Cassady Locke is an old friend, a dj/producer who lives in Brooklyn NY. He loves R&B, Soca, UK Garage, and M.U.S.C.L.E., and he puts weird seaweed protein in his smoothies. For his new EP on T&A Records, Locke draws inspiration from the UK. Influenced equally by classic garage producers such as Wookie and MJ Cole, and new artists like Sbtrkt with a strong nod to 90’s R&B Locke bridges the gap between Teddy Riley and Gorgon City. With a strong Jersey Club remix from our own DJ Ayres, the EP is a no-brainer, and it’s a free download!
He has had records under Cassady Locke and just Cassady going back like 15 years, including these Latin-flavored collaborations with Sabo on Bersa Discos:
Beatport has more on Sol Selectas and on Statra, a NY deep house label:

Stay up with Cassady:
We’ll be taking over the basement of Santos Party House for the Freedom Party on October 10th! Super stoked to join Herbert, Cosi, Marc Smooth, and crew. Will surely be a night to remember. Come through!
While we’re in the party mood. Download our latest Rub Radio with tons of new rap tunes.
DJ Platurn has been the homie for so long that we can’t remember how many times he’s played The Rub. (Maybe 3, maybe 4?) In the time we’ve known him, he has released a gazillion mixes (check out “So This Is De La Heaven” parts 1 & 2) and a never-ending stream of edits & remixes, as well as making The 45 Sessions THE single most important 7″s party in the country. (They’ve even got Diamond D and The 45 King guesting in December!?!?)
As he always does, Platurn will be smashing the front room with hip hop, funk, soul, and a gang of surprises! Catch Platurn at The Rub this Saturday Sept 27th!
