This morning’s FACT mix takes the form of a very special session from King Midas Sound, the trio of Kevin ‘The Bug’ Martin, Roger Robinson and Hitomi.

All live edited, with special effects and additional vocals and commentary from the London trio, KMS’s FACT mix reads like a list of influences on their twilight Lovers Rock sound, featuring sweet reggae in Tanya Stephens and Gregory Isaacs, dusty shoegaze in My Bloody Valentine and A.R. Kane and modern favourites Burial and Little Dragon, plus tracks from Sade, Larry Heard and Scritti Politti, and material from King Midas’ forthcoming debut album, Waiting For You on Hyperdub.

We’re blown away by it, and pretty much play it every other morning in our office. Not only is it a great listen, it provides a genuine insight into the conception of Waiting For You – one of the year’s most intriguing albums – which is due to drop towards the end of this month
