Legendary Bronx-bred hip-hop duo Camp Lo burst onto the scene in
1997, when their classic debut album Uptown Saturday Night (and it’s
anthemic single “Luchini”) introduced fans to the Lo’s intricate flows and
cutting-edge slang editorials. Nearly two decades later, Geechi Suede
and Sonny Cheeba are back with Ragtime Hightimes, a brand new
album produced by longtime collaborator Ski Beatz. The album finds
Camp Lo and Ski Beatz pushing past boundaries while staying true to
their creative vision. “This piece is different ‘cause we were in a different
space,” says Suede. “It’s always gonna be us, just different versions of
ourselves. We’re exploring different dimensions in visual sound texture.”
While much of their classic material was sample-based, the group is
now experimenting with live instrumentation more than ever before.
“The originality remains,” adds Cheeba. “There are differences in sound,
mostly due to the live instruments.” Overall, the result is a singular piece
of “time traveling art” that is sure to resonate for years to come. “This
album just feels good,” explains Suede. “It’s our favorite way to feel.”
