If you’re like most music producers juggling the logistics of home life with studio time you’re going to love this episode…
Today I’m sitting down with Cassy, a globally in-demand DJ and producer who boasts landmark recorded mixes for the likes of Panorama bar and Fabric, and has releases on a who’s who of labels from Aus Music to Uzuri and Bass Culture.
Now, this conversation is a real ride…
We dig deep into Cassy’s journey through the highs and the lows of pursuing a career that she so clearly loves. From how she creates and collaborates with her music, the equipment she uses, and playing all over the world, all of that good stuff, to her personal struggles and balancing the magic whilst also wrestling with the difficult aspects of the industry.
We discussed the challenges, the opportunities, the things about the scene that really lights Cassy up and the things that put her off…
…and even had her questioning whether she wanted to carry on or not.
If you’re looking to forge a career as a DJ or producer in today’s scene then this super candid conversation is essential listening.
- “The things that motivate you are more important than the fame and the glamor.”
- “I only learn to do things if I have to use it and apply it”
- It’s your music and you should do whatever you want with it. Don’t care too much about what other people say.
- Don’t allow your fears and worries to get in the way of being your authentic selves.
- Stop waiting for the perfect moment, the perfect setup, the perfect life. Learn to work with what you’ve got and just make the best use of it.
- You don’t have to be an amazing producer to produce good music. You just have to have the right ideas and be creative and be daring and also be confident with your ideas.
- There’s opportunity mixed with difficulty and challenges. Adapt and let things go. Don’t take things personally. Ride out the challenges so that you can enjoy more of the good stuff.
