Copenhagen’s Caius is always good for a bit of unadulterated funk, and his newest single "Be Thankful For What You’ve Got" is no different. Stuck somewhere between the modern era of electronic production, and the soulful heydays of the 1970s, the track gives you a good reason to forget about those worries of yours and simply enjoy the moment for a bit.

With its nuanced guitar plucks, softened harmonies and a bassline that demands your hips move, all build on the signature groovy Caius sound, distinguish the Danish producer as one of the global scene’s most inspired talents. It’s been a tough year, but the new single is a simple reminder that we should all just be thankful for what we’ve got - which in this case, is a shiny new Caius bop.

Offering insight into the release, Caius comments:

 I produced “Be Thankful For What You’ve Got” up around an old track I found on a vinyl from the 70s. I bought the record in a 2nd hand vinyl store in my hometown because the artwork looked kind of summerish. But the funny thing was, when I played the record the lyrics connected so well with me even though they were almost 50 years old. With all the things we are exposed to on social media these days, I see so many people (including myself) getting caught in the mindset that you need an expensive lifestyle or certain things to be happy. But the more I’ve grown as a person I’ve also learned that finding happiness comes from your mindset, not the things you own or vacations you can afford. So 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".
