INTRODUCING Fatima [NEW MUSIC]

Fans of future-funk band Sa-Ra Creative Partners already know Fatima’s tangy vocals from “Little Girl” (off group member Shafiq Husayn’s 2009 solo project.) Since then, the East London-based Afro-Swedish singer has released two EPs and several dance 12-inches to global underground critical acclaim on indie label Eglo Records. Her debut album, Yellow Memories, dropped just last month.

The Stockholm native, née Fatima Bramme Sey, is considered to be a leading light in the UK broken beat/nu jazz movement, bridging contemporary R&B with a dope, innovative sound that blends jazz, soul and funk with hyperdub and house rhythms. She’s cited both Brandy and Parliament-Funkadelic as deeply influential to her music—and the spine-tingling, light-bending vocal runs on her latest song, “La Neta,” hint at those influences.

INTRODUCING THE HONORABLE SOUTH [NEW MUSIC]

Shot in New York City, the “La Neta” video shows the fresh-faced singer crooning around town: chilling in a local Laundromat; lamping with fuzzy earmuffs under a light snowfall; singing directly into the camera, emotionally nude, declaring her truth for the world to hear. Believe us when we say, this deeply soulful star-on-the-rise is well worth a listen. Fatima is the truth and nothing but.—Sun Singleton

Keep up with Fatima on Facebook and her website, and follow her on Twitter @queenfatima. (Taste-making DJs can pick up Fatima’s new one on vinyl as well.)
