Magnus August Høiberg, best known under the artist name Cashmere Cat, is a Norwegian musician, producer and DJ/turntablist. He appeared on the international electronic dance music scene in 2012, with remixes/edits of Lana Del Rey, 2 Chainz and Jeremih.
Cashmere Cat's debut EP Mirror Maru was released in October 2012 on the Belgian Pelican Fly label. Cashmere Cat's take on seductive R&B, futuristic hip-hop and bass music gained support from electronic music notables such as Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and Gilles Peterson. The EP's title track, "Mirror Maru", was included on the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack in 2013.
In October 2012, Cashmere Cat's edit of 2 Chainz' "No Lie" was ranked by the influential VIBE music magazine as #1 on a list of "25 Awesome Genre-Benders of 2012". Benny Blanco invited him to Los Angeles in January 2013, to collaborate on studio production work and to give his first US concerts as Cashmere Cat.
In the summer of 2013, Høiberg moved from Norway to Manhattan. He currently works with Benny Blanco, LidoLido and artists like Jeremih, Miguel and Wiz Khalifa, and also does live performances at festivals and clubs in the US, Europe and Australia.
