2017: the camo & krooked takeover continues to permeate every corner of the electronic music landscape as they take their unique sound to uncharted pastures. two successful singles, one high profile remix of noisia, one essential mix and a non-stop world tour into 2017, the austrian music-producer a-listers now present the most critical releases of their career...
after three long years of the deepest studio craft they’ve ever committed to, camo (reini) & krooked (markus) have delivered their most unifying, high profile vocal track like i do with fellow vienna artist and runaway songwriter sensation james hersey. then, on june 23, they will finally unveil their most startling, detailed and singular body of work yet - mosaik.
their fourth album since emerging in 2007, mosaik is a pivotal document that elevates camo & krooked’s creative credentials, vision and technique to brave new levels. the result of years of studio hibernation, studying vintage analogue instruments, honing their instantly distinctive signature, songwriting skills and, in markus’ case, even finding their own singing voice, mosaik galvanizes the duo’s position as one of the most exciting, unique, innovative and in-demand acts in electronic music.
camo & krooked are back with their new album *zeitgeist*. this belter is jam-packed with disco, french house and minimal influences, which are merged together with the signature camo & krooked sound to form an awe-inspiring 15-track package. the album also features key collaborations with fellow hospital star metrik and norwegian indie-electronic duo lemâitre.
camo & krooked return to the fore with >between the lines<, an immense fourteen-track remix album which takes their award-winning debut on hospital >cross the line< to a whole new level fresh for 2012. these two tracks which have been pressed to vinyl provide a tasty sampler from the album and are aimed at the dancefloor dj, avid collector and discerning listener alike. two very different sides of the camo & krooked coin here from mind vortex and inside info, both equally as compelling.

camo and krookeds set opener for some time, they have till now kept this track strictly exclusive to the viper camp, despite strong pressure from pretty much every a-list dj over the past few months. finally released on dub in december, if you arent hearing this out in the clubs over the next few weeks, quite simply, your in the wrong clubs. with an anthemic half step intro, sirens and cinematic vocals announcing the rave armageddon to come, >feel your pulse< then drops into camo and krookeds now trademark futuristic buzz synths and ratchet tight snare snaps, raising hands and pulses in unison. a true dancefloor smash and no mistake.

>the sun vip< featuring fellow aussie shock one is a stunner from start to finish. an atmospheric, spine-tingling introduction sets the scene perfectly, before the monstrous electro-synth attack riff appears in the darkness, setting raves alight. thumping beats and thick sub bass join the party and its all over. the flipside is a collaboration with two of d&b hottest jump-up artists camo & krooked, and >stage diver< is a suitably high-octane gallop with wallowing waves of bass, and a steppy, four-to-the-floor foundation. big, bad and very dangerous.
