At the early age of 13, Cashmere (aka Benn Lian) was already intrigued by the scene and together with his big brother he opened a small and cosy club were they threw intimate parties for friends & family. Armed with a second-hand mixer, a tape deck and two old cd-players he took charge of the music and he immediately lost his heart to the 4/4 beat.
As the years passed, Cashmere searched for his own musical identity and started to develop his own and unique style of music. This ‘identity’ got him noticed by some very influential people in the club scene and in no time he was playing in both small and big clubs all over the country. But Belgium wasn’t enough. He aimed for international fame with some great gigs in The Netherlands, France, Germany, Spain, Ibiza, Thailand and even Tokyo Japan. Over the years he rocked not only clubs, but also large parties and festivals with his infamous dance floor attacks!
However, playing other people’s tracks wasn’t enough for Cashmere. With his keen sense of music it didn’t take long before he started to produce his own songs as well. At first this was just for fun, but as we all now practice makes perfect and after years of intensive studio time, his productions began to sound better and better. Cashmere decided it was time to take things to the next level and invested in his own studio. This was a logical but very crucial step in his career as a dj/producer. As his productions became more professional, more and more people picked up his tracks and the first record deal with Steve Lawler’s Viva Music was soon to be made.
Nowadays you can find Cashmere playing in his home country and far beyond. When he’s not busy touring, you’ll probably find him in his studio, working on new tracks and remixes, and trying to innovate his music and improve his techniques even more.
