TITUS “BAATIN” GLOVER Last Song, Friends Remember the Artist + Funeral & Media Coverage | REST IN POWER

The Crystal Method are back with one of the hottest grooves of the summer, with their song “Come Back Clean,” featuring Emily Haines (Metric) on vocals. Always on the cutting edge, the band is inviting fans and musicians to remix and re-imagine the song by releasing all of the songs instrument stems on IndabaMusic.com. Take Emily Haines’ vocals, Sam Maloney’s drums, and The Crystal Method’s instrumentals for an adventurous spin… and if the band picks your song as the winning mix, you’ll walk away with a killer prize pack, including time in the studio with the band, a miniKorg synthesizer and much more! Start remixing!
