Floating Points a.k.a Sam Shepard. Scientist by day and DJ extraordinaire by night. The variety in influences is mirrored in the diversity of his productions – one week it’s broken, the next a string quartet and sometimes just straight up gritty beats. But whatever the flavor it always ends up sounding quite delicious.

Of course we could be all talk but we’re gonna handle this in true Strang Fruit fashion and just give you a taste of what to expect on the 17 of september 2010. For those among you that really would like to know more about Floating Points click here and you will be reffered to the latest interview he did with dummymag.com. It’s an interview that describes the person behind the musician very well.

Since Floating Points has produced and remixed music in all kinds of genres I guess it’s time for a small musical journey. So sit back, grab a cup of coffee and let the music take control.

To get you in the right state of mind you can start by streaming Floating Points Love me Like this …

Okay after the awesome visuals above … you are now ready to continue your journey with  the Vacuum Boogie Floating Points mix by Ally All.  The mix contains Floating Points most recent tunes & remixes and will certainly have you in the right mindset for Friday in no time.

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
