CAZZETTE Releases Anticipated Debut Album "Eject" with Popular Streaming Service (11/12/13)

Cazzette is about to blow up, or at least that’s what one of the world’s largest streaming services claims.  When their debut album Eject drops tomorrow, it will be marketed in full force by Spotify to millions of users worldwide.  The major marketing push is really more of an experiment for the company to discover whether or not they can help break new artists.  It just so happens that their first “experiment” is being done with one of the most hyped EDM artists of the year.  Cazzette is a Swedish DJ duo consisting of 23-year-old Alexander Björklund and 19-year old Sebastian Furrer.  They just wrapped up a 17-date September tour in the US and have received support from David Guetta, Tiësto, Swedish House Mafia, Avicii, and Martin Solveig to name a few.  The underground success for the duo began a year ago when Cazzette released their first track, a remix for Avicii entitled “Sweet Dreams (CAZZETTE meet AT NIGHT Mix), which charted at the Top20 on Beatport Top100 General Charts for months.  Soon after, their bootleg of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” landed the number one spot on HYPE MACHINE Most Popular after being uploaded on their Soundcloud page.

In a recent interview, Diplo said “I know one thing — the major labels, the A&Rs, are very frightened now.” This info comes as no surprise since executives are the first to cry injustice, music and otherwise. Rather than create an imaginary war or take on the ever so popular victim role, music executives should think, “What can EDM do for me?”.

The singer’s forthcoming debut single “Temptation” clearly demonstrates his rock edge while also incorporating a pop-savvy, ready-radio melody and his emotive delivery that will have a mass appeal.” ArjanWrites

Artists House Music

Check out this site for interviews with the top music industry professionals, musicians, administrators, and more. Great way to learn about the industry in the present and future. I'm doing producer work for this website this summer by interviewing a classical music symphony and its administration. Great learning tool.
