New Cashmere Cat – “Aurora”

cashmere cat

Today marks the release date of Belgian label Pelican Fly’s momentous Feathers compilation, a tape that should elevate the DJ Slow helmed label into the stratosphere of forward thinking dance music outposts. We’ve already featured Sinjin Hawke’s contribution to Feathers, and today we’re lucky enough to get a big one from one of 2012’s breakout stars Cashmere Cat. It’s been an amazing ride for the Norwegian producer, in no small part because a Cashmere Cat song is almost instantly recognizable in its mixture of left-field percussion elements (what up pitched down vocals) and traditional musicality (hey there unexpectedly beatific piano keys). In an incredibly short period of time, Cashmere Cat has become one of the most recognizable names in the ever-growing intersection of contemporary hip hop and electronic music and has impressed with literally every song he’s put out to date. Stream “Aurora” below and Lucid’s contribution to Feathers after the jump. Grab Feathers here.
