Cash Cash is an American electronic music group from Roseland, New Jersey. The group currently consists of three DJs: brothers Jean Paul Makhlouf and Alex Makhlouf, and Samuel Frisch. They produce, record, mix and master all their music together as a trio. They are currently signed to Big Beat Records and Atlantic Records, a subsidiary of Warner Music Group worldwide. The group’s highest-charting song to date is “Take Me Home”, which features vocals by Bebe Rexha. As of 2016, the group has released four full-length albums, an array of EPs, singles, and provided official remixes for acts such as Krewella, Capital Cities, Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Showtek, and Icona Pop, along with producing and co-writing Krewella’s single “Live for the Night”.
The group slowly gained exposure in the dance community in 2012 and 2013, particularly via connections with Hardwell and Nicky Romero and releases on their boutique labels. During Ultra Music Festival 2013 on behalf of The Huffington Post, Cash Cash conducted interviews with both musicians. Cash Cash was featured on their respective radio shows, “Protocol Radio, and “Hardwell on Air.” On May 20, 2013, Cash Cash released a remix of “Symphonica” by Nicky Romero that was released on Beatport by Protocol Recordings. Romero also invited Cash Cash to perform at a Protocol Recordings showcase during the ADE festival on October 16, 2013, at the Melkweg in Amsterdam with Martin Garrix, Vicetone, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and John Dahlbäck.
Over the course of the early 2010s, the group began moving away from standard band instrumentation and began incorporating more elements of electronic dance music. In an interview with EDM Sauce, they talk about their transition being facilitated by frequent production and remixing on the side. Cash Cash stated, “I think for us it was a slow evolution, because we were always remixing and producing for other artists and doing outside production.”
