If you’ve never watched Cassy and the way she DJs, I highly recommend it. In the shot I took of her above at Movement 2012, the love of her craft shines through as she smiles, picking up the perfect record to play next. That genuine look cannot be forced and is at times nowadays lost amongst many DJs who play today. Never with Cassy.
There is something about the way she moves around the booth – I can only describe it as gliding or hovering, as if there are no actual footsteps involved. Each movement of hers is precise and never hurried. After she plays each record, she wipes it down with a soft cloth, as well as the turn table. Everything is so effortless and calm, it would seem she is standing at the sink hand washing dishes and not raising crowds to their feet. I watch with amazement that although her approach is gentle, almost caressing, she still commands the booth with her knowledge. Not to mention the six or seven bags of records that sit directly behind her that directly attest to her skill and knowledge of music.
From Movement in Detroit to the Cocoon party in WMC Miami, seeing her play in addition to listening is indeed something to really take in. Her musical selection always exquisite and varying in range, It comes as a pleasure to find out that she will be performing an extended set this Saturday at a location in Brooklyn that will be disclosed when you rsvp at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets may be purchased here on Resident Advisor. Event will run from 5pm to 2am, and your inbox will have the location earlier on Saturday.
Here is a little taste of what she sounds like on Cocoon:
