ADVENT 2016 #06 – CASSY

It’s fair to say 2016 has be a super solid year for Cassy, one of the first residents at Berlins Prestigious Parnorama and a long standing resident at Amsterdam’s seminal Trouw, this year saw her continue her residency at Ibiza’s Circo Loco as well as return shows at Parnorama bar and a steady stream of appearances home and abroad. She’s also secured what will be her second South American tour starting in Jan 2017, where she’ll play the 10th anniversary of the BPM Festival. 2016 saw her BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix debut, as well as her first Mixmag coverA remix for La Fleur’s Flowerhead Reprise‘ Ep, highlighted her credits as a producer, but most notably the release of her debut album ‘Donna‘ on AUS this summer, cemented her as one of House music’s finest moguls.

Cassy is now set to release the first in a run of remixes over the coming months, but for todays advent, we’re bringing you the beautiful video of ‘Back‘ which was the debut release from ‘Donna‘. London-based director Reza Dolatabadi ran with the theme of female unity for the video, bringing together a mysterious group of women in an intense dance-off. “Almost 90% of the performance is improvised,” says Dolatabadi “My brief to the dancers was to think of a situation that could make you very sad, angry or happy and work it out in your performance.” a stunning piece of visual art, to accompany a stunning production.
