Fatima - Follow You (Eglo, 2011)

Finalement, sorti de Massive Attack, Portishead et un ou deux autres noms, le trip-hop n'a jamais vraiment été mon truc. Trop cool, trop sirupeux, trop suave ou trop fabriqué, allez savoir. Peut-être que je n'aime pas cette façon synthétique d'imiter une attitude ''cool'' supposée que des jazzmen créent en live avec bien plus de souffle. Et pourtant, en 2011, le genre bouge encore, pas complètement vampirisé par le dubstep! Et ce maxi entre trip-hop, future jazz et pointes de deep house me fait fondre complètement. Pour les anciens auditeurs de Lenoir j'ajoute un indice : c'est la musique idéale d'un programme cool du vendredi, juste avant les caresses et les bises à l'oeil. A bon entendeur.

Note : Lyrics by Fatima Bramme Sey.
Produced by Sam Shepherd.
Exquisite offerings from Eglo's blessed soul vocalist, Fatima Bramme Sey, atop the creamiest beats from equally talented producer/label boss, Floating Points. If you've dipped into the warm waters of modern Soul in the last few years it's highly likely you're familiar with Fatima's output already, from her appearances on DVA's 'Just Vybe (Soule:Power Mix)' to Shafiq Husayn's 'Lil Girl' or a slew of Eglo releases. Make no mistake, though; this is the one you need! The A-side is a luxurious showcase in three parts: from the bass-suspended red-carpet introduction of 'Cinnamon', through the soul-controlling R&B of 'Mind' and the compellingly classic-sounding 'Innervision'. However, we reckon it's likely the flipside will be hailed as the masterpiece of this record, and both her and Floating Points' calling card for time to come. On 'Red Light' her immaculately rendered tones rise from filigree Rhodes keys to be joined by tenderly gripping shuffle beats Theo P would be proud of, before unfurling into one of the most luxurious Deep House tracks you're likely to hear this year, if not the next five. The production throughout will potentially leave you breathless. (Boomkat)
