The cat isn’t entirely out of the bag yet…but he’s getting there. Cashmere Cat has been happy to remain mostly behind the scenes, up to this point, focusing his efforts more on his collaborative work with some of the top names in pop, R&B and hip-hop rather than toot his own meow. But even that board work has threatened to make him a household name, at least among the kinds of households that obsessively scan Yeezy album credits. As Fader wrote, “The introverted producer—who’s lent beats to Kanye West, Ariana Grande, and Tinashe—is pop’s new not-so-secret weapon.”
He’s about to get even less clandestine, with his first full-length album under his own nom de plume. It’s too soon for Cashmere Cat to reveal just which vocalists he’s enlisted for his feature debut, although you could make a good guessing game would naturally include some of the marquee names who’ve previously enlisted his producing efforts. But there’s already a significant cachet of fans who would sign up for pre-orders with or without featured artists. Cashmere Cat is a destination producer-DJ-writer-maestro.
