By every rights the kind of artist that Floating Points is with his leanings towards electronic music, club music, experimental, jazz, spiritual jazz, ambient and prog (standing by Reflections being that) should produce the most sterile, clinical, technically amazing but lacking that pure joy music one has ever heard. Yet, Sam Shepherd continues to produce a broad yet distinguishable music that touches the soul, makes you want to dance with a euphoric spring in your step and then sink into your own personal heaven and take it all in. 

Floating Points announces forthcoming album, Cascade, out via Ninja Tune. Cascade is available on black vinyl and limited edition universal sparkle indie exclusive vinyl.

Cascade pushes Floating Points’ sound forward into new places. The eight songs here are allowed to smoulder and spark for up to eight minutes at a time, allowing for more expansive exploration of sounds and grooves than before.

A subtle homage to his hometown of Manchester ripples across Cascade. “Afflecks Palace” an enveloping glide of harp melodies overtaken by otherworldly bleeps and beeps, named after a Mancunian market described as an “emporium of eclecticism.” Elsewhere, there’s ‘Key 103’, named after “an underground Manchester radio station a young Sam Shepherd would listen to “religiously”.

Almost a decade on since Elaenia, his revered debut album, the composer has discovered ways to thread his experiments outside of club music seamlessly into his music designed for the dancefloor.
