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 this Nottingham-based singer; 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). Jamz also invited Yazmin to be a part of a live Maida Vale session along with the likes of Jordan Rakei, Moses Boyd, Oscar Jerome and Children of Zeus. The Brownswood 'Future Bubblers' graduate has also supported artists such as 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."


Waiting for 7.03
To come hijack my thoughts from me
When the sun dips 90 Degrees
I roll up my liccle piece
And oh I’ve caught a bit of peace
Physical world is draining me
Come catch some solidarity
This will be my remedy aahhhhh
This will be my remedy aaaahhh a ahhhhh

And now it’s 2.08
I should sleep it’s getting late
So much to do I wanna regulate
This is my time to get straight
Give thanks for the gains
Mellow out remain sane
Come catch some solidarity
This will be my remedy aahhhhhh
This will be my remedy ahhhhh a ahhhhhh

This will be my remedy
Catch a bit of peace

This will be my remedy

I’ll breathe, I’ll breathe before I die
I’ll die after I breathe

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
