Fatima Yamaha’s now classic single ‘What’s A Girl To Do’ taken from the EP ‘A Girl Between Two Worlds’ saw the light of day in 2004 through a joint release by Dublin’s D1Recording and Magnetron Music, but it wasn’t until 10 years later that a re-release made the song truly explode.
For many years, Fatima Yamaha was shrouded in mystery, known only to be a project led by “a young lady born to a Japanese father and a Turkish mother”. By now we all know Bas Bron is Fatima Yamaha. The Dutch producer has many guises, but Fatima Yamaha is his most enigmatic.
The album ‘Imaginary Lines’ on Magnetron Music was released in 2015 and followed the success of ‘What’s A Girl To Do’ with the fabulous single ‘Love Invaders’. Later followed by another banging club anthem ‘Araya’ on Dekmantel Records.
His live shows unfailingly live up to the highest expectations, offering refined house and techno complimented by virtuoso synths. But after years of selling out tours and headlining the most prestigious festivals all over the world, Bas took a year off touring to focus on new material and other ventures.
He directed, produced and made the soundtrack of the short film ‘Heian’ and recorded lots of other tracks, for many different projects.
In the late fall of 2020, when the world was still in turmoil and Bas hadn’t performed for over two years, he released the third Fatima Yamaha album; Spontaneous Order. The first single ‘Day We Met’ is a vocal earworm that will creep up and will never let go. Bas shows his versatility on the album, effortlessly moving form harsh dancefloor tracks to spacious ambient drones and funky electronic pop tracks.
