“Frankie and I were delighted to work on ‘Calling All Hearts,'” says Knuckles’ production partner and close friend, Eric Kupper. “Everything we love about music and true artistry is embodied in this song. DJ Cassidy’s unique vision in putting together such amazing talents, that may have never otherwise crossed paths, is a milestone in the history of dance music.”
To evoke what he calls the “golden era of dance music” on his debut album, 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, no interpolations, and no machines. 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. 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 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.
