// Artists // Cyberclops
Cyberclops was born July 28th, 1989. He was raised in Fairfax, CA, on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. His interest in Hip Hop got him writing raps by as early as the sixth grade at only 11 years old. Despite his early start, Clops didn’t begin to share his work with peers for about five years. As it turns out, it wasn’t even his raps that would be heard first, but his instrumentals at the age of 15. The quality of his beats quickly drew attention locally. Within a year he teamed up with two of his friends Taylor P and Deacon LF to form The Funky Accident. After having done some writing and performing together, the three released “The Accidental LP” around 2006. During his first semester at Community College in 2007, Clops met LivIn’ Poetry in a music theory class. They both eventually dropped the class, and as a result lost contact. Come 2008, he started working with Browse on their first project together, which lead to performances that drew quite the local crowd. After having released a self-produced copy of their debut album, Ear Peace Records requested that they re-master the project for official release in 2011. In late 2009, Clops happened upon Poe again, who was selling fish in a hippy food market in Fairfax. Later that day he brought Poe a disc with 16 beats on it, having no idea where it was about to lead him. Those beats turned into the basis for “Twenty10’s” and the foundation of CandleSpit Collective. In 2010 Clops moved into an attic in Oakland with Will Buhler and is working on his first, and rather ambitious solo project, which will feature some big names and much of the Ear Peace crew.
