Fatima Yamaha

DJ and producer Fatima Yamaha has been shrouded in mystery since the release of the single "What's A Girl To Do" in 2004. This remarkable, melancholic dance track has evolved over the years, finding its way into the record bags of DJs like Hudson Mohawke, Dixon, and Bicep, becoming a timeless dancefloor classic in underground clubs in the Netherlands, England, and Scotland. Who was Fatima Yamaha? According to the legend, she was a young woman from Turkey, born to a family with a Japanese father and a Turkish mother. We now know better: Fatima Yamaha is one of the alter egos of Amsterdam-based producer Bas Bron, primarily recognized in the Netherlands as a member of De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig and for the beats he creates for artists like Donnie. Bas Bron's music stands out unmistakably with its idiosyncratic blend of vintage synthesizers, funky basslines, and hard-hitting beats.

In 2015, eleven years after his initial release, he dropped his debut album, "Imaginary Lines," followed by the EP "Araya" via Dekmantel Records. Both releases catapulted Fatima Yamaha to prominent festival stages at acclaimed events like PITCH, Dekmantel, Glastonbury, and Werchter. In 2020, he unveiled his most recent album, "Spontaneous Order."
