Taken from a new 12″ set for release next month.
Floating Points is back with ‘Les Alpx’, his first new track in two years. The track sees producer Sam Shepherd returning to a more dancefloor-focused sound after recent excursions into post-rock, ambient and jazz.
“I started going back to my early records and all the sounds I loved playing at clubs like Fabric and Plastic People”, says Shepherd of the new track. “I wanted to capture the immediacy of that music and the feeling that I got when I was on the dancefloor, of being immersed in a track that pulls you along instantly.”
‘LesAlpx’ will be accompanied with another new track, ‘Coorabell’, on a 12″ set for release via Ninja Tune on July 12. Shepherd will also tour Europe this summer, see below for a full list of dates.
