The Young Saudi Artist recently performed on the main stage of SOUNDSTORM 2022 and is currently touring on her latest EP, “Ascension”, with a stop at Ultra Miami end of March.
MDLBEAST Records announced that Saudi DJ/producer and global artist, Cosmicat, has signed a worldwide representation deal with MDLBEAST Records. She will be making her United States debut at Ultra Miami on March 25th, 2023.
Cosmicat’s unique sound effortlessly blends elements of Pop, R&B, and Hip-Hop. Her unique blend of genres has captivated audiences from Saudi’s underground dance parties to performances at SOUNDSTORM, Exit Festival, Tomorrowland, and Boiler Room among other major global festivals and platforms.
“We are thrilled to have an artist as dynamic and vibrant as Cosmicat on MDLBEAST Records. Her audience continues to grow worldwide, with her recent EP “Ascension” being well received by influential international DJs, at radio and on Global DSPs, and with US, UK and European festival shows planned for this year. She is blowing up worldwide and MDLBEAST is behind her 100%,” stated Talal Albahiti, COO of MDLBEAST Records.
The artist made her first major appearance at MDLBEAST’s inaugural festival SOUNDSTORM in Saudi Arabia in 2019, performing to hundreds of thousands. She has been a staple headliner at parties across the MENA region, and globally ever since.
“I am so grateful to MDLBEAST Records for this opportunity to partner and grow together. As a Saudi label with global ambitions, my music and their vision are very much aligned,” Cosmicat said. “I can’t wait to show Miami—and the world—what we are able to do.”
Cosmicat grew up in Jeddah at a time when parties and public performances were considered taboo and a career as a musician was almost impossible to pursue. In the absence of venues and opportunities, Cosmicat started DJing in her bedroom, using online tutorials and her innate understanding of music to write, vocalize and produce her first tracks. In 2018, she began performing for Saudi’s underground music community at private parties. In the few years since, she has gone on to share stages with some of the industry’s biggest names, including R3HAB, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Solomun, Peggy Gou, and Jamie Jones. Her incredible journey was also recently featured in HYPEBEAST Diaries, earning over a million views.
Cosmicat began to cement herself as a genre-spanning music producer in 2020 when she collaborated with French Electronic Producer Yann Dulché to release her first official single “Dilemma”. Her subsequent release “Toxic Romance” made an immediate impact, followed by two other singles “Mashawear” and “Yalla”. On February 2, 2023, Cosmicat released her EP “Ascension”.
With this partnership, MDLBEAST Records continues to be at the forefront of representing the next generation of both Saudi and global artists, locally, regionally, and abroad. Critically, Cosmicat continues to serve as a role model for aspiring artists across the Middle East, especially female musicians, on what is now possible within the region’s thriving music scene.
