Show Review

In the final installment of The Platinum Project, The Cataracs' Niles Hollowell-Dhar gives his thoughts on EDM. It's a cultural phenomenon he doesn't think a lot of people saw coming, but one that's leaving as lasting an impression on the musical landscape as hip hop. So what will The Cataracs' legacy be? It's something Niles is thinking about, striving to strike a balance between the party anthems he has become known for and more artistic expression at the same time. It's a belief summed out rather simply. "Make sure everything is good. Not just your singles". Also, download the entire song HERE.

Artist Bio

David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine and Niles "Cyrano" Hollowell-Dhar combined their songwriting, vocal, and production talents in 2003, while they were attending high school in Berkeley, CA. Three years later, after taking their name -- the Cataracs -- from a line in Snoop Dogg's "Whats My Name, Pt. 2," they released an independent album, Technohop, Vol. 1, and produced the sparse and booming track "Blueberry Afghani" for fellow Berkeley-based group the Pack. The duo released a handful of low-key albums and mixtapes and broke through with "Like a G6," a collaboration with Far East Movement and vocalist Dev that topped the Billboard Hot 100 in late October 2010. Dev herself released a Cataracs-produced single, "Bass Down Low," which reached the chart by the end of the year. the Cataracs maintained their hit-making streak with Snoop's "Wet" -- yet another stripped-down, bass-heavy track -- which was made for Prince Williams bachelor party and charted in early 2011.
