Our new Psychology of DJing series sees Gilles Peterson interview some of his favourite characters on the world DJ circuit to explore life behind the turntables. Covering a breadth of topics as varied as breastfeeding to the pressures of tough crowds, this series promises searingly honest conversations about the joys and struggles of spinning records.
This month Gilles is joined by world-renowned DJ Cassy. They discuss her upbringing in the Austrian countryside and how she wound up in Berlin in the creative heyday of the early 2000s. From the tough German techno scene to playing with your heroes and being a young mother in a very macho environment, Cassy opens up about how she built her career. For the show Cassy has recorded her DJ set at Jaeger Oslo in February 2018.
