FatimaFatima is a nomadic child of the cosmos, drawing upon life inspiration and energy in everything from LA Freeways, London basements and The Sea through to Earth Wind And Fire and the sky above. Eglo Records are proud to present her highly anticipated debut album ‘Yellow Memories’. Featuring production work from the likes of Floating Points, Theo Parrish, Oh No, Scoop DeVille, Computer Jay, Knxwledge and more – the velvet toned Swede has truly crafted something special.

Offering a modern take on classic Soul and RnB, the album strikes a beautiful balance of cutting edge, contemporary production, soulful expression, melancholic introspection and vibrant, candy coated melody. An accomplished singer/songwriter with a stunning range, her prowess and versatility are a force not to be reckoned with. As powerful and mesmerising on stage as she is in the studio, Fatima possesses a talent heard all to rarely in todays musical climate.

Two singles have so far been released from the album, including the Flako produced double A-Side ‘Family’ and ‘La Neta’. Upfront tracks from the album are already in heavy rotation amongst musical luminaries such as BBC Radio 1’s Benji B, 6Music’s Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs as well as wide spread support from contemporary broadcast institutions like Rinse FM and NTS. Resident Advisor recently featured Fatima on their front page having recorded a deeply emotive live performance of the album track ‘Gave Me My Name’.

Born of Swedish and Senegalese parentage, Fatima moved to London in her early twenties. It was here that she met Eglo Records label bosses Alex Nut and Floating Points. After several chance encounters a relationship blossomed leading to the creation of several now classic releases including ‘Mind’, ‘Redlight’ and ‘Innervision’ as well as her Award winning performances fronting the Floating Points Ensemble. Other collaborations include Dam Funk, Shafiq Husayn (SA-RA) and Scratcha DVA on Hyperdub. Currently residing in New York Fatima will be returning to the UK/EU mid April for a string of live dates and launch parties through out May accompanied by the Eglo Live Band. Her live shows are not to be missed!
