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
