Cassy (real name Catherine Britton) was born in Kingston Upon-Thames, England to a Caribbean father and an Austrian mother. She moved to Austria as a child and then back to England as a young adult, performing stints as a singer and actress.
While living in Austria, Cassy was exposed to a diverse, high-quality electronic music scene, which offered everything from trance and techno to the eclectic sounds of artists like Kruder and Dorfmeister. This exposure spawned Cassy's passion for electronic music and eventually led her to begin a career as a DJ and producer. In 2003, Cassy moved to Berlin and proceeded to build a reputation as a talented house and minimal DJ. Among other accomplishments, she secured a residency at Panoramabar and had the honor of mixing the first Panoramabar compilation. She has collaborated with artists like Steve Bug, Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, DJ Elin (aka Autorepeat), Dave the Hustler, Mathew Jonson, and Swayzak. Her tracks and remixes have been released on labels like M_nus, Playhouse, Get Physical, Perlon, Dessous, and Mental Groove. She has also started the label "Cassy", where she has currently released two records, to serve as a vehicle for releasing her own music. While Cassy has achieved much as an electronic music DJ and producer, her achievements alone do not reveal the depth of her artistry.
