Multi-platinum, GRAMMY-nominated DJ and production duo CAMELPHAT just released a brand new album ‘Spiritual Milk’, on September 15th via their own label, When Stars Align.
Following their 2020 album ‘Dark Matter,’ ‘Spiritual Milk’ delves into the evolution of the duo’s ground-breaking sound. A
defining statement of how far they’ve come and how they plan to conquer further. Now out of isolation, back into the clubs, and free to roam the world, the album is about celebrating life and never taking anything for granted.
From the steady-building intro of the latest single ‘Hope’ ft Max Milner, to the sway of ‘Rennen’ a collaboration with SOHN, the swirling menace of ‘The Sign’ with Anyma, euphoric ‘Embers’ with Shimza and Julia Church, and the stomping beat of ‘Compute’ ft Ali Love which samples Kraftwerk’s iconic ‘Computer Love,’ it is an album that highlights the stratospheric trajectory of the duo over the last few years, who are gracing the finest dancefloors and festival fields the world over. Their hard work, combined with their raw talent for creating seamless and effortlessly infectious floor fillers, have further established their legacy as one of the most credible and multi-faceted electronic acts in the game right now. Key tracks on the album, such as the rumbling ‘Colossus’ with Kölsch, the hypnotic collaboration ‘Many Times’ with Mathame and Frýnn, the soaring ‘Higher’ with London Grammar, and the guitar-infused album closer ‘Love Is Something’ ft Jake Bugg showcase their insatiable synergy with all genres.
Speaking about the album, CAMELPHAT said: “We’ve felt a lot less pressure delivering this record possibly due to the fact it’s on our label (WSA), but also we’re at a point in our career where we can possibly afford to be more expressive and less fearful about what other people think. It has definitely come from the heart and feels honest both as writers and musicians. We’ve had fun with it; we’ve made music less with the dance floor in mind and more with our emotions. The whole thing came together surprisingly very easily. “Spiritual Milk” is a listening album that takes your mind away from everyday life. The name itself has captured the overall essence of the album perfectly. Take the trip & enjoy the ride.”
For the album artwork, CAMELPHAT wanted to explore the idea of ‘electronic trip’ and ‘modern psychedelic’ artwork and happened upon Niko Christian’s (aka c-nik) surreal designs. Niko is a multidisciplinary artist based in the US, working to create peace from chaos in surreal arcs of light, life, and time and developing the idea that you can touch heaven from anywhere.
The love and affection for what CAMELPHAT does has been no better displayed than at their current Tuesday night Pacha residency. Playing to sold-out crowds every week since May, CAMELPHAT has curated an incredible line-up of seminal guest DJs showcasing the duo’s exceptional knowledge of the electronic music landscape, making their set one of the season’s must-sees.
