Known for her encyclopaedic knowledge of electronic music history and a record bag to match it. This has made Cassy one of the most respected selectors of her generation. Cassy is an unrelenting ball of positivity behind the decks, delivering high quality to every dance floor she plays to. This passion has gained her residencies at Panorama Bar, Trouw, DC-10 and Rex Club, as well as an impressive list of the world’s most influential club spaces.
Cassy was born in England and raised in Vienna by her Austrian mother and father from Barbados. Through them and their music friends she met jazz heavyweights such as Sun Ra, Archie Shepp and Lester Bowie at a young age. For a while she studied drama in London, but returned to Vienna and got involved in the city’s booming scene for techno and electronic music. Soon she started DJing: ”I got obsessed and didn’t want to stop”, she has said. In 2016 Cassy released her eclectic and emotive debut album Donna. Exclaim wrote about it: ”The real triumph here, though, is the sense of creative freedom that pervades the album.”
