“Do What You Love. Love What You Do.”
Getting his first turntables and a mixer at age 9, DJ Cassidy is a pure example of what can happen when you do exactly that. Admitting openly during his visit to Sway in the Morning “it was my passion, it was my hobby and eventually it became my job”. Where did that passion come from? It was sparked by “Breaking”, Afrika Bambaataa, and Grandmaster Flash – amazing start when it comes to influence.
As our conversation continued Sway and DJ Cassidy got into how he was able to grasp different genres individually and create something original with one goal in mind since a young age: Play all music for all people all over the world. His upcoming album ‘Paradise Royale‘ may just be that project.
Supported by some of the best instrumentation possible (including a few that worked with Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan and more) DJ Cassidy recently released a brand new single “Future Is Mine” featuring Chromeo off the upcoming project. Beautifully put together with the best from that era combined with the likes of Robin Thicke, Melanie Fiona, R. Kelly and many others to provide music lovers with an incredible body of work stretching generations.
When will the album be coming out? Those that truly love the art of music will more than enjoy this discussion.
