Yazmina infuses her sound with the grit and grime of her London hometown, mixing up tech, house, bass and garage with old-school r&b, hip hop and soul. Having already received support from tastemakers like Amine Edge & DANCE and Kevin McKay, she now makes an expansive debut on Jamie Jones's Hottrax. Download/Steram it here: https://orcd.co/hxt122.
‘This debut EP is a massive milestone for me, it has given me the confidence to experiment with my production and dig deeper into my sound. The three tracks combine classic soul and modern r&b vocal samples with heavy basslines, which for me capture the London music scene I grew up in.’ - Yazmina
Opener 'Baby Ah Ah Ah' brings relentless tech house energy with a filthy yet melodic bassline, whilst an alluring neo-soul vocal swirls up top to bring sensuousness to the heady sonics. Next up is ‘Tears Of A Clown’, another turbocharged house sound powered by a nimble bassline and retro chords that bring colour as a classic Motown vocal sample lights up the groove in irresistible fashion. Closer 'Get On Up' shows a deeper and more stripped-back side to Yazmina's sound, with menacing vocal mutterings and razor-sharp percussion that cuts through the murky pads to round out a standout debut.
Yazmina ‘Give Me Your Love’ EP drops via Hottrax on 1st December 2023.
