Profile
When Cheeba was 18 years old he got pulled into the inner circle of the legendary Dust Brothers, who redefined the art of sampling with people like Beck and Beastie Boys. After three years with them, doing everything from cleaning bongs to editing tracks for the Fight Club score, Cheeba parted ways to focus on his own productions. The first Cheebacabra album, Metamorphosis, was released in 2003.
