Ashley Casselle Ashley Casselle London Ashley Casselle makes spacey house, techno and modern disco. As half of UK electronica act Ashtrax he received attention and plaudits from both sides of the Atlantic in the Noughties, creating atmospheric house music & breakbeats in turn helping pave the way for his diverse and musical djing style to find an international arena, leading to dream slots and bookings at some of the world's best clubs and festivals such as Womb in Tokyo and Vinyl in New York, whilst recording for labels such as Junior Boys Own and Deviant Records. He even had his portrait up in the National Gallery as part of a dj coffee table book and entered the ever controversial DJ Mag Top 100 Djs chart. As a solo artist he's now evolved his sounds further and settled upon simply using his own name (or just the surname) to front new recordings and collaborations. Finding the ultimate point where a diverse set of influences can collide in harmony is his primary directive. Perhaps not many producers could argue that Brian Eno, Boards of Canada & The Smiths' richly layered and nuanced melodies could merge sweetly with the classic house of Ron Trent or earthy techno of Carl Craig, yet this is what he strives for in his productions on, most recently, English imprints Murge Recordings and Loose Lips. You can receive his thoughtfully programmed dj mixes as well presented podcasts (archived during more than 10 years of djing from Singapore to Shoreditch, LA to Derry), which are a good representation of his live deck skills where vinyl and digital remain happy bedfellows in a quest for the perfectly smooth mix transitions which make his club sets so addictive. His Casselleshow on North London's new Threads Radio station attracts listeners far and wide, and is being hailed as a more recent and successful addition to his djing performances. The idea of talking whilst mixing on the radio is now another new facet to his ever evolving musical journey and notably diverse career. The Dayrise Enterprise mix series shows a flair for the more soulful and experimental side of his repertoire with a new label launch soon to host the exclusively made tracks and re-edits lovingly assembled for these spaced out dj journeys. A residency in London sees the Dayrise Enterprise mothership land in its own live 10 hour daytime sci-fi club setting to reflect the diverse and lush depths of the new imprint of the same name. An artist album by Casselle will be released in Summer 2020.
