Magnus August Høiberg, known as Cashmere Cat, is a downtempo/abstract electronic music producer and turntablist from Halden, Norway. From 2006 through 2009, under the alias Final, he represented his country at the DMC World DJ Championship. He branched into production and remix work; among his most notable early output was Wildchild's (of the Lootpack) "Stuck in Norway," and Final remixes of tracks by Classixx and Jaga Jazzist. He gained much more notice in 2012 and 2013, when he made remixes and edits of tracks by the likes of Lana Del Rey, Jeremih, 2 Chainz, and Miguel. He also released his own productions, including the Mirror Maru EP (released on Pelican Fly), and hooked up with Glasgow's LuckyMe label, the outlet for his 2013 EP Wedding Bells. The following year he was featured on Ludacris' single "Party Girls." In 2017 Cashmere Cat delivered his debut full-length album, Wild Love. Included on the album was the single "Adore," featuring Ariana Grande. Also featured on the album were guest appearances by Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, 2 Chainz, and others. January 2018 saw the release of the single "Miss You," which featured Major Lazer and Tory Lanez. In August 2019 he issued the single "Emotions" ahead of the arrival of the full-length Princess Catgirl, which arrived the following month. ~ Andy Kellman

Electronic - Released April 28, 2017 | Benny Blanco Major
Norway's Cashmere Cat is known most as a behind-the-scenes figure. He previously entered the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 via his co-production roles on Charli XCX's "Break the Rules" and Tory Lanez's "Luv," and has also worked with the likes of Ryn Weaver, Tinashe, and the Weeknd. On 9, a debut album that follows an assortment of headlining singles and EPs dating back to 2012, the producer refines his slightly left-of center, R&B-inspired pop with assistance from Lanez (on "Trust Nobody," with Selena Gomez), the Weeknd (on "Wild Love," with Francis and the Lights), and several other high-profile collaborators. Among the other singles are the Camila Cabello showcase "Love Incredible" and an Ariana Grande number, "Quit."
Electronic - Released February 10, 2014 | LuckyMe
Sure he's remixed and handled production work for Ludacris, 2 Chainz, Lana Del Rey, and other chart climbers, but on his Wedding Bells EP, Norwegian producer Magnus August Høiberg, aka Cashmere Cat, offers a surprisingly subdued and attractively lazy batch of rainy-day EDM. Don't get it twisted, as this cloudy stuff sits better with music from the "indie" section than something like Deadmau5 or Swedish House Mafia, and yet all the tinkling and drifting found on opening track "With Me" is broken up by a bona fide dubstep bass drop, even if this bass drop crackles with the sound of glitch and lands its punch in a much softer than usual wubba, wubba. If deconstructing pop is his thing, then the title cut is the sound of R&B lying in a million little pieces on some downtown loft floor, while "Rice Rain" borrows R. Kelly's beloved rain drop sound to muddle up a melody somewhere between Tin Pan Alley and Yellow Magic Orchestra. While four tracks and done makes this more of a diversion than a full-on trip, hanging with Cashmere Cat's broken and cuddly brand of pop is a quirky pleasure. If the seats at brunch are all taken by indie kids and laid-back electronica fans, Wedding Bells is a suitable soundtrack. ~ David Jeffries
