Stream Fatima Yamaha’s debut album, Imaginary Lines
Fatima Yamaha’s story is an odd one.
Not quite the “girl between two worlds” that the artist’s bio makes out (call the cops, it’s actually a Dutchman named Bas!), Fatima has been releasing music for 15 years under a variety of aliases. 2004’s ‘What’s a Girl To Do?’, however, is Fatima’s big moment: it’s been a cult classic, revered by artists like Hud Mo and Jackmaster, for years, and this year became one of the biggest tracks of the festival circuit due to a crafty reissue by Dekmantel.
Fatima’s debut album Imaginary Lines (out tomorrow on Magnetron Music) very much inhabits the same world as ‘What’s a Girl to Do?’: every track smoulders rather than erupts, with Moog-y basslines and keys to die for. We’re streaming it below; buy it here.
Yamaha will launch the album on November 27, at a London show presented by Trouble Vision and Tief. Unfortunately for latecomers, tickets for the show have already sold out.
