*Camo & Krooked are back with their new album "Zeitgeist". Two years on and the follow up to "Cross The Line" truly encapsulates the sound of Camo & Krooked 2.0. Already seeing heavyweight DJ support from across the board, "Zeitgeist" 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 Lem itre
Austrian duo Reinhard Rietsch and Markus Wagner, otherwise known as Camo & Krooked have quickly become one of the hottest production outfits in Europe. Working together since 2007 they were soon being hailed as "one of the biggest talents in Drum + Bass" by the mighty Grooverider and have gone on to fulfil this accolade since signing to Hospital Records in 2010, winning not one, not two, but three awards in the Drum & Bass Arena Awards 2011 for "Best Producer", "Best Video" and "Best Album".
The Viennese pair have created a whirl of dancefloor anthems since they emerged onto the scene a few years back. On Hospital Records they have have brought us soulful, sultry tracks like massive hit single "Turn Up The Music" alongside raw power of smashers like "Climax" and in autumn 2011, they released their first album on Hospital "Cross The Line"; a fourteen-track rollercoaster ride of emotions, veering between polished vocal-led beauties to filthy tear-out monsters, which firmly establishes Camo & Krooked outside the D+B sphere, as they delve into dubstep, drumstep, electro-house and everything in between. This was teed it up with lead single "All Fall Down (feat. Shaz Sparks)" and "Make The Call (feat. TC)" and later followed up by the release of the title track "Cross The Line (feat. Ayah Marar)".
Autumn 2011 also saw the birth of Camo & Krooked *LIVE* - an amazing, multi-sensory show, featuring the pair perched inside an LED-lit cage using iPads and various MIDI-controllers to rearrange and modify their recent hits and trigger visuals, with album vocalists Ayah Marar and TC featuring, plus Messy MC hosting. Designed and built by Justin from Meno TV, Camo & Krooked *LIVE* was taken around the UK on an Autumn Hospitality tour before the duo took it overseas to their native Austria and the rest of Europe.
2012 has seen the release of their remix album "Between The Lines" which features re-works of "Cross The Line" cuts by a range of producers including Metrik, Mefjus, Subwave, BCee and more. The boys have also had their music featured on some high profile computer games and are busy working on their next album. Hold tight for more to come from this explosive duo!
Tom Mundell a.k.a Metrik is a London based DJ / producer who has been blowing the scene to pieces with his euphoric, rave-inspired productions. Already clocking up a sizeable back catalogue of releases on labels such as Viper Recordings, Spearhead and Shogun Audio, he signed exclusively to Hospital Records in October 2012.
Known for impressing crowds across the UK, Europe and across the world with his peaktime dancefloor tunes featuring big hooks and catchy melodies, Metrik has certainly captured the imagination of many fans already and will undoubtedly continue to do so in the coming months and years. With diverse tastes ranging from Eric Prydz to Incubus, Pink Floyd to The Prodigy, Metrik's love of music doesn't stop there. An avid fan of 80s synth music, film music as well as dance music across the board, his influences span house, techno, trance, rock, soul, classical and 80s synth music.
Metrik's first big break was in 2008, when he debuted with Your World (Instrinsic) which became an overnight liquid funk anthem / considered a classic by many (or something similar!) although it wasn't until the next release that he was catapulted into the spotlight when his track "Technicolour" gained Radio One support from Annie Mac and Zane Lowe and was also used as a sound bed for Barack Obama's victory speech on Radio One! Following this came a slew of singles and EPs with notable releases including the sci-fi inspired "Between Worlds EP" (Viper, 2011) and most recently the smash hit "Freefall" (Viper, 2012) as well as remixes of Prydz, John B, Camo & Krooked, Ayah Marar, Rockwell, DJ Fresh, Dirtyphonics and many more.
With his recent signing to Hospital, we are all very excited about the future for Metrik. Stay tuned.
