Glaswegian musician, producer, DJ and curator Rebecca Vasmant has announced details of her debut album and unveiled a new track.
‘With Love, From Glasgow’ is the first release on her own label Rebecca’s Records, the LP will drop on 4th June.
“I wanted to make music that helped show what exciting things are happening here in Scotland, and let some hugely talented musicians come in and collaborate on a record that captures my own love and passion for deep music,” says Vasmant. The nine-track record gives a crucial insight into the modern day sounds of a city which has already contributed so much to music culture.
Having already impressed us last year with the deeper than deep spiritual jazz of ‘Freefall’, she’s shared the equally sublime ‘Jewels Of Thought’.
Serving as the lead track from the album, ‘Jewels Of Thought’, is dedicated to jazz legend Pharoah Sanders and features Harry Weir (sax), Paix (vocals), Dave Koor (keys/synth) and Graham Costello (drums)
It’s a lovely homage with the uptempo number encompassing layers of lush instrumentation which serve as the perfect backdrop for Paix’s stunning vocals to drift through.
