A musical duo from Berkeley California made up of David "Campa" Benjamin Singer-Vine and Niles "Cyranizzy" Hollowell-Dhar. They're versatile as hell, their work ranges from club bangers like "Top of the World" to mellow songs like "My Guitar" if The Cataracs made it, it's probably good. They are also the mastermind producers and songwriters of hits like "Like a G6" by Far East Movement, "Backseat" by New Boyz, and "Bass Down Low" by Dev. Basically, in the huge hit they make, they are a featured artist instead of making it their own (Despite the fact that they probably made the beat, did all the vocal editing, sang the chorus and a verse, and wrote most of the song, talk about humble right?) everything they touch turns to gold and they deserve WAY more recognition for their work.
Person 1:"Omg I loooove dev sooo much"
Person 2:"Yeah? You know she'd be nothing if it weren't for The Cataracs finding her on myspace, having her sing in their songs and appear in their music videos, producing ultra bumpin beats for her songs, hell, one time they wrote their own song, then decided to make another version with her as the lead and released it with her as the main artist! Oh and btw, this song became a hit, talk about humble right?"

Person1"This song has an awesome beat. DAAYUM this song is catchy as hell!"
Person2 *looks up song* "yup, thought so, The Cataracs produced it"
