The “Zeitgeist” album is available now!
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 Lemâitre .
Kicking things off is the epic “Turn Back The Time” which introduces us into this brave new world of sultry synths, sharp beats and disco-influenced aesthetics which form the backbone of the album. Then we have the familiar sounds of the ever-catchy undulating white noise of “All Night” and dancefloor detonator “Move Around (ft. Ian Shaw)”. Watch out for other gems including “Aurora (ft. Metrik)” with its epic trance-like soundscape, the soulful sounds of “Loving You Is Easy”, the enticing and experimental “Ruhepuls” and collaborative smasher “Dreamcatcher (ft. Lemaitre)” with its fidgety beats and infectiously upbeat vibe.
Expect the unexpected as Camo & Krooked continue to push the boundaries with their impressive opus, “Zeitgeist”. Like all the best albums, “Zeitgeist” makes sense as a whole and should be enjoyed from start to finish.

The next single from Camo & Krooked in the run up to the release of their brand new album ‘Zeitgeist’ is the exceptional dancefloor detonator ‘Move Around’.The track is classic Camo & Krooked 2.0 — at once uplifting, energetic and innovative to the core.
Kicking off with a flurry of piano keys and a shimmying vocal (courtesy of the award winning Ian Shaw), the track is underpinned by a quirky, warping hook which will get inside your head. Accompanying the original tune is a radio edit, instrumental and a remix by French house producer Uppermost.
This single will be available in digital stores on September 9th. Expect to hear a lot more from Camo & Krooked in the coming weeks as the ‘Zeitgeist’ album is set for release September 30th.
In anticipation of their new album, the pair return to the airwaves with this immense single track release which provides a tantalizing taster of more to come.
Entering into groundbreaking new territory, Camo & Krooked ride the wave of disco fever and carve a fresh new aesthetic which fits their sonic palette and sound engineering wizardry. ‘All Night’ sees a marked departure from the ruckus of “Cross The Line”, proving once again just how versatile these producers are.
Kicking off with a stripped back intro full of undulating white noise, gentle hissing beats before the catchy, powerful vocal hook and piano keys come into focus. This is glorious, polished Camo & Krooked at their best – with a minimal approach reminiscent of their earliest releases on hospital “Turn Up The Music” and “Climax”.
