You all know who Yasmin is now, right? Well she popped into Maida Vale the other day and recorded a four track session for Mistajam and the 1Xtra team. She performed the debut single, On My Own. Her own version of Runaway, which (for me) is better than both Alicia’s ‘Empire State Of Mind’ and Rihanna’s ‘Love The Way Lie’. A mash up of Willow Smith’s ‘Whip Your Hair’ and Aaliyah’s ‘Back & Forth’ and an exclusive performance of ‘Finish Line’, which is produced by the ever brilliant Labrinth. I was fortunate enough to hear the Labrinth track last month and was blown away by it then. Seems like everything is coming together now and it’s been a pleasure being able to see her grow over the past year. Below you can hear Runaway & Finish Line, and also download all four performances. Onwards & upwards.
P.S. DJ Cable’s scratching is something else.
