In an age increasingly dominated by machine-created sounds, DJ-Producer Rebecca Vasmant is bringing a fresh new twist to dance music with her love of jazz.
While promoting her own parties and record fair in Glasgow and touring over the last five years, her schedule has fitted in a six month tour with eight-strong Ghanaian outfit Kakatsitsi, presenting her radio show on Worldwide Fm showcasing the best in Scottish music, as well as working on her own live project ‘Glasgow Jazz Experiment’ which features world class musicians from The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, her talents are not only in playing records, but in composing and live shows also.
Rebecca has already made a name for herself with her Era Suite residency at Sub Club, running a popular record fair with the venerable venue, a monthly spot on BBC Radio Scotland and Worldwide Fm. A huge jazz fan, she also airs this facet of her irrepressible musical passion at key events like Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival in Switzerland and Sete, Glasgow Jazz Festival, Jazz Cafe London, Kasheme Zurich, La Bellevilloise Paris, Casper Montenegro and the Baltic Soul Weekender. She is also set to host her own stages at many festivals this summer as part of her Era Suite party.
This month Rebecca’s show is dedicated to the intersection of jazz and poetry. Expect deep, sultry textures and spoken word.
