Fresh Sounds: Daniel Casimir – Safe, Pt 1

Daniel Casimir presents Safe (Part 1), the first single from his upcoming album planned for April 2021.


The first single Safe (Part 1), is inspired by Derek Owusu's book of the same title which outlines the experience of being black in Britain. Daniel will be releasing his biggest project to date, Boxed In, due out later this year on the Jazz Re:Freshed label. The premise of Daniel Casimir's forthcoming album is both a celebration of Black British Culture and a critique of the genres, labels and stereotypes which have traditionally been placed upon black musicians. The music takes a step outside of prescribed ideas.

Combining classical orchestral instruments with a jazz quintet and a mild sprinkling of live drum and bass, the single resembles a futuristic James Bond score. The stellar line-up of contemporary jazz greats on the single includes Moses Boyd on drums, Nubya Garcia on tenor sax, Al MacSween on piano and James Copus on trumpet.  




Listen to Daniel Casimir new single Safe (Part 1), taken from his forthcoming album:

Award-winning bassist and composer Daniel Casimir has become a regular fixture within the UK jazz scene, providing his heavy-weight upright sound for the likes of Jean Toussaint, Ashley Henry, Camilla George, Blue Lab Beats, Binker Golding and Nubya Garcia to name a few. The album will be released later this year and features 16 musicians, a 50/50 split between female and male musicians.
