LONDON Spiritland Royal Festival Hall
In an age increasingly dominated by faceless machine-created sounds, DJ-Producer Rebecca Vasmant is bringing a fresh new twist to dance music with her love of jazz, the original form of unbridled spiritual sonic expression. While promoting her own parties in Glasgow, starting her jazz record label Shiehallion and touring the world for Ministry Of Sound, her whirlwind schedule has recently fitted in sessions with eight-strong Ghanaian outfit Kakatsitsi, which will manifest as a live fusion show mixing traditional African rhythms with modern dance ingredients; two strains of dancefloor-friendly catharsis joining together in a vibrant new mutant. Rebecca has already made a name in Glasgow with her Made In Glasgow and Know The Way parties, running a popular record fair with the venerable Sub Club and a monthly spot on BBC Radio Scotland playing contemporary jazz records in an attempt to bridge the gap between this much abused but crucial genre and the electronic scene. A huge jazz fan, she also airs this facet of her irrepressible musical passion at key events like the Glasgow Jazz Festival and the Baltic Soul Weekender.
