Interview with

Suff Daddy & Torky Tork / Carpet Patrol

Carpet Patrol is a bizzare ride into the world of Berlin producers Suff Daddy and Torky Tork. Their self-titled album doesn’t sound like anything you have heard from these guys before. Suff Daddy provides the grooves and bassline melodies, Torky is coming with the sick samples and a great ear for arrangements. Their music is tall, dark and grimey, a nightmare on beat street, made for the mature and strong-minded listener.

Facts

The Carpet Patrol Album was made in 3 months
Torky`s shoe size is 47, 5
The weather in Norway is better than most people think
