Live : Glasgow Jazz Experiment
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. Rebecca is a passionate record collector and her knowledge exceeds her time as a "digger".
While promoting her own parties and record fair in Glasgow, starting her record label Schiehallion and touring the world over the past years, her whirlwind schedule has fitted in sessions with eight-strong Ghanaian outfit Kakatsitsi, 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. As well as working on her 'Glasgow Jazz Experiment which features world class musicians from The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, her talents are not only in spinning records, but in composing and live shows also.
Rebecca has already made a name in Glasgow with her residency at Sub Club, 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 records in an attempt to bridge the gap between much abused but crucial genres and the electronic scene. She also airs this facet of her irrepressible musical passion at key events like the Glasgow Jazz Festival, Kasheme Zurich, Casper Montenegro and the Baltic Soul Weekender, Waunderlust and Le Melletron Paris, as well as recent high profile gigs curated by Mixmag, like TRNSMT Festival and many others.
Renowned UK clubs which have been treated to Rebecca’s sublime house and techno sets include a two year residency at Edinburgh’s Cabaret Voltaire, the Sub Club and The Arches in Glasgow, Aberdeen’s Snafu, Dundee’s Reading Room, We Love... at Manchester’s Sankey’s, Leeds’ Back To Basics and London niteries including MOS and East Village. She has also played festivals including Rockness, Kelburn, T in The Park and Wickerman, plus Ibiza spots such as Space, Savannah and Zoo Project.
Rebecca’s activities have taken her to play in 22 countries, including premiere spots in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Estonia, India, Africa, Nicaragua, Bosnia, Latvia, Dubai, Austria, Turkey, Serbia, Algeria and Bulgaria.
This year, she has released a remix of Norwegian duo Perfume with Hot Gem recordings, and in September is set to release an EP on Made In Glasgow Recordings which is a collaborative effort with Perseus Traxx. The end of the year will also see a release of her solo EP of disco and jazz tinged house.
