Catherine Britton aka Cassy left England for Austria with her Caribbean father and Austrian mother in 1975. She spent her childhood in Vienna and Lower Austria learning to sing and studying music at an early age. After studying drama and acting in London for three years she returned to her hometown of Vienna and began working in the theatre. But she soon gave up acting when she realised she couldn't stand the profession.
Her first professional step into the electronic music world was as a vocalist for Elin aka Autorepeat on 'Music Takes Me Higher' on Sabotage Records. Electric Indigo was able to convince Cassy to not only involve herself as a singer but to learn how to mix records. After her first DJ gig in Vienna, Munich and further productions she met Dave the Hustler in Geneva where they started working on a collaborative project for Mental Groove, Cassy & Dave the Hustler. Geneva was also where she met Luciano, co-producing 'La Ondita' on his album 'Blind Behaviour'. She also co-produced 'Alpine Rocket' with Mathew Jonson for Perlon.
After moving to Berlin in 2003 and being inspired by the club scene and music, she worked with artists such as Ricardo Villalobos and Steve Bug and has also had releases on Perlon Records. Recently she started her own label Cassy, She regularly spins at the Panoramabar in Berlin.
