Prodigious beatmaking duo Reinhard Rietsch & Markus Wagner bursrt onto the scene in 2008, garnering widespread DJ support from a number of selectors and tastemakers within the Drum & Bass landscape. Armed with a fresh energy filled approach to crafting beats at 170BPM and an unparalleled ability to incorporate complex synth sections into their musical productions, Camo & Krooked quickly became household names publishing music on seminal imprints Breakbeat Kaos, Viper Recordings, and Hospital Records.
Signing an exclusive deal to record music exclusively under the Ram Records banner, the Vienna based beatsmiths wasted little time settling into their new home dropping their debut issuance “If I Could” / “Ember” on Andy C‘s industry leading label. Camo & Krooked would later reveal that follow-up single “Good Times Bad Times” / “Honesty” was an album sampler for a forthcoming LP that would be jointly released under their very own brand new label Mosaik.
“Good Times Bad Times” is a future Blues excursion that defies genre and BPM. With gritty male vocals working hand in hand with balearic synths, warm sub bass, and strings, “Good Times Bad Times” inconspicuously transitions from D&B to a four-to-the-floor tempo completely flipping the script for DJs looking to seamlessly move from one sound to another.
