UK Tings – Yasmin ft Shy FX & Ms Dynamite – Light Up The World
by Winston "Stone" Ford
The UK is bringing the 90s back with a vengeance.
And I for one, support this.
First it was 2-step, then house, and now the drum and bass influences are coming back with a fierceness. Take Yasmin, who’s career got a start by getting spotted by Pharrell at a DJ gig. She has since collaborated with Labrinth (Tinie Tempah), Jamie XX, and Shy FX (Dizzee Rascal) for starters. Time will tell if she will be a household name, but this track “Light Up The World,” is a good start. The drum and bass elements (with hints of dub) may not work on US dance floors, but I see this being a floor filler in the UK.
And big up to Ms. Dynamite for making an appearance. It’s like she is giving her blessing to the new generation of UK talent. Check it. (via the homie Tarik)
