On an early morning of the late 90’s in a dark warehouse, Cassandria Daiva was born from the illegitimate union of house grooves and techno riffs. Many years later, she embarked on a quest to preserve her bastard family heritage, now in peril due to the rise of the EDM empire and the commoditization of music. Equipped only with family relics of old – SL-1200’s turntables, a rotary mixer and a decrepit analog tube compressor – she battles against mainstream currents and the armies of General Mediocrity to preserve the lost art of DJing and the genuine sound of the underground.
On that Journey, she’s established herself as a serious, dedicated underground artist. Cassandria is also a prolific music producer and remixer. With her experience behind the decks, this progression came naturally as she gave birth to many releases and exciting remixes on various imprints worldwide. In 2012 she set her home-base in Dominican Republic, representing the international world-renowned brand DJ Mag on the island and throughout the Caribbean.
In 2014, back in her hometown Montreal, she launched her own vinyl imprint “Vibeline” with the aim to create a dynamic tangible platform for established and emerging artists and went on to extend collaboration with Montreal-grown music collective The Ants.
Taking input from her coach and mentor, old timer and industry veteran Mike Monday, Cassandria continued to work on her music and career development before relocating to the Caribbean once again. This time she set foot on Utila, a lush and eclectic party island off the coast of Honduras and home to one of the largest electronic music festival in Central America: Sunjam.
Always keen on hatching evil plans for world domination against the mainstream EDM empire, Cassandria founded Utila Sound Society: a label, artist management and event promotion company. Today, Utila Sound Society has grown into a major player in the electronic music scene of the island with highly acclaimed monthly events where sound quality and good vibes are put forward for the benefit of tourists and locals.
