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.

- Nuits Sonores / Nectarines by Floating Points
9/10 Andrew 20th December 2014
The Young master Sam aka Floating Points hits another home run with two more tracks of deep hypnotic dancefloor dynamite. Nuits Sonores clocks in at an epic 10 minutes, perfect for the dj in need of a toilet break. It starts out with a dubby filtered intro that runs for a couple of minutes, before the tracks really kicks. Shifting gears slowly up and up until you find the track has become a bit of a techy banger. Playing with the melody that runs throughout FP really twists this into a proper trip. On the flip there is more of the same, though from this guy its no bad thing. Tougher than his last couple of releases, this is highly recommended and will likely go down a storm at cosmic slop.
