Multi-platinum, GRAMMY-nominated DJ and production duo CamelPhat recently announced their brand new album ‘Spiritual Milk’, which will be released 15 September via their own label, When Stars Align. Following their 2020 album ‘Dark Matter,’ the new album delves into the evolution of the duo’s sound. A possible statement of how far they’ve come and how they plan to produce 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.
CamelPhat: “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 dancefloor 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, the duo 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 two will also host a specially curated night at the brand new North London venue, Drumsheds, on Saturday, 25 November, one of the first shows announced for the venue.
Saturday, 21 October will see the duo host a night at The Warehouse Project. Guests announced so far include Ben Böhmer (live), Fideles, Rebūke, Layla Benitez, Kas:st, Miss Monique, Azzecca, and James Organ.
