“I was looking forward to becoming an ant in China,” he explains. International success hadn’t been easy, even for a record as irresistibly catchy as “Like a G6.” “I don’t think Far East Movement’s label wanted it as a single because they didn’t own enough of it, but it was unstoppable,” he says.
It had been the most difficult decision of his life, but Singer-Vine had resolved to leave the music industry behind. According to Singer-Vine, The Cataracs owned about 75%-80% of the record.
Through Universal, they began producing music for artists such as Far East Movement and Glasses Malone.
As artists, The Cataracs received recognition through their 2010 single "Club Love", which received air play at clubs and on many different radio stations.
