Cause & Affect
Cause & Affect have continued to evolve year on year and gain global recognition by melting tech house with garage and bassline business with plenty of swing. Having released music on worldwide tastemaker labels like Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird, Diplo’s Mad Decent, AC Slater’s Night Bass imprint and London bastion Rinse, no one can deny the affect they have had on driving underground house music.
2015 saw C&A continue to tour the globe with highlights including headlining Londons iconic Fabric nightclub, returning to Canada’s legendary Shambala festival, tearing up Outlook festival in Croatia and return to Australia and NZ for another sell out tour.
One the remix front they have been busy as well, being in high demand by major labels and indies alike to rework records into club destroyers. 2015 alone saw C&A drop remixes on key tastemaker labels Dim Mak and OWSLA as well as majors like Island, Warners and Columbia to critical acclaim.
2016 has already seen them drop collaborations with Taiki Nulight, Lo’99 and the Stanton Warriors. Tour wise they are set to have another huge year in Europe as well as returning to Australia again as well as embarking on their debut US tour. At radio they continue to receive consistent support from the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Mistajam and DJ Target at BBC Radio1
As always, they continue to confound expectation and mix together exciting elements from a range of musical movements: where there is Cause, there is always Affect.
