DJ Cassidy has premiered a new track off his highly anticipated debut album, Paradise Royale, entitled “Make The World Go Round,” exclusively on TheFader.com. The song features vocals from modern-day icon R. Kelly and live instrumentation from legendary musicians Wah Wah Watson (Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe”), Ira Siegel (Evelyn “Champagne” King’s “I’m In Love”), Marcus Miller (Luther Vandross’ “Never Too Much”), Ndugu Chancler (Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”), and Jerry Hey (Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall).

To evoke what he calls the “golden era of dance music” on Paradise Royale, Cassidy reunited twenty-two of the most legendary musicians of the late 1970s and early 1980s for the first time in over thirty years to capture the sound of their prolific era using no covers, no samples, and no interpolations. Cassidy then recruited thirteen of the most revered and diverse recording artists from his own era to write and record original songs. The astounding list of artists includes Robin Thicke, Jessie J, R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, Passion Pit, CeeLo Green, John Legend, Estelle, Chromeo, Ne-Yo, Kelly Rowland, Melanie Fiona, and Usher. The iconic list of musicians includes Philip Bailey, Verdine White, and Larry Dunn of Earth, Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang, John “JR” Robinson and Bobby Watson of Rufus, Patrice Rushen, Ray Parker Jr, Nile Rodgers of Chic, and many more. The result is an epic opus of celebration whose inescapable rhythm and explosive spirit moves everybody within its reach.
“Producing this album, I set out on a mission to bring the greatest and most universal dance music of all time back to the airwaves, back to nightlife, back to the dance floor,” says Cassidy. Paradise Royale is set for release in June 2014 on Columbia Records.
