Albums, Electronic | Cashmere Cat – Wedding Bells EP & Video

Posted by on February 13, 2014

Yes folks, this is the week we have all been waiting for. Just a few days ago, our favorite feline Cashmere Cat dropped his highly anticipated EP, appropriately titled Wedding Bells, and as a follow up, the music video counterpart for the title track.

As a whole, the EP is a musical journey with uplifting builds and cadences of flutes, piano chords, and dew drops that send you soaring like a leaf wistfully falling in the breeze. In accordance with the theme, each track plays out a motif that strikes a different chord of your heart strings, from the early stages of butterflies and passing notes to the all encompassing feeling of true, uninhibited love. *swoon*

And it seems Cashmere Cat has a complete grasp of his artistic vision in every possible sense, as the visual pairing for the leading single compliments the track in the most compassionate of ways.

Now, according to a Pitchfork review by Nate Patrin, the innovative and “fundamental” nature of the EP marks a turning point in the direction of electronic music, and even more importantly Cashmere’s skyrocketing career. But I beg to differ with Patrin’s claim that it is difficult to develop any sort of “emotional connection to the cuts” as instilling that type of emotion in his listeners seems to be at the top of his artistic agenda. While Patrin argues that these melodies create more “agitation than elation,” I think that’s what causes us to enjoy the EP more and more. There are those moments of slight unease that with a second listen, evolve into strong feelings of adoration, like taking yourself of your listening comfort zone and discovering a whole new appreciation for the sound.

If you haven’t already, you can purchase the Wedding Bells EP via iTunes, and consider saving some money on chocolate and roses tomorrow and burn a copy of it for your significant other as well. That’s when the real magic happens =^.^=


Electronic, Mix, Trap | Cashmere Cat for Diplo & Friends BBCR1

Posted by on May 11, 2013


Cashmere Cat, for reasons other than being a fellow cat lover, is one of my absolute favorites right meow. I’ve been a fan of everything he’s been putting out so I was even more stoked when I got to indulge in an entire hour of his sweet sounds on this episode of Diplo & Friends radio. He does an astounding job of bouncing (literally, check the mattress squeaking motif) from hip hop to hot beats to trap and experimental noises and manages to keep the listener engaged throughout. Some highlights include his own personal tracks, Mirror Maru (2:55) and Kiss Kiss (18:20), throwbacks like the Men in Black theme (34:40), and a witty surprise in the middle of Justin Timberlake’s Señorita (9:50).

You can download this mixtape fo free, in addition to a selection of his bumpin remixes off his Soundcloud. Really though, you’ve gotta be kitten me if you don’t =^.^=


Mashups | DJ Dibella – Winter Drunkerland | Mashups

Posted by on February 20, 2011

This pretty much has BIGLIFE written all over it – you need to listen to this project. Productions like these restore my faith in the art of mashups. Too many people discredit tracks like these claiming they lack originality and craftsmanship. The verses and beats might be recycled but, as in the case of DJ Dibella, the combinations bring a refreshingly new sound to my ear drums. At times I felt like my high school mixer memories were clashing with my college party days. Revisiting forgotten bangers like “Kiss Kiss” and Daft Punk’s “Around The World” while simultaneously hitting Deadmau5 tracks is the perfect formula for an instant eargasm. We’ve posted plenty of his tracks on FNT and will continue to do so but if you’re craving more, check out his Soundcloud, Facebook page and Twitter for additional content.
