5 treats from Cashmere Cat’s Reddit AMACashmere Cat Live Coachella 2015 Billboard 1548

Following the release of his second LP, Cashmere Cat took some time to dial in with his fanbase via Reddit yesterday, spreading the love and offering a rare glimpse into the Norwegian’s personal life as well as his creative process with his new digitalized band member, Princess Catgirl.

The AMA was not simply reduced to Cashmere Cat’s answering of fan questions; the open-floor also gave him and his fanbase a chance to show their appreciation for one another. It’s clear that while most touring musicians are somewhat in touch with their listeners, the way that Cashmere Cat’s fans relate to him and Princess Catgirl is considerably more nuanced—given the artist’s bashful, somewhat elusive disposition.

On the process of creating Princess Catgirl and her emboldening of her creator.

Billy Kenny and Huxley take to the dance floor on “SWEAT,” and Feenixpawl and Marcus Santoro bring the feels with “Forever Young.” Cristoph puts his own spin on The Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition,” and Dom Dolla plays with words on “San Frandisco.” David Guetta remixes himself as Jack Back in a new remix of “Thing For You,” and Luttrell paints a serene soundscape with his remix of Jai Wolf and Mr Gabriel’s “Lose My Mind.”

FKA twigs delivers new Skrillex-produced Future collaboration, ‘Holy Terrain’Fka Twigs Holy Terrain Future Single Stream 1

Ahead of her upcoming LP Magdalene, FKA twigs has dropped off a surprise collaboration with Future titled “Holy Terrain,” with production credits from Skrillex and Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff. The track finds FKA twigs gliding over a minimal, moody hip-hop beat while Future accents twigs’ vocalizing with distant ad libs before delivering his own spacey, auto-tuned bridge verse.

“Holy Terrain” is another portfolio diversifying piece from Skrillex who has spent the summer on a scorching release streak, most recently a floor-primed dance cut with Ty Dolla $ign and Boys Noize. This latest offering is the OWSLA head’s most reserved cut of the summer, effortlessly matching FKA twigs’ chilling vocal performance.

Magdalene is set to be released on October 25. It will be twigs’ first long-player since 2014’s LP1. In addition to Skrillex, Future and Antonoff’s contribution to the record, Nicolas Jaar, Cashmere Cat, and other taste-makers are credited with appearances on the forthcoming album. See the video for “Holy Terrain” below.

Cashmere Cat’s Princess Catgirl returns ‘FOR YOUR EYES ONLY’

Cashmere Cat’s Princess Catgirl returns ‘FOR YOUR EYES ONLY’Cashmere Cat RBGH

Cashmere Cat has summoned Princess Catgirl once again for the project and persona’s second single, “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY.” The new tune arrives a month after “EMOTIONS,” which introduced the upcoming album from the Nordic bass master. This new piece takes on a calmer tone, however, which only helps the sentimentality Cashmere Cat injected into the mix. Vocoded vocals from the track’s predecessor return, where they’re embedded in a bed of gentle synth progressions and subtle string elements. Slowly but surely, a cohesive album story of Princess Catgirl is beginning to fall into place.

Akin Princess Catgirl‘s inaugural single, “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY” comes with a music video further depicting the adventures of the album’s namesake protagonist. It seems the entirely of the album is slated to be an audiovisual adventure.

ORBIT Playlist: Wave Racer weaves ‘Summer Rain’-themed soundtrack

Wave Racer‘s return to the electronic eye has been met with ardent excitement from the cult-like sector of the scene’s bubble-trap enthusiasts. The producer of retro video game-redolent soundscapes recently procured a follow-up to his first release in years, “Auto,” with “Summer Rain,” featuring hip-hop vocalist, Kwame.

A masterful innovator within his exceedingly nuanced niche, Wave Racer has curated a “Summer Rain”-themed playlist exclusively for Dancing Astronaut, chock-full of offerings from a litany of his pleasantly unorthodox and like-minded counterparts, including Cashmere Cat, Mr. Oizo, and Clairo. The playlist is meant to embody the reverie and idealism ingrained in the fundamental fibers of “Summer Rain.”

“‘Summer Rain’ is a song about infatuation and the sensations that come along with it, and these selections similarly reflect those sensations, whilst also demonstrating the ongoing shifts and evolutions of my personal and tastes and artistic influences,” says Wave Racer of his intention with the selects.

I guess you could say i was scared.. so i created princess catgirl to be the face of my music. she makes me feel safe.” – Cashmere Cat wrote via Twitter recently.

Just this week, Norwegian future-bass anomaly, Cashmere Cat took to social media to announce his forthcoming album and newly concepted digital persona of the same name, PRINCESS CATGIRL. Today, fans get a glimpse of the project’s lead single, “EMOTIONS,” a bright and bass-y rattler that shows Cashmere Cat returning to his hyper-melodic roots following the 2018’s collaboration with Major Lazer, “Miss You.”

Cashmere Cat pounced over to YouTube for a Q&A with fans before dropping the official music video for “EMOTIONS” Friday afternoon. Therein, he revealed that the vocal track for the single is attributed to none-other than PRINCESS CATGIRL herself, and that fans can anticipate the full album dropping “really soon…hopefully.” It’s still unclear if the vocoded vocal belongs to the producer himself or a yet-to-be-named entity.

The video for “EMOTIONS” gives PRINCESS CATGIRL a proper introduction to the Cashmere collective, playing and prancing among the Cat’s sonic effervescence. A technical feat in itself, the music video employs a staff of over a dozen, choreographed and performed by Margaret Qualley, recognizable from recent Once Upon a Time In… Hollywood fame.
