Trailblazing Norwegian producer Magnus Hoiberg—the Internet has known him as Cashmere Cat since his debut on Pelican Fly last year—has signed a new EP to electronic staple LuckyMe. A listen to “With Me,” the single lifted from the forthcoming Wedding Bells, should clear any doubt as to the signing’s justifiableness.

Blending melodic elegance of satin R&B with low-end interest of club-aspirant US hip-hop, “With Me” is heady and pulverizing at once. LuckyMe of course are no stranger to such a transatlantic symbiosis of sound, evinced by their now-big name roster of artists, such as Hudson Mohawke, who has worked with Yeezus himself; Rustie with Danny Brown; Lunice with Rockie Fresh, to name a few.

Wedding Bells, the first time Cashmere Cat will be put to wax, is slated for a January release. For now, stream the befitting single below; cop it on iTunes. Cashmere Cat’s “With Me” debuted yesterday on Zane Lowe‘s BBC 1 show.
