The time has come...
Cashmere Cat's debut album is finally here in the form of "9." It is an electronic journey through weird beat assortments and big name vocals. It would definitely be an amazing show to attend with the potential live effects that could be accompanied with the music. Some features include Kehlani, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Francis and the Lights, Ty Dolla $ign, Selena Gomez, Tory Lanez to name a few!
The album kicks of with a short intro from Kehlani starting the weird journey that is a Cashmere Cat album honing similar beat changes to Kanye's 'The Life of Pablo," which Cashmere had some work on. Then comes 'Europa Pools' where Cashmere plays with Kacy Hill's vocals changing the frequency and harmonies. '9 (After Coachella)' will definitely be one of the favourites from the album beginning with a xylophone type beat eventually being blessed with MØ's vocals added with a hard dubstep beat. 'Wild Love' sounds like a song taken straight from a Kanye auto-tune song, but with The Weeknd vocals backed by Francis and the Lights creating something beautiful. Ariana comes in for the song 'Quit,' slaying and boasting about a passionate relationship she cannot leave. 'Infinite Stripes' is the song on the album for me that takes the cake. Nothing Ty Dolla $ign is on disappoints. He soulfully sings over a reminiscent, time lapse sounding beat. 'Victoria's Veil' takes us back to Cashmere Cat's experimental beginnings. 'Trust Nobody' is another dance-friendly hit off this project with Selena Gomez on the catchy hook and Tory Lanez with a verse. This one reminds you of Selena's song 'It Ain't Me' with Kygo proving Selena has that voice every producer wants right now. Cashmere tends to gear towards female vocals continuing that with the song, 'Love Incredible.' "9" wraps it up with a Jhene Aiko track, 'Plz Don't Go.' Having appeared on the Chainsmokers album, Jhene appears on yet another dance/electronic project with this one sure to close out Cashmere Cat's sets this summer offering a bittersweet ending to his debut album..
