Sam Shephard, aka Floating Points, is a producer who comes from a wonderfully musical background. His latest release on his and Alexander Nut's record label, Eglo, maintains the quality that we have come to expect. The two track combination shines with the jazz influences that have made Floating Points so widely respected as not only a producer but a DJ also - it is well worth checking this out.
'Faruxz' is the more laid back of the two tracks, with more of a hip hop style and overlapping lead synth lines, whilst 'Marilyn' is more upbeat with big sawtooth keys riding over a nicely swung house beat. As ever, Shephard has come up with the goods.
