Biography

Cassidy Durango Milton Willy Podell (born 1981), better known as DJ Cassidy, is a New York DJ. Cassidy is known for his work at celebrity functions, including the 50th birthday party and 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama, and the 2008 wedding of Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
Born in New York's Upper East Side, Cassidy was interested in deejaying from an early age. He asked his parents for two turntables and a mixer for his tenth birthday. He soon began his career, working at teenage parties, school carnivals and talent shows, and in his senior year in high school at nightclubs in New York. In 1999 he studied at George Washington University, then transferred to New York University, graduating in sociology in 2003.
Cassidy's first album, Paradise Royale, released in May 2014 by Columbia Records. The aim of the album is to "bring back the greatest and most universal dance music of all time", a statement which was referred to as one of a series of "sloganeering quotes..., repeated several times during our interview like a message from a sponsor", during an interview with The Independent.
Paradise Royale was four years in the making. In preparation for it, Cassidy created an iTunes playlist of 25 songs recorded between 1978 and 1982, then set about researching how to make his music sound like those songs. He looked into the musicians who had played on them and realized that the producers were using the same musicians to create that particular sound. Those are the musicians he tried to recruit for Paradise Royale.
