Biography

MØ MØ may not mind how you say her name, but you'd better start practicing your Danish pronunciation. The 26-year-old singer-songwriter crash landed on the radar of those in the know in 2013 and spent much of last year gunning for the mainstream following the release of her acclaimed debut album No Mythologies To Follow - a unique blend of bedroom beats, soul punkelectro-R&B and pop harmonies - alongside a number of buzz worthy collaborations and a relentless touring schedule that would put most so-called pop stars to shame. If there’s any justice in the world, she’s about to break big. Karen Marie Ørsted grew up on Funen, one of Denmark's largest islands, and she wrote her first song when she was seven years old. Even then there were traces of the bittersweet heartache that forms the backbone of her current skewed pop: the first single was called 'Don't Believe What People Say’. Karen was a pop obsessive until she became a teenager when she became very involved with politics, punk and the anti-fascism movement, leading her to discover the music of Sonic Youth, Black Flag, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, amongst others. At 18 she formed a “noisy, trashy electro-pop punk band” named Mor with her friend Josefine. But Karen had started to write songs on her own, trying out a variety of sounds and styles on her laptop in her bedroom, and in 2009, she became MØ. At first, MØ was almost a character, a larger-than-life exaggeration of Karen's attitude. But slowly she found her own voice, swapping the rapping for singing and then meeting Ronni Vindahl, a producer & guitarist whose work Kendrick Lamar used on “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. Suddenly everything fell into place and the sound of MØ was born. CASHMERE CAT Magnus August Høiberg, best known as Cashmere Cat, is a Norwegian musician, producer and DJ (representing Norway in the DMC World DJ Championships as DJ FINAL 2006-2009). He appeared on the international electronic dance music scene in 2012, with remixes/edits of Lana Del Rey, 2 Chainz and Jeremih. His 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 has gained support from major electronic music artists such as Hudson Mohawke and Rustie. 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".Superstar producer Benny Blanco invited Høiberg to Los Angeles in January 2013, to collaborate on studio productions for artists like Maroon 5 and Jeremih, and to give his first US concerts as Cashmere Cat.
