Für die 13. Saison auf Ibiza und die dazugehörige Warum-Up Summer Mix-CD sind für euch dies mal Cassy und Joris Voorn am Start!
Not without good reason is the motto of this year’s Cocoon Ibiza season “Into the Magic", as the sun-drenched Balearic island is steeped in a special enchantment. So, with great enthusiasm, the team around Sven Väth apply themselves to the 13th season in Ibiza, and you don’t have to be a prophet to predict some historic club nights at the Amnesia. Also the acoustic ‘warm up’ in the form of the Cocoon Ibiza Summer Mix CD, established in 2007, makes your eyes glow intensely with excitement this year, as Cocoon was able to get Cassy and Joris Voorn doing the mix, two absolute DJ highlights in this season. It’s no less than three times that Catherine Britton aka Cassy is present in this year’s Ibiza line up (e.g. at the Season Opening and Closing). For more than ten years, the multi-national Berlin resident is an essential part of the global Tech House scene and can look back on many releases on Perlon, Ostgut Ton, Playhouse as well as her own label Cassy. Her DJ style is characterized by an intensive and groove-accented mixture of reduced rhythmic elements with a certain intuition for warm and sensual Soul, which got her residencies at Berlin’s Panoramabar, the Rex Club in Paris or the Trouw in Amsterdam, and already totally excited the audience on her 2009 Cocoon mix CD “Simply Devotion". In her current set, Cassy dives deep into the magic of Dub House: with a stunningly deep delay wonderland, “Kaimanawa” by the Swiss Cavalier aka Agnes sets a distinctive exclamation mark, right at the start of the mix, while the percussive “Put That Record Back On” by DJ Dan in the remix of Peace Division remains committed to the traditions of US Housetrax and “Cortometraggio” by Alfredo Caforio and Gianni Sabato aka Rush? applies a very literal sense to the name of the French label Bass Culture. Apropos Bass Culture: Cassy’s favourite producer at the moment, Mr. G (former member of The Advent), embellishes the track list with three jewels: with tropical House deepness ("New Dayz")
