Once upon a time, somewhere around 1992, two people met at an
industrial dance club. One was very thirsty, so they asked the other
to get them some water. After the liquid reached the glass, the two
began a conversation, which became a friendship, and then formed a
creative union: Collide
The primary core of the
Los Angeles based duo is Statik and kaRIN;
Statik is responsible for the sound orchestrations and overall
production, while kaRIN takes care of the vocals and lyrics.
The essence of COLLIDE is the coming together of two opposing
entities to form a symbiotic whole;
combining the female and masculine energies, the cognitive
and the subliminal, the strength and the mystery.
Meaningful lyrics and alluring hypnotic vocals combine with an aural
sculpture to form an experience in listening that defies
categorization. "I think the reason why our sound is different is
because we do not approach music in a traditional way. We don't play
music; we try to create soundscapes -- layers of depth and sound."
To date, the duo have released eight full length CDs and a DVD
Collide’s music has been featured in many
NCIS scenes taking place
in Abby’s Lab, and their music is immediately identifiable to show
fans. “Head Spin” is
brand new from the band and is featured in the January 6, 2009
