For his current works, Cai uses live music as a central pillar within communities; exploring different forms of communal experience. This has been through exploring London rave culture, with an emphasis on grime, and the relationship between MC, DJ and the crowd. This is a subject close to his heart having grown up within this scene. He explores the societal value of music culture within local communities, as he attempts to represent and translate, rather than critique, his surroundings. Cai also questions the legitimacy and illegitimacy of organisation, as well as the hierarchy within cultures in South London, alternating between figuration and abstraction.
