EL Caveman hails from Chicago… the house capital of the world. This veteran has been part of the Chicago music scene for more than two decades moving the crowd time and time again.


His roots stem from early radio in the 1990’s in Chicago. As a teenager, EL Caveman started as a resident dj spinning at 90.5 FM WCYC in Chicago where he carved out a name for himself and became a prominent resident dj for the memorable "Friday Night Dance Party." He quickly became a crowd favorite in the South/West side of Chicago. EL Caveman was also an air-personality and co-hosted several shows including the “Friday Night Hot Mix Show”. He diligently spun for WCYC for over five years dominating the airwaves. Quote: “I loved the fact that I played on the airwaves and felt that radio was my avenue to channel the music that was in my head dying to come out! I never took it for granted.”


During the middle nineties, EL Caveman began spinning at some early big events with many prominent producers/djs such as "Paul Johnson, Gene Hunt, Jesse De La Pena, Robert Armani, Lego, DJ Hyperactive, Stacey Kidd, CZR, Angel Alanis, Woody McBride, Nigel Richards, DJ Funk, Dieselboy, DJ Jess, Danny The Wild child, DJ 3D, Mark Almaria, Bad Boy Bill, and Lester Fitzpatrick of Cajual/Relief Records, etc. (to name a few).


During the late nineties, this dj continued to play at various loft parties, warehouse parties, prolific clubs, and various big venues around Chicago. He became a local icon. Moving the masses and always kept the crowd on their feet wanting some more. In 1998, EL Caveman was a resident WCRX 88.1 FM “Chicago’s Underground” located in the heart of downtown Chicago where he showcased this style and skill. There, he was a resident dj for about 4 years and had a total of 9 years in radio under his belt.


During the late 90s, EL Caveman began experimenting with producing beats and his own music. He co-produced some tracks on a few labels such as Minimalistix Records in Belgium with Lester Fitzpatrick making techno and tech-house music. EL Caveman also appeared in a cable show on CANTV spinning live in front thousands of viewers, along with a brief skit with Cajmere/Green Velvet. More and more people began to know of him.
