From the suburbs of Copenhagen comes Danish electronic producer, CAIUS. Mesmerized by music artistry from a young age, CAIUS’ passion for generating beats began at age 13 after he was gifted a pair of production speakers by his mother. This sparked a long journey for the young Dane, who in the beginning, became obsessed with mixing hip hop beats. To further perfect his craft, CAIUS turned his father’s at-home painting studio into his personal music studio, becoming his initial lab for creating hits.
Deriving inspiration from various prominent producers of the time, CAIUS dug deeper and deeper into the vinyl records of the 70’s and 80’s, looking for samples that would best compliment his sound. After a while, CAIUS became frustrated by the lack of available hip hop collaborators in his hometown and almost gave up music making altogether. However, his perspective quickly altered after being introduced to electronic music, influencing a new artistic direction to emerge. While exploring different kinds of genres, CAIUS fell in love with the electronic music movement as a whole, but still felt that something was missing as he formulated his beats. After reflecting, CAIUS concluded that little could compare to the soul and nerve of the samples he used on his hip hop tracks, resulting in a spark of genius. Merging together the sample base from his hip hop beat making and layering it with house drums and electronic elements, CAIUS established himself as not only a gifted musician, but also as an artistic innovator.
Giving birth to a new style of electronic music, since uploading his first track to SoundCloud, CAIUS has achieved much success. To date, his hit track “Your Love (feat. Neigh)” has amassed 5M streams on Spotify, and in 2020, was picked by Nike for a series of workout videos. In addition, Australian label, Future Classic, hand-selected CAIUS to deliver a remix pack of Hayden James’, “Just A Lover,” alongside fellow artists, Petit Biscuit and Pomo. Another notable mention includes opening the ‘Countdown’ at Europe’s 2nd largest festival, Roskilde, in 2017.
His hit single ‘Your Love’ ft. Neigh, on Spinnin’ Records in 2019 is still working it’s magic and is now on an all time high of over 6million streams and still going strong. This was also the year where Caius teamed up with Dutch producer EAUXMAR and created ‘’Away From You’ released on Kitsuné Musique’. The year ended with two independent singles before he found his way again to Spinnin’ Records and released his first single of 2021 called ‘’Sweet Days’’ on January 29th including a self made music video. Early Summer he kept us warm with the sounds and images accompanied for this summer anthem ‘’In The Sun’’. And to savour Summer and get through the current tides we’re in he samples William DeVaughn Be Thankful For What You’ve Got and says as quoted in Dancing Astronaut ‘’I wanted to make this song as a friendly reminder to myself and others that you shouldn’t seek happiness from what other people have, just work on your mindset and Be Thankful For What You’ve Got.” On deck for the rest of 2021, CAIUS is set to continue releasing music, as well as will be creating captivating music videos to accompany his releases.
