'caine' was born from a collaboration between Ski Oakenfull and 'Dr' Rick Fraser. Merging influences such as Mogwai Radiohead Portishead & Brian Eno to name a few Ski provided the beats & keys whilst Rick lent his guitar & vocal talents. The album which was completed in 2000 generated a massive buzz but was never released. With Rick now living in Melbourne working as a Doctor it gives Primaudial Records great pleasure in allowing this work to finally see the light of day. Marketing: It is impossibe to make this a live project as Rick Fraser is now living in Australia but with the news of the album's imminent release we have agreed to work on some new tracks together over the internet (there are also some unfinished tracks) so the caine project is definitely ongoing. As I mentioned there was a lot of support for the album originally so I will follow up these contacts with promos. Namely XFM djs such as John Kennedy and also Radio 1 djs such as Zane Lowe. Due to the ambient nature of the album I'm also planning a compilation album later in which the track 'Peripherique' could appear. 'Automatic' was always a very popular track...and actually secured us both a publishing deal with Chrysalis!
