Having dished out some impressive bootleg edits of Jeremih and 2 Chainz, as well as an official remix for Lana Del Rey, Cashmere Cat quickly gained thousands upon thousands of cat-loving listeners online. The SoundCloud statistics speak for themselves really! Not only that, but he has received support from the likes of Diplo, A-Trak, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Brodinski, Baauer, and Busy P … what a list!

The Cat’s take on seductive R&B, futuristic hip-hop and bass music also caught the attention of Paris Social Club residents Pelican Fly Records, who released his debut EP (Mirror Maru) in October 2012.

Behind the razor-sharp-but-soft-and-furry paws of Cashmere Cat (an alias that’s a little over a year old) hides Magnus August Høiberg. The 25-year old Oslo-based producer used to lurk behind the scenes of disco and house music, previously working with labels like Kitsuné, True Panther and Ninja Tune. Also, in 2011 (under a different alias) he represented Norway at The DMC World DJ Championships. So, quite an impressive history!

MILK are the ones bringing Cashmere Cat to our doorstop. They’re not taking all the credit though, as the night is being run in association with HAZY, SEMSU, and Audio Addict. Also gracing the stage at UNIT on the night will be Jaycek, BITR8, Cholombian, South Royston and the SEMSU DJs. Basically, if you haven’t got the picture yet, this night is going to be packed full of ridiculous music and general awesomeness.

I’m just gonna sneak a cheeky shout out to George & Clark aka the SEMSU DJs right here!
