In the government-ration junk food buffet that is popular music, Cave is a raw, organic chopped vegetable salad. While many artists nowadays are motivated by money and fame, Cave has a different agenda; “I’m in it for the Love, call it the Healing of the Nation. The Earth is in too much turmoil right now for every song to be on some ego-trip, glorifying money, pseudo-power, casual sex…there’s a time and place for everything, but the time for that has passed. The me-game is over. It’s a We-game now –if we want to survive that is. People want to remember who they really are whether they know it or not, they want to hear about Spirit, about life in the universe, about what’s really going on under the surface...” Currently Cave is crafting a solo project entitled A.R.T. – Advanced Research and Technology. Set to release in 2008, it is a concept album that Cave is confident will bring some light into the darkness of the contemporary music scene. “The album is a research project…I’m applying the wisdom I’ve gained from life using the most advanced technology that is my Spirit, Mind, and Body. It’s pretty simple, and that’s why its beautiful.” With topics ranging from exopolitics and aliens to the law of attraction and the impending economic collapse, the album is shaping up to be one of the most remarkable to date. And while Cave has been predominantly known solely as a producer over the years, his mic-technology is also fully up-to-date. “I just started taking writing seriously, but I been studying for years. As a musician and producer I have the gift of rhythm, the ability to surf on beats like waves if you will. So now that I got my messages coming through, it’s a wrap. A lot of rappers stick with the same rhyme-style for a whole song, a whole album, maybe even their whole career. I already know to avoid that.”
Born in Dallas, Texas in the early 80’s, Cave became interested in electronic and hip-hop music at an early age. He began experimenting with his own creations around 14, and has been on the rise ever since. When he arrived in Berkeley in 2003 for school, he wasted no time in releasing and circulating his first project, Sticks and Stones, a collection of atmospheric, imagery-provoking hip-hop, jazz, and electro-funk inclined instrumentals. With his diverse influences and unique sonic blend of future-tribal organic electronica and bed-rock hip hop, an awesome soundscape covering everything from trunk slappin'' Cali bangers to spaced out Tokyo heat rocks, Cave quickly launched himself as a gifted and formidable producer into the already prolific Bay Area hip-hop scene. He soon formed a powerful alliance with his home crew, the Awake Click (consisting mainly of Davey-Detail, Grand Logic, Joe Con, Cave, Phantom 309, Dejah Fortune, Jai-G), and eventually linked and collaborated with some of his own inspirations including P.E.A.C.E. (Freestyle Fellowship), Shing02, and Bicasso (Living Legends). Cave has also collaborated with many Bay Area mainstays such as JernEye (Lunar Heights), L-Roneous, Jennifer Johns, Los Rakas, Kristo (Sol Rebels), Seneca (Giving Tree), and more. Cave has rocked countless shows, from New York City to San Francisco to Maui, Hawaii, and has shared stages with many well-known artists such as Casual (Heiroglyphics), P.E.A.C.E. (Freestyle Fellowship), Cali Agents (Rasco & Planet Asia), Lunar Heights, and CunningLynguists. Recently, Cave has collaborated with long-time musical brother and savage lyricist Joe Con on a soon-to-blow project entitled ConCave, producing an album for tribe-member Grand Logic, released his new solo project, working with Bay Area label Ishta Music on a 2008 re-release of Sticks and Stones, and building with Austrian booking agency M12 on a European tour featuring Joe Con, Zion I, and more.
