CASHMERE CAT SHARES "WITH ME" VIA PITCHFORK
ANNOUNCES WEDDING BELLS EP DUE IN 2014 VIA LUCKYME
Stream: "With Me" -
Cashmere Cat is the production alias of young Norwegian producer Magnus August Hoiberg - who has caught a buzz this year amidst rumors of some big name production work alongside Rihanna hit-maker Benny Blanco. But while perhaps this is a story you got used to this year as our artists produced for Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Drake, Pusha T, Future, Jeremih, Ludacris, Rick Ross & Kanye West - we're here to present new music with it's own purpose. Not dependent on vocalists, Cashmere Cat's own music is crammed full of smart melodic ideas and arrangement. These are songs built in equal parts from glittering RnB, touching on French electro, driven by the heavyweight bottom end of 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 - Cashmere Cat is unconcerned with where he fits with DJs and is more influenced by Pop & Hip Hop than today's stadium filling dance acts. But his music is smarter for it.
Ahead of his first vinyl release in January - the four track Wedding Bells EP - we bring you a taste of what's to come with a single entitled "With Me". Thick, satin grand piano chords open an unusually romantic refrain which collides into Death Grips-esk distorted percussion and Cat's hallmark autotune solos building towards euphoric thizzing crescendo before collapsing to a single beating broken-heart.
For those previously familiar with Cashmere Cat, the Wedding Bells EP represents the next stage in his development with striking attention to detail whilst never loosing its hooks. Along with support so far from: Kode 9, Éclair Fifi, Nguzunguzu, Hud Mo, Rustie, Baauer, Diplo, Skrillex, A Trak,Brodinski - We are honored to be working with CC to bring you his attempt at a perfect thing in an imperfect world.
