2) Dance group:
Alex Moerman & Paul Gorbulski, two of the currently most happening Dance producers in Europe, are the creators of Crystal Lake.
Their unique style is Hands Up – a mixture of Eurodance & Hard Dance, but always flavored with House, Trance, 80's, Rock or Electro elements.
In studio, Alex contributes the beats and sound design. He Used to play the drums and therefore has a great ability in creating the right groove for Crystal Lake's tracks.
Paul is in charge of the melodies and the lyrics. When Paul was a kid he used to play the violin, after training for 1 year he threw the violin against the wall and broke it! Guess that wasn't meant to be. After his unsuccessful violin experience Paul started taking piano lessons, which lasted for 8 years!
Crystal Lake was founded in Friday 13th 1999, since then Alex & Paul were busy breaking their own personal records, always aiming higher & higher towards their ultimate goal – Becoming one of the most influential dance music acts in the world.
Over the years Crystal Lake had numerous amounts of live shows, dozens of top chart positions, over 2 Million views on YouTube, their own radio show (Crystal Nation) with over 13,000 listeners and are regularly featured on compilations such as Dream Dance (Sony), VIVA Club Rotation (Ministry Of Sound) & Future Trance (Universal).
