French composers named ‘Supermassive’ make upbeat music combining various styles. The duo of Simon Aubert and Edgar Joly collaborate with many other musicians and singers. But they’re also known for viral videos of musical cats and dogs who tend to take over the studio when they’re not home!
The duo introduced their latest single, “Rockstar,” with a poster replacing their faces with cats, asking, “Guess who composed it?” For a hint, the band is now called “Supermeowssive.”

Supermassive DJ Cat
Their first viral video reached 40 million views in a week, titled, “What cats do when you’re not home,” made during the pandemic. The video features Catvicii, also known as James Paterson, Pat’, or DJ Cat Paterson. He became quite the sound engineer and producer, recording his meows, auto-tuning, and mixing them into a song. Pleased with himself, the guys return to find him sitting in the studio chair.

Making Supermassive Music
On the orange kitty’s Instagram, he reveals secrets of how he makes music. As he contemplates sounds, he crosses his paws to help him concentrate.
“I like to cross my paws when I’m thinking about new productions; it helps me to have a better idea of what I’ll do. Stay safe, and don’t let your human tell you what you have to do. Cats power,” the kitty shared.
Like the guys, Pat’ has collaborated with many artists, such as his dog siblings and even a celebrity monkey named Georgie Boy.
The Secret Life of the Supermassive Cat
Supermassive recently shared what they found when they attached a cam to Pat’s collar. It looks like he had a rave to shake up the neighborhood. In this case, it’s not out of the realm of possibility. We’ve previously shared the story of a cat that decided to have a house party and blasted an apartment building with music in Spain. And another orange cat named Mr. Peach recently surprised a crowd with an impromptu musical performance in San Francisco.
Orange cats seem to be natural musicians!
