Cassius Slay is Cornelius Jackson (aka CJ Townsend) and Keith Swet from Hot Mess. They make some serious remixes, whether adding vigorous horn blasts to Freaky Franz or chopping up Lil Wayne. Their song "Based" is good enough to make me tolerate dubstep for a few more weeks. Their first EP is coming out later this year on "a record label," Townsend teased today. This girl will sing on it.

Find them on Facebook to hear their mad manipulations, and on June 2 head to Long Street District, 40 E. Long St., to catch their first show. Another famous DJ duo, Nadastrom, will headline.
