WATCH: Cashmere Cat ‘Wedding Bells’ (Official Video)
CASHMERE CAT is the production alias of young Norwegian producer Magnus August Høiberg – who has caught ‘one-to-watch’ buzz this year with his single ‘With Me’, premiered by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio One.
He also features on the Ludacris single “Party Girls” alongside Jeremih & Wiz Khalifa. An unprecedented mention for a producer, it signals a sea change happening in popular music & the role of our ‘underground’ producers.
With this debut vinyl EP he is truly free – unbeholden to conventional pop structures from vocalists. CASHMERE CAT‘s own songs are crammed full of ingenious melodic ideas and counterpoint. These are songs built in equal parts from glittering RnB, French electro & 00’s club Hip Hop – this is wide, cinematic and unabashedly bright new dance music. Rarely does a new artist emerge with such a unique voice across their work – he is unconcerned with where he fits with DJs and his music is smarter for it.
The Wedding Bells EP represents the next stage for Cashmere Cat as recording artist and has commanded support so far from: Kode 9, Éclair Fifi, Nguzunguzu, Hud Mo, Rustie, Baauer, Diplo, Skrillex, A Trak, Brodinski – as well as BBC Radio One & Triple J.
