Stream: Cassian celebrates recent ‘On My Knees’ remix with ORBIT Playlist
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Cassian has had a 10-year-long career collaborating with some of the best in electronic music and becoming a staple in the genre at large. His relationship with acclaimed trio RÜFÜS DU SOL stems from the early days of their success; he was the mix engineer for three of their most notable albums Bloom, Solace, and, most recently, Surrender. Cassian has earned multiple Grammy nominations from the mixing work, and he even went on to release his debut LP, LAPS, and its follow-up, the REACTIVATE EP, on their imprint, Rose Ave Records. To top it all off, he also won this year’s Grammy Award for “Best Electronic/Dance Recording” for the Surrender single “Alive,” alongside RÜFÜS DU SOL.
That said, it’s only fitting that Cassian was recruited to remix one of the group’s biggest Surrender album singles, “On My Knees,” in the thick of a busy touring season for both artists. And now, Cassian is gracing Dancing Astronaut listeners with an ORBIT Playlist spanning several Cassian originals and groovy gems from other ears alike, including a collaboration with Hayden James, a Joris Voorn remix, and more.
“I wanted to put together a playlist that not only showcases tracks that I would play in a DJ set alongside my ‘On My Knees’ remix, but also of music that I feel was an inspiration for the remix. Primarily from friends and collaborators, but also from artists I admire from afar,” Cassian said of his ORBIT Playlist.
RÜFÜS DU SOL are currently on their expansive Surrender tour throughout the United States and will soon embark on eight dates in New Zealand and Australia this fall while Cassian is on the road supporting fellow Australian artist Hayden James. Purchase tickets here.
