This is more like it Sam Sheperd aka Floating Points provides the world with a great mix. And shows his taste in music. Altough lots of people think Floating Points is post-dubstep or house. We know he’s so much more. Whether assembling tracks on his own, running the leftfield Eglo imprint with partner Alexander Nut, or leading the grandiose Floating Points Ensemble with a bevvy of live musicians, Shepherd clearly isn’t just another UK bass music producer. As this My Plastic People mix—made in tribute to the endangered Northeast London nightspot—proves, his tastes extend well beyond electronic music—much of the podcast focuses on jazz and funk gems from the 1970s, with only a few newer cuts making an appearance. You can check Floating Points in september on Strange Fruit at Watt. But before enjoy this great mix. Click

Alex Nut just dropped another slightly grimey gem yesterday and made it available for download here. This is afcourse the follow up to the ALEX NUTS’ Z SIDES PT2 FOLDER he did a while ago. Anyways Enjoy!!
Don’t you just love it when creative minds give you a taste of whatever is in there. Well…I know I do!!
Better yet I think you’re gonna love it as much as I do. Because Mr. Nut dropped some “Z sides” joints for your aural pleasure the other day and let’s just say that it would not be a very wise decision to refuse a token this wonderful!! So if you want to go ‘Nuts’ I suggest you just download the Z sides part 2 folder here and to give you a taste of why you should… just listen and enjoy!

FunkinEven 1956 is the latest artist to join the ranks of Eglo records (Floating Points / Alexander Nut). Featuring the incredible vocal talent of Swedish born/Hackney bred artist Fatima (who some of you will recognize through collaborations with SA-RA’s Shafiq Husayn and Stones Throws Dam-Funk) Kleer is the title track taken from the forthcoming 4 track EP, which showcases Funkineven’s individual futuristic soul bounce. Being his debut release we felt it only right to go all out and press the vinyl up on clear wax, so hold tight for the finished product. Having already been heavily supported in it’s demo form by 1Xtra’s Benji B, the track is now finished, mastered and ready to take on the globe!
West Londoner FunkinEven creates sounds that inhabit a similar atmosphere to The Neptunes, Model 500 and Bugz In The Attic just as much as they do Cameo, NPG and Zapp. Take a listen and invent your own labels… we just know that everytime it’s been performed live it has most definitely “blown up tha spot!”. The full EP will also feature two B side tacks ‘Mad Swing’ and ‘You’, which where previously available as rough versions on the net but have now been finished, polished and mastered for your bumping enjoyment.
