New Yorker’s emerging electronic three-piece Cash Cash – which consists of best friends and brothers, Jean Paul Makhlouf, Alex Makhlouf and Samuel Frisch – has taken dance-music enthusiasts by storm with its vibrant remixes and energetic electro-pop originals. Reigning on top of the Hype Machine charts (and recently landing #1 Popular Chart placement for their remix of Icona Pop’s “All Night,”) Cash Cash truly impresses with their originally produced material and celebrates the success of its own single “Take Me Home” feat. Bebe Rexha. Cash Cash performs live at CUSP on Rainey in Austin, Texas on Friday, March 14.
