90 Degrees

A 1 track soul single (4m 15s) — released March 16th 2018 on First Word Records

First Word Records is very pleased to welcome Yazmin Lacey to the label, with this her first offering, '90 Degrees'.

2017 was an amazing year for Nottingham-based singer, Yazmin; the release of her debut EP, 'Black Moon', was championed by people such as Gilles Peterson, gal-dem, Jamie Cullum and Jamz Supernova (BBC 1Xtra), which also included a live Maida Vale session with Jordan Rakei, Moses Boyd, Oscar Jerome, Children of Zeus and more. The Brownswood 'Future Bubblers' graduate has also supported the likes of Ezra Collective and Fatima in recent times.

Yazmin kicked off 2018 with a fine start too, by performing at the Worldwide Awards with Skinny Pelembe, and she returns to the road in Spring for a run of dates across the UK, as well as several festival appearances across Europe locked in, and a headline show at Rich Mix in London on April 5th.

This first new musical offering for 2018 exemplifies just why Yazmin has caught the ear of international DJs and tastemakers, with her candid approach to songwriting, and a unique fusion of Neo-Soul and contemporary Jazz.

In Yazmin's words: "'90 Degrees' is about that time of the day / night when there's a shift in pace and energy. When you decide to lock off from the 'outside' world and create your own atmosphere, take some time to give thanks for what's breathing love into your life and smoke off the fuckeries. Everyone needs a little routine for self preservation."

'90 Degrees' is released digitally worldwide on Friday March 16th.
