Fatima is growing organically and this is a beautiful thing. That someone so humble and honest within our community is being allowed to develop as an artist and make a lot of her own decisions is a credit to Eglo Records Ethos. Much love to S&S Shane Connolly on his direction and the solid production of Floating Points.

This is by and large the best thing I have ever seen on TV. A few weeks ago I thought of a project involving Hasidic Jews and the secrecy that seems to surround them. At our studio we’re surrounded by these individuals but I have never even spoken to or approached one for fear of the unknown. Stuff like that baffles me because I’m extremely inquisitive. I spoke to a few people about the project and they thought it was rather controversial as it seems like I would be poking fun at them. I fought my corner to try and say I’m sure they are very similar to us but we have no idea until we challenge the dialogue. So this angel I know was one of the few people to say she liked my idea and a week later we’re talking and she says there is a documentary on BBC iplayer about Hasidic Jews and that my idea would definitely work, even more so once I see this. This got me very intrigued. So I light one up and sit back waiting for a dep and insightful look into their world. What I see not only makes me like these secretive people more it also validated the idea behind my project. Turns out we’re all not so different after all, once we lose the uniform and stereotypes. THIS IS A MUST WATCH!!!
