Hellooo! I'm Yazmine. I'm a 20-year-old singer-songwriter, DJ, and artist, based in New York City. I'm also a student at NYU's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at Tisch School Of The Arts. I've been performing, singing and creating music since the age of 9 years old. Coming from a family with no musical background, I had to guide myself, and that's how my true passion developed- with my sole influence and no one else's.
As a kid, I always had a high amount of energy, I always loved to dance to music at any occasion. When it comes to music, I want to make people feel that adrenaline to move and be excited. I want my music to be YOUR euphoric escape. Growing up in Europe, when I first got introduced to nightclubs pursuing music made even more sense to me. I loved seeing the crowd react to music by chanting, singing, dancing to a song. My music is a mix of house music and dance pop. I love house and techno music. At the same time, I also always longed for more emotions in this genre. I want house music fans, like myself, to feel that emotion and nostalgia you typically get in dance pop songs. I want that pop hook with house music and techno instrumental elements. As an artist, my sound is derived from this need of extra emotion I feel in my favourite and most listened to genre.
My professional background in music started when I, wrote and composed my first single at the age of 15, "Chasin' ", released on December 19th, 2018. The lyrics and music were written by me. The song was co-produced at As A Bird Productions, that I've been with since 2012. At the age of 17, I wrote out a concept and sketches for a music video I wanted to create. My background in performing and acting helped me realize this. Since I've moved to New York in 2021, I quickly started to develop a new sound. I started DJing and have loved integrate that with my music. I am very eager to enter the music industry with determination and authenticity. My new single "Sun (Alectrona)", a collaboration with artist and DJ, Devle, comes out on May 12th 2023.
