Influenced by hiphop’s biggest acts he picked up the turntables, organized parties and invested in his interest in music, molding his skills into a beat maker with the help of various mentors.
In the last three years, Nick Calaveras has been heavily involved in the national scene playing live shows with artists like Elefante Mecánico, Anzestro, Tiro de Gracia, and Tea Time. He also has been producing for Ceaese, Código Primo and Vitami while simultaneously preparing the tracks for his own album.
