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.

This is a great track; apparently a dubbed-out reworking of an older tune from his 'Shadows' EP.

You know what you are getting with the likes of FP. He builds a truly delicious uplifting vibe here that expands on his airy backroom funky house strides to add chilled jazzy rhodes stylings which really come to life during the breakdown. Generally speaking this is quite an uptempo and groovesome number that would really set the mood in your more discerning bar or club. I really want a cocktail now. I so don't wish to be stuck here sweeping my tired mind for pointless words. I'm in the mood for some sparkling nightlife.

Point deducted, as always, for stupid waste of vinyl. Yes, it's a bloody single-sider.
