The Cataracs

 

Advertising

The Cataracs are an American hip hop indie-pop band formed in Berkeley, California, consisting of Niles "Cyranizzy" Hollowell-Dhar, a songwriter, vocalist and producer and formerly David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine, a songwriter and vocalist. The duo started out as an independent group, during their years at Berkeley High School. The two were first signed to the label Indie-Pop. The Cataracs are currently based in Los Angeles consisting, right now, of just Niles "Cyranizzy" Hollowell-Dhar.

The duo met in their sophomore year while attending Berkeley High School. Singer-Vine was featured in a rap CD that was being passed around campus. When Dhar eventually heard the CD, he subsequently created a response. However, the “diss” response brought the two together and they soon became friends. In 2003, the two joined together to create what is now The Cataracs (named after the phrase “Who smoke ‘til your eyes get cataracts” from Snoop Dogg's song “What's my name Pt. 2”). In the summer of 2006, they released their first album, Technohop Vol. 1. In August 2006, the group joined with The Pack to make the single “Blueberry Afghani”. The song soon became a hit and was chosen as a “Download of the Week” by 106 KMEL and many music sites such as The Fader, UK’s Hip Hop Connection and XLR8R praised it.

The Cataracs, along with Dev, signed to the Indie-Pop Label, which also features musicians such as Young L.[5] They were later signed to a major label, Universal Records.[6] Through Universal, they began producing music for artists such as Far East Movement and Glasses Malone. As artists, The Cataracs received recognition through their 2010 single "Club Love", which received air play at clubs and on many different radio stations.

In late 2012, Niles (continuing on with the name The Cataracs despite David's departure) released songs produced by himself and collaborating with artists such as martin solveig, Trevor Simpson, and Borgeous. Niles has recently been focusing on a new embark as being an EDM artist. While still occasionally rapping in songs like "Big Dipper" featuring Luciana, "Ready For The Weekend" featuring Icona Pop, and "Alcohol (Remix)" featuring Sky Blu of LMFAO. Early in 2013, The Cataracs released two music videos on Vevo. The video for "Alcohol (Remix)" featuring Sky Blu gained much attention and over 2.5 million views, which is even more than the commercially successful single "All You", released in early 2012. Also the video for "Missed U 2" featuring Petros was released a few months later. It was the first video by The Cataracs to not have rapping done by Niles. Both directed by Anthony Fox. In May 2013, Martin Solveig released "Hey Now" with The Cataracs featuring Kyle. The song gained much attention, ranking as high as number 10 on the iTunes Dance Music chart.
