Cashmere Cat: Incredible Down Tempo Smooth Electronic Producer from Norway – “Aurora” + “Fallin Love (Cashmere Cat Remix)”Posted in Uncategorized by nick | Tags: Cashmere Cat, Down tempo, Electronic, Fresh, Smooth, Trap Music
Today I’d like to get you all more properly acquainted with Cashmere Cat. His name is August and he is an incredible producer and DJ from Norway who makes some amazing down tempo smooth electronic music fueled by his signature powerful drum. I had the pleasure of seeing him perform live this past week at SXSW in Austin and was absolutely blown away. This first track is his remix to BenZel’s “Falling In Love”. The percussion is to clean and on point adding the perfect background for him to do some unreal vocal sampling that is unbelievably easy to listen to.
The Cat manages to carry out a certain airy freshness to every single one of his productions coming off extra light. Next up is his recent single “Aurora” that recently got released on a Feathers compiliaton. He uses some interesting insutrments and knocks you in the face with his drums. Turn these up, start growing in love if you haven’t already with Cashmere Cat. Enjoy!
