Fatima is a star of Eglo Records, the London label run by Alex Nut and Sam Shepherd, AKA Floating Points. Her voice has helped define Eglo's approach to electronic music, which prizes songwriting and musicianship over club functionality. She's worked with dance producers like Funkineven, Dam Funk, Scratcha DVA and Floating Points in recent years, but her style has remained rooted in modern soul and R&B. Music from her forthcoming debut album—including the excellent Family / La Neta—has crept out over the last few months, and this stunning performance of "Gave Me My Name," which features Jonathan Geyevu on keys, is further proof that she could be one of 2014's standout artists.
