I'd never heard of DJ Cassidy until a week ago, but as he was the official DJ at the MTV VMAs and his debut album is rumoured to feature a duet between Robin Thicke and Jessie J, I realised I should probably get the lowdown. He seems to be very well-connected as previous gigs include Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé's weddings and Barack Obama's inauguration! His album won't be released until early 2014, so we can expect a few singles before then. He says it will feature classic '70s and '80s artists alongside current stars. If his recent bookings are anything to go by, we can expect several big names.
