Cassy’s lifelong love affair with music makes her one of the most respected selectors of her generation. A dynamic, passionate DJ with an encyclopedic knowledge of electronic music history and a record bag to match it, she can dig deep in any given situation, bringing good vibes and contagious energy to the dance floor. With past residencies at Panorama Bar, Trouw, DC-10 and Rex Club, as well as an exhaustive list of the world’s most influential club spaces on her resume, Cassy is an unrelenting ball of positivity behind the decks, delivering high quality to every dance floor she plays to. A versatile and professional selector with an acute understanding of how to adapt to various settings, Cassy retains that unique touch that only she can provide, never losing sight of her own musical identity and staying true to the art of DJing every step of the way.
Born in England and raised in Austria by her Austrian mother and father from Barbados, Cassy was exposed to many cultures growing up and she was surrounded by music from birth. At the age of five she went to music school and, later, she met jazz musicians including Sun Ra, Archie Shepp and Lester Bowie, when they stayed at her parent’s countryside inn on their way to play an Austrian jazz festival. “They left a trace behind of somewhere I knew I belonged, without knowing how to get there,” she says. Artists like Spandau Ballet, Madness, Sarah Vaughan, Talking Heads, The Cure, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Gilles Peterson and the influential label Talking Loud are among the many influences during the early stages of her life, laying the unbreakable foundation that remains today.
