FACT mix 297 is an ominous session of clouded-over pop by Blue Daisy.

Hailing from North London, Blue Daisy hasn’t released much – until this year’s debut album, The Sunday Gift, he’d put his name to four singles and one split, all on Black Acre – but he’s made it count, quietly honing a smoky form of pop music that owes as much to back room ’90s icons like Portishead, Tricky and, going further back, the Cocteau Twins as it does the structural freedom of Flying Lotus and Samiyam’s twisted hip-hop.

The Sunday Gift is, frankly, the best thing Blue Daisy’s done by miles. A mostly collaborative project, it finds him assembling a small team of trusted vocalists and neatly sidestepping the beat scene or dubstep associations that some cast on him.

His FACT mix, sub-titled ‘Soundtrack of the Night Sky’, doesn’t have a tracklist, but it’s in the same vein as the album: downcast pop, haunted hip-hop and tons of reverb. It’s great, basically.
