Cashmere Cat
Cashmere Cat
Cashmere Cat is the production alias of young Norwegian producer Magnus August Høiberg – who has caught one to watch buzz early this year from the single ‘With Me’ premiered with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio One & video premiere at Rolling Stone – not to mention 30+ international headline dates including a packed out SXSW, MMW & Music Hall of Williamsburg, In February Cat appeared feature on the Ludacris single “Party Girls” alongside Jeremih & Wiz Khalifa, which allowed him to star in his first Hype Williams directed video. What a crazy life; this unprecedented mention for a producer signals a sea change happening in popular music & the role of our ‘underground’ producers as acknowledged artists in their own right. A world in which Cashmere Cat effortlessly embodies his own underground influences of glittering RnB, French Electro & 00’s club Hip . On Wedding Bells – his debut vinyl EP – he is truly free, non beholden to conventional pop arrangement we find Cat in abundant celebration with a range of highly syncopated pentatonic workouts. Four 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 – Cashmere Cat 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.

“‘Lemonade’ is a bouquet of ephemera, and we shouldn’t be surprised that SOPHIE hid a firecracker in the bundle.” Pitchfork

“Like SOPHIE’s best stuff to date, it sounds like literally nothing else in the world.” Pretty Much Amazing

“It is, once again, one of the best things I’ve heard all year.” Stereogum

“SOPHIE is currently responsible for some of the most unclassifiable future-pop music out there right now” CMJ

“From the start, ‘Lemonade’ shows that it’s far from prototypical with its bizarre sample choices, including the sounds of underwater bubbles and a tea kettle whistling. Later, song veers off the rails when it abruptly changes tone from hypnotic and beat-heavy to saccharine, overblown pop. Overall, it’s a crazy but thrilling listen.” Consequence of Sound

“A sharp, sugary tang. The rush of bubbles up the nose. That fizzy feeling . . . At under two minutes, it’s all over in a flash but the aftertaste lingers like Haribo Tangfastics: a sweet ‘n’ sour sugar crash that fogs up the brain, then has you dipping back in to kick your system back into gear.” The FADER

“SOPHIE always manages to make my favorite single of the summer.” Impose Magazine

“SOPHIE BIPP tune of the summer” DIPLO

“on closer inspection, “Bipp” is a classic case of an artist scrambling conventions and creating a next-level, irresitably fun club track in the process.” PITCHFORK BEST NEW TRACK

“Bipp has experienced underground music’s equivalent of going straight in at number one. Pitchfork made it a best new track, almost all the top magazines and blogs got in there, BBC Radio 1 played it on prime time, and Diplo said it was his “tune of the summer”. But not only does Bipp have that almost unattainably rare combination of high inventiveness and popular success, it’s one of the best signs yet of a new surge of life in the UK’s dance music underground.” DUMMY MAG
