, and amongst its most vital is sonic exclusivity. Every offering – be it show or mix comp – is comprised of music solely available to Kryder, who draws it from his Sosumi, Cartel & Kryteria label-wellspring. Through this new audio font (featuring the likes of Eddie Thoneick, Leykenda, Jora Ft. Reptile Room, Crusy, Lohrasp, and Clubwire), Kryder once again bucks classification. Skating in, out and through the galvanized house & progressive thrust, its music regularly backflips into tech, whilst flirting furiously with trance and a half-dozen other sub-styles.
In addition to ‘Pleasure Or Pain’, the album also brings the first contact with two more Kryder
creations, as ‘You & I’ – his pumping DEADLINE collab tag-team with the more brood some, but no less floor-centric ‘Crashing Down’ (w/Asymptone). If Kryder
’s music does have one defining feature, its hookiness, and ‘Metaverse Volume 1’ is all about that, bringing brain-dilating catchiness end-to-end. One listen and you can kiss the rest of your musical week goodbye, ‘Volume 1’ of Kryder Presents Metaverse hits today
More about Kryder’s Kryteria Metaverse: The virtual experience uses full-body motion-capture technology to capture Kryder’s DJ performance and then superimpose it onto an avatar in a virtual world.

In a saturated market of live-streams, the Kryteria metaverse is establishing brand-new music, giving producers a chance to get their fresh tracks heard for the first time across a true creative platform.
