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 and signing exclusively to Hospital Records in 2010, the Viennese pair have created a whirl of dancefloor anthems and a fearsome reputation for their untouchable production skills.
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 delved into dubstep, drumstep, electro-house and everything in between. The album was a universal success and the duo won not one, not two, but three awards in the Drum & Bass Arena Awards 2011 for “Best Producer”, “Best Video” and “Best Album”.
Their third studio album, titled Zeitgeist (meaning "spirit of the age" or "spirit of the time"), was released on 30 September 2013 through Hospital Records. The album contains influences of disco, French house and minimal music merged with their signature production style.
Their most recent album Mosaik was toiled to create a fresh sound. Entitled Mosaik and released on Ram Records, it was pop-oriented and melodic, stadium drum'n'bass stripped back to its essence.
