Background

Early career (2006–2007)

Hyper Crush, composed of three former Agoura High School students, began with Donny Fontaine (born Steven Gone) and Preston Moronie (born Patrick Ridge). [4] The duo started out as a Doo-wop group named the Bel-Airs, but their name, musical style, and appearance changed later to reflect their interest in electronic and synth-based music from the 1980s. [5] When they sought a female vocalist to go along with Fontaine, their long-time friend Holly Valentine (born Angelina Araya) took the job. [4]

The group first gained widespread exposure through their Myspace page. They began playing shows in Los Angeles and other places in and around California. In late 2007, they released their debut, Mixtape Volume 1, which contained 31 original Hyper Crush songs. [6] Along with the mixtape, they also released independently-made music videos for "The DeLorean" and "Slow Motion".

Both musically and in their appearance, Hyper Crush makes copious references to the decades of the 1950s and the 1980s. [7] Common examples of these references include the Nintendo, popular arcade games from the 1980s, Technicolor, Hypercolor clothing, the DeLorean, and Sega Genesis. Sounds from Nintendo's Duck Hunt game begin the song "The Arcade" and music from The Legend of Zelda end it. In addition, their fans are called "The Zapper Gun Gang," which is derived from an NES Zapper reference made in the lyrics of "The Arcade." During live performances, Fontaine often wields a modified laser shooting version of the 1989 Nintendo Power Glove. [8]

The Arcade (2008)

The Arcade , released on May 1, 2008, was the debut album of Hyper Crush, and the follow-up to Mixtape Volume 1. The album featured 13 songs, 2 of which had been previously released on the mixtape.

At the CD release party hosted by Hyper Crush, they also premiered the video for "The Arcade", the title track of the album, [9] although it was not put online and made viewable to the public until June 30. [10] The video was a joint project of Six29 Entertainment and A hill Productions and was directed by Mickey Finnegan. [10] It was Hyper Crush's third video, but the first one to be professionally done.

Signing with Universal Motown & Mixtape Vol. 2 (2008–2011)

In early November 2008, Hyper Crush signed with Universal Motown. [11] They said in a 2008 interview for BVTV (Bella Vista High School in California) that they had a new album coming out and it was "almost done." It was mentioned that since their first album was independently released, they would re-use about 8 of the songs from The Arcade and the rest of the new album would be new songs. They also stated that they don't have a final name for the new album, then added, perhaps facetiously, that Bella Vista Rocks The Arcade was the working title. [12] In another BVTV interview, in 2009, the band said they were still "mixing down" the album and hoping for a release that summer. [13]

Hyper Crush released the video for "Robo Tech" in late February 2009. This was their fourth video and second video to be professionally done. It was directed by Mickey Finnegan, as was "The Arcade".

The delays in releasing their second album incited the band to release some material through a different channel, and they released their second mixtape on the Internet on June 26, 2009. Valentine spoke about the mixtape: "We wanted to make something cool to put out, especially because our album seems like it's taking long to people... We were like, 'Okay, it's hard to put the album out so we're gonna put out a 21-song mixtape.' Making new music is important to us and we want to give that to our fans." [14]

Hyper Crush released the first single off their upcoming album on September 17, 2009, titled "Keep Up" with Tommy Henriksen co-producing and co-writing the track with Hyper Crush. On May 21, 2010, the group held a video premiere party at The Roxy for "Keep Up," openly inviting fans to join them via Twitter. They released the second single "Ayo" featuring Diplo along with a music video featuring tour footage. The third single "Kick Us Out" was released on November 3, 2010 and peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Dance/Club Play chart. [15] The music video premiered on Vevo on March 16, 2011.

Night Wave Records: Night Wave and Vertigo (2011–2016)

The cover art for their fourth single, "Fingers Up," was released on their website on June 6, 2011 and the actual single was released around midnight on June 8, 2011 [16] and samples "Derb" by DJ Derb. [17]

Starting on July 1, 2011, the group began a summer-long series titled "Free Song Friday." [18] Similar to Kanye West's GOOD Fridays, Hyper Crush released a new free song, sometimes accompanied by a new music video, every Friday. A list of giveaways in chronological order include: "MBCCD," [19] a remix of She Wants Revenge's "Must Be the One," [20] "Rockstar," [21] "Flip The Switch" and its music video, [22] a "Flip The Switch" remix, [23] and "Maniac" along with its music video. [24]

The group left their record label Universal Motown, to form their own independent label, Night Wave Records. Under their new label, they released the single for "Werk Me" on October 17, 2011. [25] The video for "Werk Me" premiered on the front page of Vevo months later on January 10, 2012. [26] Their second studio album, Night Wave was the first to be released on Night Wave Records and is available for download on iTunes. [27]

Their third album, "Vertigo", was released on October 15, 2013. It contains the first single "Visions of Coleco" and the moderate hit single "Rage", along with 8 more tracks.

After three years without any news, on March 31, 2016 Hyper Crush posted a video on their YouTube channel [28] which shows all three members of the group working on a new album. On June 21, 2016 they released a new song called "Dizzy".

Repeat and the new album (2020)

After three more years out of the music scene, in July 2019 Hyper Crush announced through their Instagram account that they're planning to drop a new record, marking their official comeback. On 1. January 2020, they announced that they will release a whole new album. [29]

On September 25, 2020, Hyper Crush released the single "Repeat" on several streaming services and published a music video. [30] The new video was shot through Preston's video production company, Ridge Production. [31]

On December 22, 2020, the single "No Sweat" was released by Hyper Crush on YouTube and Spotify. [32]
