SME’s most recent interviewee, Yasmin has released the video to her new single Finish Line; the follow-up to her Top 40 debut single On My Own.

SME RELOAD: [SME MEETS] Yasmin *Exclusive Interview*


Aged just 21, Yasmin Shahmir posseses incredible talent and is one of Britain’s most promising female artists.

Yasmin was born in Manchester and raised in Glasgow, but it was the city of London which would prove to be the turning point in her life and provide her with the exposure she sought.

Having moved to London at the age of 19 in order to pursue her DJing career, she soon received the recognition she deserved; going on to DJ for the likes of N*E*R*D, Taio Cruz and Eve.

Off the back of her success in DJing, Yasmin decided to pursue a career in singing, and went on to sign a record deal with Levels Entertainment (part of Ministry of Sound). She has since supported Example on his UK tour, featured on the song ‘Runaway’ with East London’s finest MC; Devlin and most recently went on to release her debut single ‘On My Own’ which charted at #39; an impressive achievement for a debut record. Yasmin is also currently working on her debut album with the likes of Jamie XX, Labrinth and Shy FX.

Having seen her tear of the roof dropping endless Hip-Hop bangers during her DJ set at Rock The Belles, we were eager to talk Yasmin and find out if in fact there is anything that this girl can’t do?
Our wish was granted and here’s what we asked the beautiful singer/DJ/model/superwoman. The last one on that list isn’t entirely true; at least as far as we know!

[REVIEW] Rock The Belles @ East Village with Yasmin and DJ Steffie 28/01/11 by wearesme

On Friday night (28/01/11) SME made our way to our second home East Village (home to our blog parties) for the launch of a cool new night called Rock The Belles. Rock the Belles aims to bring together the hottest female DJs, bands, designers and creatives for a genre-defying monthly celebration of the girls who are making their mark on the music industry.

On the night, 2 of those females making movements in the music industry were the incredible singer Yasmin, who was launching her debut single ‘On My Own’ on the night and SME’s very own Steffie, who was taking part in the all female DJ battle.

The night started off on the best note possible; bumping into A-Trak before his set at XOYO on our way to East Village.

We got to the venue and soon after it was ramo in the main room, with the queue outside making its way down Great Eastern Street. You had to feel for the guys waiting outside in subzero temperatures, but this reflected how big a night was on the cards.

The Work It Girls warmed everyone up with some old school RnB gems early on in the night. then later on in the evening, the vibe was turned up a notch. Steffie was spinning yet another big set upstairs, going head to head with the other 2 girls and Yasmin was tearing it up with a crazy cool Hip-Hop downstairs, which SME were definitely not expecting. The room erupted as she dropped banger after BANGER.
Good looking, the voice of an angel and a master on the decks…is there anything this girl can’t do!?

Check out some snaps from the evening below. And don’t miss Rock The Belles round 2 featuring Little Boots. Same venue on 25/02/11 and every last Friday of the month onwards.

And you can download Yasmin’s debut single/EP from iTunes HERE.
