David “Campa” Benjamin Singer-Vine and Niles “Cyrano” Hollowell-Dhar mixed their songwriting, vocal, and production skills in 2003, while these were attending senior high school in Berkeley, CA. 3 years later on, after acquiring their name — the Cataracs — from a collection in Snoop Dogg’s “What’s My Name, Pt. 2,” they released an unbiased recording, Technohop, Vol. 1, and created the sparse and flourishing monitor “Blueberry Afghani” for fellow Berkeley-based group the Pack. The duo released a small number of low-key albums and mixtapes and broke through with “Like a G6,” a cooperation with ASIA Movement and vocalist Dev that topped the Billboard Warm 100 in past due Oct 2010. Dev herself released a Cataracs-produced solitary, “Bass Down Low,” which reached the graph by the finish of the entire year. The Cataracs managed their hit-making streak with Snoop’s “Damp” — another stripped-down, bass-heavy monitor — that was designed for Prince William’s bachelor party and charted in early 2011.
