We caught up with Camo & Krooked ahead of their performance at SW4, which will see them go head to head with the big dog, Friction! In the interview we discuss their forthcoming album ‘Mosaic’, their world tour and ask what we can expect from their set this year...
Your no strangers to playing with us at SW4 having now played the last two consecutive years, this year will be the third on the trot, we cant wait to have you back! Did you enjoy your sets with us last time round?
Camo - I mean SW4 is one of the major festivals in London everybody is there from the artist point of view, there are many different genres, also the main guys of the charts are there having a good time, and I think people can feel it, the crowd is really energetic as expected for London so you can even play some classics in there. It’s just a great get together between all the genres and drum & bass is coming along strong again this year.
Krooked - Its different to other festivals because in other festivals people just want to hear the hits, like the smash hits, but it feels like if you play SW4, because you’ve got more of a London based crowd they know their tunes so you can go deeper than your typical festivals, which is actually really cool.
This time your going head to head with the big dog Friction for a special vs set which has certainly got the DnB community excited! Can you tell us a bit about your history with Friction?
Camo - I mean we’ve known friction for such a long time now, obviously we released on his label with a collaboration we did together, we’ve been attached for probably around 8 years now and we’ve never done a B2B so I think it was long overdue.
Krooked - I actually can’t wait to do our first B2B, he smashes it and is great technically and has a great back catalogue so we will also try to smash it but in our own kind of way. We are actually preparing a lot of special edits of new tracks of the new album and cheeky bootlegs here and there that probably won’t have ever been played before until that festival.
