Caveman Soundsystem, one of the oldest and most prominent Roots and Foundation Soundsystems on the beautiful Caribbean island, traces its roots back to the early 80s when the Moore brothers, sons of a cousin of Lee “Scratch” Perry, took over the sound established by their father in the early 70s and began making a name for themselves beyond the Caveman-Yards.
Throughout the late 80s, Caveman Soundsystem gained recognition throughout Jamaica through collaborations with artists like Nardo Ranks and Pan Head, producing hits that resonated across the island. Notably, Caveman Sound played an instrumental role in the careers of many renowned Roots Reggae artists, including Jah Cure, Luciano, and Bushman, who started their musical journeys in collaboration with the sound system.

Sizzla, initially known as “Likkle One,” joined the sound system in the early 90s, performing his first tunes under Caveman’s guidance.
