Laurent Daumail (born 1973),[1] better known by his stage name DJ Cam, is a French record producer. Daumail's music is largely rooted in hip hop, combined with elements of jazz, dub, and ambient and composed using samples.[2][3] Daumail first rose to prominence in the 1990s with records such as Underground Vibes and Underground Live, which have been credited as early examples of trip hop, and he emerged as a leading figure in the decade's "ambient hip-hop" scene.[3][4] He founded the record label Inflamable.[1] In addition to his own musical output, Daumail has produced several compilations and albums for other artists.[1]
