Caim – Exo Planet [Lonely Planet Rec.]


LONELY006 is a split EP with Eversines on the A side. A huge talent from Amsterdam with previous releases on Kalahari Oyster Cult and Nous’klaer. The B side is produced by Caim. It’s an exploration into the deepest realms of organic techno and stripped down house. But most notably, Caim is the love child of a musical bromance that started in 2016 – when Tommy Kornuijt and Mark Antoni first discovered their shared obsession for analogue gear and immersive grooves – and is now reaching maturity.

Before joining forces, both Tommy and Mark had their fair share of musical successes. Tommy as co-founder and resident of Amsterdam’s (in)famous Breakfast Club parties, touring all across Europe with his distinctive take on minimalistic house and techno. And Mark as head honcho of the Amsterdam-based Mood parties and his vinyl imprint Lonely Planets Records. After their initial musical infatuation, they quickly decided to move into a new studio together, where the Caim adventure started. Three years down the line, their musical output is coming up to full speed. With the first release Flâneur on their Caim imprint perfectly setting the tone for their signature sound last year – an alloy of infectious drum patterns and mesmerizing synth moods – they are upping the ante with their sophomore release Rehab in April, and have Caim Records 003 in the pipeline for later this year. Recently, Mark and Tommy have started doing more and more of their notoriously deep and long (after hour) DJ sets. This has landed them residencies at both Breakfast Club and The Tribe. With gigs confirmed in places like Nijmegen’s Drift Festival, Berlin’s About Blank and even as far away as Tel Aviv, Caim is coming for you in 2019 – can’t say we didn’t warn you.
