You can't plan for a new beginning. It often just happens without any warning or notice. There's no time for preparation. However, if you embrace it with an open heart and mind, everything can change for the better.
Ever since 2004, production powerhouse and platinum-selling eclectic pop unit The Cataracs had been a duo--Niles and David. However, in the summer of 2012, after the release of the sizzling hot Gordo Taqueria [Indie-Pop/Republic Records] and its fiery lead single "All You" featuring Kaskade and Waka Flocka Flame, David decided to follow a lifelong dream and travel the world, effectively leaving The Cataracs a one-man unit. Niles dusted himself off and kept forging ahead though. "It left me really vulnerable and anxious for a minute," he admits.
"It also gave me the opportunity to come into my own as a solo act and even realize the initial vision that I had for The Cataracs. I like creating intelligent dance music that makes people move. That's what I've wanted to do since the beginning. Campa and I weren't always on the same page about that.Make The Cataracs Playlist
