@ Flyover Bar
Sunday 29th December – 3pm
Niche Productions & Astral People are proud to present something quite special to help you all finish of 2013 on the right note; hosting none other than Eglo Records co-founder Floating Points for an extended set in an inner CBD courtyard.
Producer/DJ/Musician Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points has been on the scene since his debut release in February 2009. Sam has been a firm fixture of radio show playlists worldwide and has steadily built a back catalogue of music that can be heard gracing the soundsystems of the globe’s more respectable nightclubs and warehouses.
Theo Parrish recently ended his infamous monthly East London session with a freshly pressed piece of Mr Points black plastic. He’s already provided guest mixes for Mary Anne Hobbes, Benji B and Gilles Peterson, and recently recorded his fourteen member strong ‘Floating Points Ensemble’ for a BBC Maida Vale session, resulting in him winning best ‘Maida Vale Session’ at Gilles Petersons Prestigious World Wide Awards.
Not bad for a young man who spends the majority of his time in a laboratory researching Neuroscience. Classically trained in music, Mr Shepherd applies his academic knowledge with modern styles, immersing himself in the cultures of dance music, with a vinyl habit that has taken him to Chicago and Detroit, simply to buy records. As well as his impressive production style, writing and arrangement skills, Floating Points is also building a reputation as one of the world’s most exciting Dj talents, travelling the globe with his handmade E&S rotary mixer.
Be it in house, hip hop, dubstep, techno, jazz or classical, the Floating Points sound manifests itself in many forms, always deep and soulful, but with reputable bounce and heavy bass, fans include Harmonic 313, Kode 9, Ramadanman, Geeneus, Four Tet and Radiohead.
On his last tour of Australia, off the back of his genre defining productions such as ‘Love Me (Like This)’, ‘Vacuum Boogie’ and ‘Arp3’, Shepherd amazed audiences nation wide with his impeccable taste and skills and we expect nothing less when he hits Sydney later this month.
