One of Brownswood recordings Future Blubbers’ graduates, Yazmin Lacey’s warming delicate vocals first caught my attention with her 2018 EP release titled ‘When The Sun Dips 90 Degrees’. Released through the amazing label, First Word Records who have worked with the likes of Kaidi Tatham, and Children of Zeus.
Lacey’s new single, ‘Not Today Mate’ is a luscious funk fuelled groove, with vibrating synths surrounding her vocals during the hooks. With shades of Erykah Badu and Amy Whinehouse, Yazmin Lacey’s open and honest lyrics are relatable as she opens up a conversation around the unbalance in the dynamics of a relationship.

Nottingham born singer, songwriter; Yazmin Lacey is a talented graduate from Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Future Bubblers cohort. Her delicate, encapsulating voice, and slight raspy soulful tones are reminiscent of Amy Winehouse’s’ vocals, which give her a memorably distinctive voice. She has recently released wonderfully crafted 5-track EP titled; ‘When the Sun Dips’ with First Word Records, which oozes late 90s Neo-Soul and jazz.
‘90 degrees’ is a slow – burning downtempo, ethereal track, with percussion elements combing with drums and quick guitar play creating a chilling immersive opener. Once Yazmin’s gentle poignant vocals grace the track, its so easy to get lost in lucid dreaminess of her voice, which slowly takes you on a journey as the instruments cohesively accompany her voice. ‘Something my heart trusts’ stunningly opens with hard hitting piano chords and drums, which goes on to welcome her gentle vocals smoothly, as she takes center stage and allows her voice to develop it’s range and Badu-esque tones. Additional praise must be given to Yazmin’s band and whoever else has put together the backing for her vocals to flow with. ‘Body needs healing’ perfectly showcases her band’s ability as the instrumentals takeover, whilst Yazmin plays and swirls her voice dreamily along the track.
She performs live at The Jazz Café in Camden town on 25th November click here to buy tickets
