Methodrone members Christopher Kramer aka DJ Kramer and Scott Gockerman aka (sg) both grew up in small, suburban towns, and both felt the calling of the local metropolis and the beat of the drum. Kramer, a DJ and Scott, a live musician had never much thought of working in each others respective worlds, but what did bring the two of them together was a shared love of a music that could take you to a special place, and the belief that music is not just a thing, but a place for and of community. It was a chance meeting while the two were living in San Francisco that made Methodrone possible.

The Methodrone partnership proved to be fruitful from the beginning with their first week of production sessions resulting in an astounding 18 songs. In the ensuing year of bi-costal recording sessions, the team finished their first release "Nonlinear Reality", and music for a follow up is close behind.

DJ Kramer

Kramer started clubbing in his teens and began his career as a DJ in the mid 90 and has been active in the dance music industry ever since. Based in San Francisco, his professional DJ career has spanned over 10 years and he regularly performs around the US, Mexico and Central America. From residencies at Relase (SF), Moda (Cleveland), and Nectar (Cancun) in the Americas, to the legendary Deep End sound camp at Burning Man, Kramer has established an international reputation for his signature Tribal Progressive sound and energetic DJ sets. His solo productions have been release on multiple labels including Helvetica Noir, Knob Records, Lo-Rise Recordings and Transition Records.

A performer since schooldays, Scott moved to Chicago to begin working in studios and performing in clubs on the weekends. He was co-founder of the band Breather which immediately began recording and performing around the midwest, and released 3 records (one on Seraph). During a much needed break from performing & recording he spent the next 2 years living in San Francisco and ended up returning to a favorite place - the dance-floor. This return to the beat made Scott once again get the itch to reignite his music career and he headed for New York. It was only after he moved that he and Kramer ended up sitting one afternoon talking - and Methodrone was born.
