Since the coronavirus pandemic, the “Makerspace” workshop in Darmstadt has been turned into a hub for dropping off plastic parts made at home by volunteers and used to assemble face shields sent to health workers across Germany and even as far off as a refugee camp in Greece. The so-called German MakerVsVirus network — extending into Austria and Switzerland thanks to the shared language — gathers about 7,000 enthusiasts who are using their own 3D printers or other gadgets to produce much coveted medical gear.

This Austrian Ski Resort May Have Infected Thousands with Coronavirus

Ischgl in Austria’s Tyrol region is known as the ‘Ibiza of the Alps.’ “These guys know how to do it,” says Scott Phimister, who spent a happy few days in March snowboarding and partying in crowded, sweaty mountain bars.

What was happening in Tyrol’s bars was pretty much the opposite of social distancing. But on March 7, the day Scott and his friends arrived in Ischgl, a barman in one of the town’s most raucous bars tested positive for COVID-19.

Austrians discover farm work in coronavirus labour crunch | AFP

As in many Western countries, one of the shocks of the coronavirus crisis in Austria was how vulnerable farms were when suddenly deprived of foreign labour — but the country is having some success in getting Austrians to plug the gap. Instead of workers from the nearby Czech Republic, an Austrian student whose studies have been interrupted and a food wholesale buyer whose work hours have been reduced due to the pandemic now help plant vegetables, flowers and herbs, and pull out weeds.

Buy or Stream ‘Set It Off’ here: https://CamoAndKrooked.lnk.to/SetItOffyc

“With ‘Set It Off’ we wanted to create a hybrid between 90s hip-hop and forward-thinking D+B. Having Jeru The Damaja rap on our tune is a big honour, as he is one of the founding fathers of this era, working with Guru and DJ Premier of Gang Starr, and a personal youth hero.” – Camo & Krooked

After the effects of their Haitian weapon ‘Loa’ and recent heavyweight collaboration with Mefjus ‘Kallisto’, Hospital Records’ architects of the anti-drop, Camo & Krooked unleash their huge hip-hop meets drum & bass hybrid, ‘Set It Off’ with the lyrical mastery of hip-hop legend Jeru The Damaja.

On Camo & Krooked’s third release since returning home to Hospital Records, their sharp production is packed tightly with lashings of hip-hop beats and vocal hooks that crescendo into their famous stripped back anti-drop.

Hailing from Austria, Camo & Krooked have dominated the global drum & bass scene since signing to Hospital Records in 2010. These soundwave scientists can be found across the world in the coming months bringing their unique DJ sets to The Netherlands, Estonia, Poland, Australia, New Zealand and London for Hospitality Returns to The Dock in 2020.
