After announcing their return to Hospital Records, and the release of their Haitian dancefloor weapon ‘Loa’, drum & bass goliaths Camo & Krooked keep their foot firmly on the gas with the release of ‘Kallisto’ – an exciting collaboration with neurofunk titan, Mefjus.

Plunge into a melting pot of first-class sonics, with influences from across the spectrum of electronic music. Hair-raising atmospherics, electro-grizzle and just the right amount of glitch, see the incredible talent of Camo & Krooked and Mefjus unify for a track of pure slickness.

“Kallisto is the perfect example of the musical and sonic middle ground between both Mefjus and us. When we get in the studio together, the blending of our sounds feels really natural to us.” – Camo & Krooked

These soundwave surgeons can be found dishing out their latest creations all across Europe this summer in Austria, UK, The Czech Republic, Belgium and Switzerland at festivals such as Hospitality In The Park 2019, Let It Roll 2019, and more.
