DJ to the stars Cassidy launches debut album

DJ Cassidy wants everybody out on the dance floor with his debut album 'Paradise Royale'.

The influential DJ brought together a cast of A-list artists including Robin Thicke, Usher, Nigel Rogers and R. Kelly, for his project inspired by the feel-good vibes of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

“With ‘Paradise Royale’ I’ve created 10 explosive dance records,” said DJ Cassidy. “Every song is an up-tempo tune to get people moving. I sought out to channel what I believe to be the greatest and most universal dance music ever created.”

Already established as the DJ to the stars, Cassidy has performed for the likes of US president Barack Obama, Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

For this album, he found a new way of keeping the party rocking by taking his tune underground: “The concept for the ‘Make The World Go Around’ video was to bring a true melting pot to life and there’s no place on Earth that represents a melting pot better than a subway, than a train,” he said.

The album’s first single ‘Calling All Hearts’, featuring Robin Thicke and Jessie J, was warmly received by critics reaching the Top Ten singles chart in the UK.
