Floating Points
Ratio

Sam Shepherd, or as we know and love him, Floating Points made a bit of a statement with his 2015 debut album, Eleana. He followed that up with Reflections - Mojave Desert, a soundtrack to a short film. With his latest release, Ratio, he is returning to his earlier days when he made dancefloor-ready material. This vinyl version presents the track in a deconstructed form, splitting the 19-minute epic in two parts. 12" on Pluto.

Floating Points
Crush

Recorded during an intense, deliberately restricted five-week window rather than the years it took to make his 2015 debut Elaenia, Sam Shepherd has announced his second Floating Points album Crush. Inspired by his massive 2017 shows supporting The xx, this record is much more immediate than previous work, as demonstrated by lead single ‘LesAlpx’ released earlier this year.

Floating Points
LesAlpx / Coorabell

Brand new double A-sided single from Floating Points, aka British electronica artist Sam Shepherd. Released on the inimitable Ninja Tune label on 12” vinyl, ‘LesAlpx’ and ‘Coorabell’ are the first pieces of new music from Shepherd in the two years since his soundtrack to 2017 short film Reflections - Mojave Desert.

Floating Points
People's Potential / Shark Chase

Limited edition 12” vinyl re-issue of a 2010 AA-side single from English electronic artist Sam Shepherd, a.k.a. Floating Points. ‘People’s Potential’ is reminiscent of prime-time Herbie Hancock but with a contemporary twist, while ‘Shark Chase’ on the flip-side is a slice of house-inflected electro-jazz.

Late Night Tales

Late Night Tales is a popular series of albums where one artist will curate an album’s worth of material suitable for late night listening. This time it’s the turn of neuroscientist Sam Shepard AKA electronic whizz Floating Points. He mixes tracks by Sarah Davachi, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, The Residents and more. It also includes his own version of a Kenny Wheeler track and a spoken word piece by wor Lauren Laverne off the radio, like.  LP and CD on Late Night Tales.

Floating Points
Kuiper

Floating Points presents 2 nice side-long cuts that continue his exciting evolution into expansive full-band electronic jams. Both Kuiper and the B-side track ‘For Marmish Part II’ are compositions with lots of room for change and growth, the band clearly as hypnotised as the listener by the pulsing momentum. 12” on Pluto.

Floating Points
Reflections - Mojave Desert

My my, how the Floating Points project has grown and travelled. These days, Sam Shepherd’s production alias is a full band, who all headed to the Mojave Desert to record the first in a planned series of Reflections records. Field recordings of the environment are blended into surprisingly rockish compositions. The album comes with a DVD containing a short film. On Pluto.

Floating Points
Elaenia

A major statement here from Floating Points. Elaenia is a full-length record that spans everything the producer / composer has done so far. Jazz, Soul, and Brazilian music are just as important to the sound of Elaenia as the electronic dance tracks most know Floating Points for. At times reminiscent of Flying Lotus’ more ornate work, this really is quite a record.

Floating Points
Nuits Sonores / Nectarines

Floating Points takes the deep house genre tag a little too literally on "Nuits Sonores", stretching out to ten minutes of propulsive rhythms and slight melodies that quietly shift their way onto the dance-floor, as if replicating the first fish walking up onto land. This stunning, immense and eventually physically pulverising work sounds influenced by the gasping IDM ambience of Boards of Canada while keeping a firm grasp on its roots in house music. On the flip there's "Nectarines", if you need more.

Maalem Mahmoud Guinia, Floating Points & James Holden
Marhaba

Lovely stuff here from the one-off group of James Holden, Floating Points, and Moroccan Gnawa master Maalem Mahmoud Guinia (plus his band). Recorded next to a hotel pool, the session sounds remarkably open, no party seeking to dominate but only to integrate their styles. Four tracks, vinyl released by Eglo.

Floating Points
Sparkling Controversy

Chill but deep house dude Floating Points has dropped an unexpected single-sided 12" on our heads with 'Sparkling Controversy', which is coming courtesy of Eglo Records. The self-titled track takes "Arp 3", an old Floating Points tune that appeared on the 'Shadows' EP, as its cue, and dubs it up. It makes for a very chill excursion indeed, with pleasant keys and a rock-steady beat.
