Watch the new video here:
For Space Kamp, “Summer of Love came from a few inspirations. It’s an ode to the Grateful Dead and the concert parking lot/Shakedown street culture that we love. Deadheads will hear the references throughout the song, hopefully the boys will hear it too and dig it! We also took a lot of inspiration from touring. We are still playing small venues and bars throughout North America so we are able to meet people and connect on a personal level.”
Space Kamp continues, “We have made some lifelong friends over the years through music. We are blessed to have supporters that have become friends and family. Seeing the same familiar faces come to 2 or 3 shows in a row feels good when you’re away from home. We wanted to show love and gratitude for everyone that has come to a show with a Space Kamp or Rebel Hippies tattoo, artwork and even home cooked meals! This community means the world to us and Summer of Love felt like our way of sending a thank you letter.”
Space Kamp, comprised of Oskee and Adoo, recently released album Electric Lemonade topped the charts at #7 on the Google Music Reggae Album Charts, #15 on iTunes Reggae Album Charts, and #80 on Neilson’s Rap Charts! A critic and fan favorite, the new album has received accolades from tastemakers at UndergroundHipHop Blog, TopShelf Music Magazine, Reggaeville, and Tattoo Magazine!
Electric Lemonade is biographical look at the duo’s life while taking the listener on a rebel hippy psychedelic journey. Space Kamp comments, “There is an old saying if you get lemons make lemonade. We’ve been dealt a lot of lemons! No matter what you’re faced with you gotta make the best of every situation,” they continue, “We take that attitude and put some electric in it. It’s like going above and beyond in everything you do.”
Space Kamp first came together in 2017 with the goal to create whatever felt right and without limitations. Their music exploded onto the scene with their first single “Stoner Chic” which garnered critical accolades from Hightimes Magazine, endorsements from, Illadelph Glass, Beard Bros Pharms, Weedmaps and SRH Productions; and currently resides on 150 Spotify playlists (and counting.) Soon after, they hit the road with the release of “Terpene Station” their collaboration album with lyricist Spit Divo and producer, Juno awards winner, Rob the Viking (Swollen Members, XL the Band). They once again made magic with Rob the Viking on the new album Electric Lemonade.
