Fatima - Soul Glo’ + Mindtravlin’ EP

Meet London-based vocalist, the lovely miss Fatima. You may recognize her fresh sounds from working on many collaborations with folks like Shafiq Husayn, Slum Village and Floating Points.  On March 8, 2010 her first official EP release, Mindtravelin is out on Eglo Records. Four tracks deep with production handled by the likes of Dam Funk (yep!) VeebeeO and Funkineven. BBC Radio host and musical tastemaker, Benji B, premiered the lead track 'Soul Glo' on his 1Xtra show last Sunday.

Fatima | Warm Eyes

The ultimate funkateer, Dam Funk linked with UK-based soul singer Fatima for this lovely throwback-esque jawn, “Warm Eyes”.  Definitely feelin’ the soul glo of this one!  Make sure to catch Fatima on Phantom Lover's latest EP, Mauve.

Fatima | Innervisions


London-based songstress by way of Sweden, Miss Fatima is a shining star.  Her wandering soulfully decadent voice has been featured on several projects over the past couple years.  One of the first we remember was Shafiq Husayn’s “Little Girl" and since then the Eglo recording artist has been breaking down genre specific walls and carving her own niche into all things soulful.  The next EP she has coming out is produced solely by 23-year old Sam Shepard who goes by the name Floating Points.  Known for jazzy, synth-based dubstep, melodic floating sounds Mr. Shepard demonstrates sounds’ capability to transform moods.  Miss Fatima and Sam are sure to create some smashing sounds and as a preview from the forthcoming EP Follow You enjoy the beatless and magical journey of “Innervisions”.

Funkineven & Fatima | Phone Line

LOVE it.
