The Invisible – Life’s Dancers (Floating Points Remix)

Floating Points has stretched out The Invisible’s ‘Life Dancers’ giving the London band’s latest single more space and added orchestration. A relaxing and reflective number to join the original and ‘First Time’, a track FP co-wrote with The Invisible, on this Ninja Tune vinyl release.

Floating Points – For Marmish Part II

This one’s nearly quarter of an hour long. It’s the B-side to Floating points’ forthcoming ‘Kuiper’ EP – the vinyl for which is released on Friday 22nd July, look sharp.

Floating Points & Four Tet play Plastic People out

Iconic London club Plastic People closed its doors last weekend, with the venue’s last public night featuring an epic performance from two DJs central to its identity in recent years. Floating Points and Four Tet played back-to-back for six hours on Friday 2nd January, and posted the typically eclectic set on SoundCloud on Monday.

Head there to read their articulate accompanying note which states, somewhat emotionally, that they are “truly humbled to have shared the music we love with people at this place, and your energy in turn has influenced the way we make music on an unfathomable scale.”

Floating Points – Nuits Sonores

So much good music on the blog right now.

Here’s another gem. Instant classic from Floating Points. ‘Nuits Sonores’. Out in December.

We came across it on Ben UFO’s Fabric mix from the London mega-club’s recent 15th birthday bash (worth a listen too). It really reminds us of this beauty from 2011…

Brilliant stuff from Floating Points.

Floating Points – King Bromeliad

After essentially crashing twitter over the weekend, feels only right that we bring this from Floating Points to your attention:

Clearly taking an interest in the finer details of producing (as befitting the phd student he is), Sam Shepherd has created eight minutes of atmospheric shuffle with overt jazzy tones. ‘King Bromeliad’ is out soon on the label he co-owns with Alex Nut, Eglo.

Here are other things he’s been doing:

Nice yes?

The Invisible – Wings (Floating Points Remix)

A moulding of The Invisible and Floating Points was only going to produce great music, and they haven’t disappointed. Eglo Records co-chief Sam Shepherd (Floating Points’ real-world name) has drawn out and injected atmosphere into ‘Wings’, the new single from The Invisible’s second album, ‘Rispah’.

Listen to a radio rip above or hear the full track exclusively on the Guardian website here.

Both collaborators have clear influences: Radiohead for The Invisible and Four Tet for Floating Points, and frankly it’s a credit to them that you can draw those parallels so easily. Building on frontman/producer Dave Okumo’s soulful guitar riff, the song meanders wistfully through the original‘s electro-rock structure. Real dreamy.

Out July 9th on London’s Ninja Tune (who also have ‘Rispah’ available to stream on their soundcloud) we say get a copy for Dave, who was recently electrocuted during a gig in Nigeria and broke his leg. Cheer him up, cheer you up. Everyone’s a winner.

Krywald & Farrer – Top Pocket Persies

Percolate residents Krywald & Farrer are slowly establishing themselves not only as top notch selectors, warming up dancefloors for heavyweights including Floating Points, Jackmaster and Moodyman to name a few, but also for penning their own tunes. They’ve got skills in the production department and their recent ‘Top Pocket Persies’ EP is a good case in point.

The stand-out track for us is the entrancing ‘Spoon Billed Sandpiper’, though the other two tracks are no less worth checking out – ‘Is That Saeed’ is a jazzy, fidgety number and the soulful deep house of ‘Blue Brother’ closes the EP, the latter ending with a sample that hones in on their world music inclinations from previous EP, ‘The People’s Asafo’. Similarly, worth your time.

Rob Da Bank’s very own dance-focussed imprint Silver Bear Recordings are overseeing the business side of things for this release. ‘Top Pocket Persies’ hit the shelves last Friday.

And for the longer listen, this mix they did for Stamp The Wax should be bookmarked, it’s top:

Hunee – Hunch Music

It’s not often you get a debut album of this quality.

‘Hunch Music’ is the inaugural album from Korean Berliner Hunee and it’s a real journey. Going from the ethereal to the bassy and back again in 11 short tracks, it’s an LP that reflects his record store roots and eclectic tastes. Listening to it you can see why his superb b2b with Floating Points at Worldwide Festival, which we were honoured to be there for, worked so perfectly. Both selectors of the highest order.

Pick of the bunch for us is ‘Crossroads’. Give the album a listen and let us know what yours is. Out on Rush Hour Music now.

Rome Fortune – Lights Low

Just as we recover from his storming back to back set with Floating Points at Worldwide Festival, a borderline boastful display of Four Tet’s multiple-stringed bow hits the web:

The second collaboration between Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune and our boy Kieran has everything you’d expect from the pair, Rome’s languid flow kept moving by a percussive synth riff the likes of which we are gluttonously used to from Four Tet.

Having said that, we actually prefer the first track from the duo, ‘One Time For’ but hey, make your own mind up. Don’t (do) listen to us:
