Few vocalists can claim to have worked with such a diverse array of musicians, a true testament of her capabilities, talent and versatilely, Fatima’s list of collaborators spans the likes of Floatings Points (inc the Ensemble), Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), Dam Funk, Scratcha DVA, Dorian Concept, Funkineven, Ras G, VeebeO and Teebs to name but a few. Born in Stockholm, Sweden but currently residing East London, Fatima 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.
Fatima | La Neta
In december 2013, Eglo Record’s first lady linked with Flako for “Family/ La Neta”, a crafty follow-up to her crucial appearances collected on ‘Eglo Records Vol.1’. Rather than the rudeness of her Funkineven-produced ‘Phone Line EP’, or the sophisticated bumps of Computer Jay, Oh No and Floating Points on the ‘Circle EP’, the elastic, hardly quantised grooves of Flako’s three productions here (plus one instrumental) really give Fatima a chance to stretch her vocal abilities against their sheer, future-facing jazz-funk aesthetics. On ‘La Neta’, she steps to the Chilean producer’s time signature-hopping groove with keenest swagger, breathlessly flitting from double-timed rap to graceful croon and hushed downbeat, whilst ‘Family’ props her on a cool, well-tucked shuffle, and the nimble chicanery of ‘Black Dough’ really gives her something to vibe off.
This event is highly recommended by Digital in Berlin! We are giving away 2 x 2 tickets. Just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Fatima” as the subject.
