Before his career, Høiberg represented Norway in the DMC World DJ Championships from 2006 to 2009 under the pseudonym DJ Final. His debut extended play (EP), Mirror Maru, was then released on 22 October 2012 as Cashmere Cat. The diversity and influence of multiple genres gained support from notables such as Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and Gilles Peterson. The EP's title track was later included on the soundtrack to Grand Theft Auto V in 2013.

He continued to gain recognition when his edit of 2 Chainz' "No Lie" topped the list of "25 Awesome Genre-Benders of 2012" from international magazine VIBE. In January 2013, musician Benny Blanco invited Cashmere to Los Angeles to collaborate on production work and gave him his first concerts in the United States. That summer, he moved from Norway to Manhattan.

Almost a year later on 11 February 2014, his second EP Wedding Bells was released. In August, he produced and featured in "Be My Baby" from Ariana Grande's second studio album My Everything. He was also one of the opening acts during Grande's The Honeymoon Tour. One of his songs, "Adore", was also performed during the tour.

2016-present: 9, other contributions

On 28 February 2016, Cashmere confirmed that his debut studio album, previously titled Wild Love, was on the way for 2016. On 29 July, Cashmere co-produced "Wolves", alongside Sinjin Hawke, for Kanye West's seventh studio album The Life of Pablo. On 26 August, "Wild Love" was released as the lead single from his debut studio album and featured The Weeknd and Francis and the Lights. "Trust Nobody" featuring Selena Gomez and Tory Lanez, was released as the second single on 30 September. "Love Incredible" was released as the third single on 17 February 2017 following the leak of the song a day prior. It featured Camila Cabello and was co-produced by Sophie.

On 31 March, the fourth single from Cashmere's debut album, "9 (After Coachella)" premiered on SoundCloud and featured MØ and Sophie. On 10 April, he announced on Twitter that the debut album was renamed from Wild Love to 9, reflecting the fourth single, and that production was completed. During late April, the official album tracklist was revealed, showing that The Weeknd, Francis and the Lights, Selena Gomez, Tory Lanez, Camila Cabello, MØ and SOPHIE are all featured appearances that will remain on the album. Others were revealed to be Kehlani, Kacy Hill, Ariana Grande, Ty Dolla Sign and Jhené Aiko.
