"Caveman", based in Berlin, is a collaboration between the German singer-songwriter Carlos Kolmer, Slovenian producer and multi-instrumentalist Borut Praper, and Slovenian singer Monika Fritz. The project began soon after Monika and Borut moved to Berlin and ended up being Carlos's neighbours by pure coincidence. The first result of the work, carried out in 2013 and 2014, is the six-track extended EP, entitled simply "Caveman".

CARLOS KOLMER is a German singer-songwriter of German-Spanish descent. He bought his first guitar at the age of 16. Carlos moved to Berlin shortly before the Wall came down and worked as a roadie and stage hand for many years. He has never given up on his love for music, so he started recording his own songs more seriously at the tender age of 28, because he believed it is never too late. As he never stopped working on music since, he has ended up with more than 70 songs that not more than a few people have ever heard. In 2013 Carlos met the Slovenian musicians Borut Praper and Monika Fritz, who had just moved to Berlin, into a flat next to his. The collaboration between the new neighbours resulted in the project "Caveman" and the first six-track extended EP with the same title.
MONIKA FRITZ is a Slovenian singer, most notable for her work in the progressive/heavy prog band Cynicism Management. She was also the second vocalist in the (now inactive) Slovenian trip-hop/alternative rock band SUR and wrote several lyrics for that project. Furthermore, Monika has recorded backing vocals for the bands Na lepem prijazni, Last Legs, and Rok Predin & Libido. Monika is currently arranging and recording vocals for the upcoming full-length album by Cynicism Management, entitled Pendulum Pet, and taking part in the ongoing work on Caveman.
BORUT PRAPER is a Slovenian composer, arranger, producer, multi-instrumentalist and lyricist. He has played drums in numerous bands and performed at many concerts since 1993. Since 1998 he has written and recorded music for numerous projects and audiovisual works. To date Borut’s work has been published on 30 digital releases, 15 audio CDs, and 2 video DVDs. Currently he mostly records drums as a studio drummer and focuses predominantly on Cynicism Management (progressive rock/heavy prog band), Ray Kosmick and His Porn Groove Crew (independent electronic rock & soundtrack experiment), as well as on a number of side projects, including Coenurus and Caveman. In the last few years Borut has also pursued his literary efforts: his debut novel – a satire with elements of sci-fi / cyberpunk, entitled "Cynicism Management" and featuring the fictional progressive rock band with the same name – was published in 2013 by the U.K. e-book publisher Aventura eBooks. At the moment he is writing his second novel, a comic fantasy story entitled Pendulum Pet. More at http://studio.sur.si/.
