He is currently signed with Catch the Ghost Records and has released 1 album and 2 EPs on this label. As a DJ, he plays parties nationally and internationally. Caleaf currently tours the world teaching the art of House dancing. His goal is to share the culture of the dance through performances and by teaching movement foundation, technique and history from an originator point of view.
