A Beatroot History with Kavet the Catalyst

I had the honor of spending some time with Kavet the Catalyst to talk about his past as a beatmaker and what inspired him to create Hawaii’s first beat battle, Beatroot.

Kavet and I go way back, we listened to the same underground hip hop tapes back in the late 90s/early 2000s and I had sent him my first beat album, Pendulum while he was the host of the legendary Lightsleepers show on KTUH. When I moved out to the 808 state, he was the first cat I contacted, and the rest is history.
