So, Ello is back with a vengeance and we've got an amazing new tape to discuss. I know I say "this is something special" a lot, but this surely qualifies as something really special as the Eglo label had never put out a tape before.
So, Eglo is quite the interesting label, I originally thought it was just run by Floating Points (an amazing young jazzy producer) but I've bumped into some reviews that made it clear Alexander Nut is co-owner as well.
Now, Nut is one of the premier djs for the wonky hip hop / weird beats scene, sorta like a more uptempo Giles Peterson (and about as influential within the broken beats community) and Eglo, having two of UK's top tastemakers for everything hip hop / jazz / house, is an amazing platform for some fine ass beats.
Having said that, Fatima might just be Eglo's finest product to date. This is her sophomore LP and her debut was in itself a high point for the label, it's a testament to her talent that this new tape is as good as if not better. If you're anything into R&B's newest hybrids, then you're in for a ride as Fatima not only has an amazing voice, but she also has a keen eye for beatmakers and composition (she's the cowriter for all of the tracks).
