Yasmin lights up the world

This has been floating around for a couple of weeks now, but it's absolutely worth flagging up. Yasmin (DJ, model, minor league chart star) has teamed up with Shy FX (the godfather of drum'n'bass) to concoct a pounding, reggae-tinged club smash. You can almost guarantee it ripped open a few subwoofers at the Notting Hill Carnival this week, thanks to a rumbling, subterrestrial bassline and liberal sprinklings of the legendary Amen Break.

I particularly love Yasmin's understated vocals. Most singers would attack a lyric like "I just want to light up the world" with the force of Hurricane Irene. Yasmin takes the opposite approach, her sweet delivery soaring above the clattering percussion like a summer breeze.

Highly recommended.
