Boomkat Product Review:
Yet another stunning release from Blue Daisy, this time featuring vocals from Anneka and remixes from Permanent Vacation's John Talabot, and Sunken Foal. The two original tracks from Kwesi Darko aka Blue Daisy are as lush and affecting as anything we've heard from him yet. In 'Raindrops' Anneka sounds like she's been summoned to haunt, drifting between rickety drum machines, burred electrobass and Burial-esque atmospheres while a matrix of seasick compression effects enhance her spectral grace. 'Blood Petal Roses' is a grandly symphonic construction, breathing deeply with chest swelling bassline and a strong 4/4 pulse for use on the dreamiest dancefloor. Nu-disco don John Talabot spins 'Raindrops' as a gauzy, mid-tempo cosmic roller and Sunken Foal do their sumptuous pastoral 'tronica thing with 'Blood Petal Roses'. Imagine This Mortal Coil crossed with Flying Lotus and you'll know the feeling.
