[Audio] Cassian’s ‘The Ninth’

 

cassian

The king of the Sydney scene, Cassian, is back with a new release. The 8 Voices EP is out this week and we’ve already has a taste of what to expect from it. Our favourite track so far is the gloriously energetic and sun-kissed The Ninth. Pure summer dance grooves.

Leading with a deep and soulful bassline over a solid House beat, The Ninth builds itself in waves of lush synths and atmospheric vocal snatches. Skippy purcussion and as nod to Deep House keep the track dancefloor interesting while your head can be occupied by the onslaught of rich retro synths  in the tunes second half. Euphoric as hell.

Cassian’s 8 Voices EP is released 13th December.

[Audio] Cassian reMixes Owl Eyes’ ‘Hurricane’

 

Owl Eyes

Released next month is Australian singer Owl EyesNightmixes EP. As part of the collection fellow Australian and purveyor of all thing Funky and Housey Cassian has taken Owl Eyes’ Hurricane and turned it into a poolside Disco monster. Enjoy,

There’s so much space in this track. It’s just six minutes of laid back, carefree Nu-Disco and classic House with loads of room for it to breathe. Spread out over the six minutes are punchy digital basslines with a Chicago feel, twisted up vocal snatches, slightly Tropical leads, lush pads and an overall adherence to a lazy groove. Cassian never fails to deliver, and this floorfilling reMix is no different. One for hot summer nights.

[MP3] Cassian’s ‘On & On’

cassian

Sydney producer Cassian has been laying low for a few months, since the summer, but he’s re-entering our consciousness in style with a brand new that that is not only hot as hell, but free too! This one’s perfect for getting you in the mood for a weekend’s partying.

On & On has got a driving bassline, with just a twist of Funk, that’s guaranteed to get you moving. A punchy digital sound that follows the beat, the bassline power this tune onward and upward. Floaty female vocal samples drift in and out of the track with buzzing synths infect your brain. It;s groovy enough to slot into a Disco set but loaded with House cool. Deep, breezy, good times.

Cassian’s ‘Love Cuts’

Cassian

Next month Nürvous Records will be releasing the new double A-side single from Cassian, one of Australia’s funkiest producers. It’s been all about the reMixes and DJ sets for Cassian recently, but by the sounds of the two tracks contained in ‘Love Cuts’ he’s bot been sitting on his production laurels.

Made up of ‘I Love It’ and ‘Reach For Love’, the EP presents two instant classic Disco tinged House tracks. ‘I Love It’ is the track that instantly grabbed us, it’s built around a killer deep bassline. Raw and analog, it’s totally hypnotic and has both a Rough Disco and a Chicago vibe to it, the whole track plays out like the best things about House music with some searing early ‘90’s Bleep House synths in the mix too. The A-side, ‘Reach For Love’ is a really nostalgic slice of  House. Bouncy, rounded bassline and soulful vocal in tow. It’s very hands-in-the-air peak time House, and one of the best examples of it we’ve seen in a while.

Cassian’s ‘Love Cuts’ is released 19th June.

Bag Raiders reMixed by Cassian

bag_raiders

This huge reMix of, one of my favourite bands, Bag Raiders’ ‘Snake Charmer’ has been a staple of Cassian’s DJ sets for almost a year now, so it’s pretty exciting that he’s just been given the go-ahead to release it to the world.

This mix plays around with the tracks lead riff, then goes crazy with the percussion. It’s a track that strikes me as a big summer festival tune that would go down a storm with 20,000 other people in a muddy field. Maybe this summer we’ll see just such a happening.

Bag Raiders – Snake Charmer (Cassian reMix)

This remix is included on the fourth volume of Modular Recordings’ awesome, and absent for far too long, ‘Leave Them All Behind’ compilation series, out now.

Melbourne based Polygon Palace, Australia’s latest weapon in their bit to talk over the ElectroPop world, have dropped this awesome track about a time machine being built in Tokyo city. Sounding a little like some of the UK LaptopPop acts but with a bigger sound, ‘Tokyo Getaway’ is SynthPop with a garage sound.

The track is completely turned around into a slap bass heavy banger by Cryptonites while fellow Aussies Cassian rebuild the original track times 100 adding a sprinkling of Disco flavour.
