Floating Points (Eglo)
Floating Points is one of the most exciting music producers and DJs to come out of the UK recently. A classically trained musician and PhD student in neuroscience, Sam Shepherd, has the same passion as Melting Pot for sound quality; understanding that the better the sound system, the better the night. He is a resident at Plastic People in London and has been instrumental in the current refurbishment in the sound system, adding in high-end hi-fi components to take it further than most other clubs in the world.
Sam is also co-founder of Eglo Records, home to the likes of Fatima and FunkinEven, with his 7" "For you" the first release, followed up with the excellent Vacuum EP, played by disco to techno DJs. His production work, like his DJing, crosses genre barriers. Expect to hear everything from jazz, to disco, funk, house, techno.
His interest in all things analogue - from synths to drum machines, vinyl to tape - has shaped his sound and style into a warm and textured collage of past, present and beyond, genre-less in its nature, unpredictable and ever impressive, it's not hard to see why Floating Points' music stands out so much in today's sonic landscape.
He loved playing at Melting Pot last year so much that he can't wait to get back to get his hands on our high-end hi-fi/DJ set up.
Floating Points and Melting Pot - a match made in heaven!
