Fatima - And Yet It's All LoveEglo
Vocalist Fatima has been serenading us with future soul rhythms since landing in London in 2006. Soon after she connected with Alexander Nut, head of Eglo Records where she's consistently released an array of future soul heaters. Her sophomore release "And Yet It's All Love" follows up the 2014 critically acclaimed "Yellow Memories". That would be a tough act for anyone but Fatima seamlessly pulls it off. "Somebody Else" highlights Fatima's soulful style augmented by the soul infused hip-hop production of JD Reid. Other notable producers include Flako, who adds another dimension with the string laden "Waltz". Purist produced two of the strongest tracks here, the gorgeous "Only" and the piano jazz infused "May I". Fatima has solidified herself as a voice to be reckoned with. No matter what style she's singing it's always a delight. This superb release has something for everyone and shouldn't be missed.
