Camiel Daamen biography

Way back in the nineties did Dutchman Camiel begin losing himself in synths, computers and other noise making machines, already fascinated by sound at a young age. It is for this reason that he is primarily a producer – someone who is happy to lock himself down and work on a track for days on end, honing and honing his music for maximum dancefloor effect. After many years of practicing and collecting experiences, the man has now released on imprints including Klopfgeist, PiekUp and Florian Meindl’s Flash Records, collecting praise from players like Loco Dice, Brothers Vibe and Maya Jane Coles along the way. And it’s no real surprise given the aesthetics of his music – sleek tech house lines with jazzy influences, deft percussive details and a true sense of groove all permeate his sounds and make your mind work as much as your heel. Releases such as these have understandably brought a lot of attention Camiel’s way, and as such he is an ever more in-demand live performer having first cut his teeth on the Dutch scene. Now you’ll find him playing across Europe in Germany, England and Poland, often weaving together sets made up primarily of his own unique productions… Stubnitz, Studio 80 (24 Hour Party People resident), TWSTd QNSNGHT, Rockit Open Air Festival, Have a Nice Day Festival, Outdoor Stereo Festival, Catwalk Rotterdam, Winkel van Sinkel are just some of the places to have fallen under his spell in recent times. Looking to the future is just a good a prospect for Camiel: he has more productions and remixes lined-up for tastemaker labels like Klopfgeist, Eklektisch and Steve Lawler’s ever on-point VIVa label, whilst his live bookings continue to pour in.
