Blue Daisy (GB)
Blue Daisy is increasingly widely-tipped rapper and producer Kwesi Darko. The North Londoner’s quality over quantity approach and ambition to make timeless music has resulted in a slow stream of high-caliber releases and comparisons to Tyler, Burial and the West Country’s holy trinity of Tricky, Massive Attack and Portishead. His first ever single was awarded Pitchfork’s coveted ‘Best New Track’ status, and debut album, The Sunday Gift, for Bristol-based label Black Acre, was warmly received. In 2013 Blue Daisy unleashed the defiantly NSFW Fuck A Rap Song and in early 2014 The Psychotic Love EP followed. Recently Blue Daisy has toured with Tricky and contributed to his new album. Expect fresh solo material very soon.
