Cassy aims to release solo project
The Miami New Times heralded her "flawless wardrobe" and "crisp beats," not to mention an "ultra chic" dancing experience every time she takes over the turntables. Rolling Stone also called her "one of the DJs that will rule Planet Earth."
If you missed seeing Cassy perform in 2014, we're wondering how you did. She was a fixture on the club circuit the world over. Touring took her everywhere from DC-10, Ibiza to Air, Tokyo (via Mexico), Serbia, Berlin, and back to New York. And of course she closed out the year joining a stellar lineup for Eastern Electrics' New Years Eve party at Studio 338 in Greenwich, south London. She was joined at the event by fellow DJs including Matthias Tanzmann, Agoria and Route 94.
Cassy recently told the website Deflected.com that she feels like there's some classic music and good energy right now on the electronic scene, but confesses that she doesn't "really pay much attention" to what's going on around her.
Though Cassy hasn't divulged plans for 2015, she said during the aforementioned interview she wants to find the right way to release a solo project. She specifically mentioned having more control across the whole project so it's exactly as she wants it to be. She's expressed hope that others in the industry step back and focus on whether they're, "DJing well or not, or producing well or not. I think there are ways of doing everything but they need to make sense in terms of the bigger picture."
Cassy Britton takes Coachella by storm (Created June 26, 2013)
Cassy Britton made a big splash when she debuted at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in early April 2013, sliding into the spot reserved for techno giant Richie Hawtin after a technical mishap prevented him from playing. Enter Cassy, who absolutely engaged the crowd and demonstrated a mastery of the decks that let an old school, underground feel wash over the crowd in Riverside County, California.
Just who is Cassy? If you don't know her name by now, you will soon. Between holding residences at some of the world's most renowned clubs, including Panoramabar in Berlin, she's also found the time to collaborate with techno kings like Ricardo Villalobos and Kirk Degiorgio. And, oh yeah, she's also been featured as one of Rolling Stone magazine's "25 Top DJs That Rule The Earth."
World domination may not be on her radar, but Cassy is well on her way to becoming a force in the industry. She draws on her background as a singer and actor, especially the three years she spent studying drama and acting in London, not to mention some theater work in her hometown of Vienna. But it was her first professional step into the music world where Cassy felt at home, and after her first DJ gig she was hooked.
After moving to Berlin in 2003 and being inspired by the energetic club scene, she worked with artists like Steve Bug and Ricardo Villalobos. After a couple of releases on Perlon Records she also started her own label, and continues to take her unique house and techno sounds around the world.
