Song of the Day: Rebecca Vasmant – Broken Biscuits feat. Nadya Albertsson
Tru Thoughts Recordings presents Rebecca Vasmant'snew single Broken Biscuits featuring Nadya Albertsson, from her forthcoming new EP Dance Yourself Free.
Broken Biscuits started life over a decade ago, recorded as part of Rebecca’s Audio Engineering college assessment; it’s nice for me to listen to this track and remember back to that time and how much I dreamed of being at a point of doing something like this. Rebecca muses, releasing a record of the music I have made alongside beloved friends… Such a lovely thought to think about. To make this dream a reality, Rebecca seamlessly merges the worlds of Jazz and Broken Beat with a selection of talented Glasgow-based musicians. Mesmerising vocals from Nadya Albertsson float along with a backdrop of synth and bass grooves from Dave Koor, with the added warmth of collaboration radiating through offerings from Norman Willmore (saxophone), Cameron-Thompson Duncan (trumpet) and Danielle Price (tuba).
Working with a host of talented musicians and channelling her own passion for both genres, the Dance Yourself FreeEP was recorded in one session of a few hours. Dance Yourself Free celebrates the freedom of being in the moment and forgetting everyday stresses and worries; That beautiful moment when every person in the club is united by the music, Rebecca adds. In that moment, we are all the same, we are all happy and we are all free. That’s the Dance Yourself Free moment.
