With the current explosion of
electronic music, Cashmere Cat has definitely taken the reigns as one of the
front-runners of the genre. And on Friday, April 17th, he definitely
proved his chops behind the mixing table. It’s hard to confine him to a
specific caste of music, but for simplicity’s sake, he definitely brought down
the house at Pomona’s Glass House with his future bass sound.
He started off his set with “With
Me”, the first track off his latest Wedding Bells EP. With the lights dimmed,
and the crowded swaying in unison, we heard the familiar meowing sampled in
“With Me”. Within minutes the crowd was alive and jumping as his set progressed
with his infectiously danceable, heavy sound. Seamlessly, he teased in the
intro to another one of his highly recognizable songs, “Kiss Kiss”. The Glass
House roared with cheers, and as their hands went up, the crowd got down. There
wasn’t a single person who could refrain from dancing to his cheery, percussion
heavy, electronic production. Build up after build up, the Norwegian producer
kept the energy at 100% throughout the whole course of his set.
Boasting an energetic playlist of
many of his original songs, Cashmere Cat also shared with us some of his
masterful reworks of popular radio hits from the likes of The Weeknd, Miguel,
and 2 Chainz. Each track was effortlessly mixed into the next, and the audience
was treated with snares, bass, jingling bells, and harmonic synth. It’s safe to
say that every second within the Glass House that night was purrfect.
Obligatory cat pun aside, Cashmere Cat’s Friday night set at the Glass House
was an extraordinary dance party.
