On Wednesday, May 13th, Midweek Techno proudly presents another Boston first time appearance and one of our most anticipated bookings of 2009.
From Berlin we welcome Panorama Bar resident DJ extraordinaire Cassy. As a DJ / producer in the vast cosmos that is electronic music, to have a unique sound is an artists greatest strength.Â Cassy has that sound and it sounds like deep hypnotic analogue magic, finished off with one of the most recognizable voices in dance music today.Â Almost always repetitive and sometimes even incomprehensible, her subliminal crooning and flawlessly programmed VINYL ONLY DJ sets have propelled Cassy to the top of undergrounds most wanted list. Deeply inspired by electronic music and the club scene of Austria and England, as a young adult Cassy wanted a piece of the action. Her first instinct was to use her background as singer to provide vocals on other artists records, which worked for her first musical release, but she was soon convinced that if she could not only involve herself as a singer but to learn how to mix records she would get much further.Â This philosophy worked extremely well for her and by 2003 she made the pilgrimage to Berlin and proceeded to build a reputation as a talented house and minimal DJ. Cassyâ€™s first real big break was when she secured a residency at the legendary Panorama Bar and had the honor of mixing â€œPanorama Bar 01â€ on Ostgut TontrÃ¤ger, the record label of Berlinâ€™s Berghain club.Â This was the doorway that lead to collaborations with some of the big boys of modern dance music such as Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano and Steve Bug. With a start on Genevaâ€™s Mental Groove Records to date Cassy has released original tracks and remixes on labels such as M_nus, Playhouse, Get Physical, Perlon, Dessous, Cocoon and her own label appropriately named Cassy.
