Boomkat Product Review:
Bas Bron fires up his synths for another saunter through 21st century jazz funk on this new Fatima Yamaha 12” for Dekmantel.
Responsible for that misty-eyed sleeper hit of a reissue back in 2015, Bas Bron returns to the Dekmantel fold with a fresh three-track Fatima Yamaha record that finds the Dutch producer chasing former glories.
Up top, the title track unfurls into a slick arrangement of melancholic synth movements and supple drums - sort of like Flo Po covering the Drive OST - whilst the warm electro funker, Piayes Beach Bar And Grill, offers a more playful side to Bron’s risibly-named alter ego.
Face down, Bron channels his best Dexter Wansel for the more laid back moog viber Romantic Bureaucracy - one for the Dekmantel Selectors festival we imagine.
