When one thinks of Cashmere Cat, usually electronics spring to mind; however, it’s important to remember that, while Magnus August Høiberg is continually defining and redefining electronic music, he has classical roots somewhere inside him. If there’s one person that sees Høiberg’s music as something more than just a soundform, it’s piano extraordinaire, snaches. This soon-to-be YouTube sensation only started uploading videos to the popular video service a month ago, but with every upload he is becoming increasingly more likeable (see: his first upload was a cover of Pitbull). While we were quite impressed by his cover of Vanderway‘s groovy re-cut of Daft Punk, his latest, and finest offering to date—a cover of CC‘s “With Me“—has us up in arms. Now, I’m no piano whiz, but I know a
good SENSATIONAL cover when I one, and this is definitely one of those instances!
