Boomkat Product Review:
Eglo's first lady of soul, Fatima Bramme Sey properly arrives with her fully-fledged debut album, 'Yellow Memories', featuring production by Floating Points, Computer Jay, Flako, and KNX. Active since the late '00s with guest appearances on Geeneus, DVA and Shafiq Husayn productions, the London-based vocalist has become a firm fixture in the Eglo family, contributing to some of the label biggest highlights such as her Floating Points-produced 'Red Light' and her 'Phone Line' dancefloor bomb with Funkineven. In the last few years, however, she's come to be the label's strongest, most unique asset, and 'Yellow Memories' is testament to that fact. In Fatima, the whole crew find a (not so) common element, each catering her a unique beat which ultimately becomes defined by her bright-eyed soul power. Whether it's Floating Points' plush jazz-funk on 'Do Better' or ghostly jazz notes in 'Talk', Computer Jay's P-funk wonk on 'Circle', or the clockwork rhythms and electronics of Scoop Deville's beat for 'Ridin Round (Sky High)', she's the cool, lustrous thread which unites them all, and is no doubt bound for sophisticates' stereos across the world.
