Cashmere Cat slayed so hard at the Opera House that we thought it was only right to do it all again this week. Keeping it intimate and on Sydney’s best soundsystem at Civic Underground.

Cashmere Cat, aka the “Norwegian forest cat that has been making music for little over a year”, has had a busy 2013 with the release of his debut EP “Mirror Maru” through Paris Social Club residents Pelican Fly Records. Skyrocketing in the blogosphere, “Mirror Maru” has been championed by the likes of Pitchfork and holding a number 1 spot in Hypem most popular charts for 3 days straight.

Making his first tracks to the city of Melbourne, expect to hear the cat’s take on seductive R&B, futuristic hip-hop and bass music. Uploading bootleg edits of Jeremih and 2 Chainz, and doing an official remix for Lana Del Rey, Cashmere Cat quickly gained thousands of cat-loving listeners online and support from DJ´s like Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Brodinski, Baauer, Busy P, Nguzunguzu, Sinden, Flosstradamus, Kito ++.

Behind the razor-sharp-but-soft-and-furry paws of Cashmere Cat hides Magnus August Høiberg. The Oslo-based producer used to lurk behind the scenes of disco and house-music, previously working with labels like Kitsuné and Ninja Tune. As Cashmere Cat he now embraces his true love – gritty R&B and slow jamz.

With live support from Cosmo’s Midnight and DJ sets from Victoria Kim, Future Classic DJs and Astral DJs.
