I’m sure when Sebastian Furrer and Alexander Bjorklund became the Swedish duo we now know as Cazzette, no one expected legend Ash Pournouri, Avicii’s incredible manager, would take them under his wing as his new baby.
Starting out with some amazing remixes picked up by artists such as Swedish House Mafia and Avicii, we knew these men would make a name for themselves fast in a highly demanding industry. With their new album “Eject Pt 1”, being released, we knew they’d be the guys to keep an eye on.
Released on November 13th, something was done with this album like never before. A unique deal between Spotify and At Night Management will be in charge of releasing all of the music off the album together.
This will give Cazzette a chance to expand their fan base and connect with the fans on a different level, like no artist has before. This will give new artists and up and comers a new way to display and share their musical master pieces and of course Cazzette will be leading the way in this ground breaking idea.
With all this hype Elite Daily got the chance to ask them a few questions about what’s to come and where they’re going!
Tell me a bit about how you guys got started DJing?
Well, we started of as producers but realized very fast that we needed to get into DJing in order to get the music out there. Touring is a great way to meet new fans and without the live performance part of our genre our music wouldn’t make the same impact.
I’m really enjoying your new album. What was your vision when you were composing the music?
Thank you! We just wanted to do an album we thought were standing out from everything else in our genre. If you listen to almost any album out there, every track sounds similar to the other. Our vision with the album was to not make that kind of album! It’s fun to vary and play around with sounds and the style of each and every track!
Now your album marks the first time an artist has done such an exclusive unprecedented deal with Spotify. How did this deal come to fruition, and how do you anticipate that it will shape your career?
It such a great way to get your music out there. We’ve been using Spotify since day 1 and we just love it. The way you can share tracks, make playlists, the apps, everything! Streaming music is the future and that’s why we wanted to work with them. Hopefully people will love the album as much as we do. In the end, it’s the people who shape our career!
You’ve just released the video for your single “Beam Me Up”. Tell me a bit about the process of shooting the video?
We haven’t been involved that much in the video, that was all Ash and the rest of the At Night team’s work. The only thing we can say is that we love it – and rumors say that the Weapon video is going to be even cooler!
You’ve spent a great deal of time working with Avicii. Would you say he’s had an effect on how you create music or aided in your development in any way?
Avicii has made a huge impact on every single producer in the world in our opinion. His music is very inspiring, the melodies and the atmosphere. He helped us a lot when it comes to touring and practical things of the everyday life in the music business. We are so grateful to be around such great people as Tim.
As the second act stemming from Ash Pournouri and At Night Management, how much of a role do you believe Ash has played–and will play–in your success? In our previous interview with Avicii he attributed much of his success to the forward thinking business mind of Ash.
Ash is the mastermind behind Cazzette. He have all the ideas and plans for us. He is really the third member of Cazzette!
What has been your most fulfilling gig so far?
EDC Las Vegas!
Who are some of the DJs with the greatest influence on your music?
That is a super hard question. We get a lot of inspiration from all the different producers and DJ’s we meet on the road but Kanye West, Justice and Skrillex to name a few!
What can we expect from Cazzette throughout the rest of 2012
