cached is an intermedia platform based in chicago, illinois.


by matthew sage

cached is a collaboration-centric platform:

the releases in our catalog are made by inviting artists to choose collaborators or to collaborate with cached.

cached does not accept demo submissions:

as our projects are collaborative, cached is not seeking material, especially solo material, by music or sound artists. 

to contact, please email:


  • bandcamp
  • youtube
  • instagram
  • discord
