FLOATING POINTS Crushes the Rechabite

Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points is heading to our favourite legendary venue that’s all brand new, The Rechabite. Catch him doing a DJ set there on Friday, December 27.

It’s a perfect opportunity to work off any Christmas excess on the d-floor, and get down to his new album Crush, which came out in October on Ninja Tune. His first album in four years, Crush is a tempestuous blast of electronic experimentalism whose title alludes to the pressure-cooker of the current environment we find ourselves in.

Floating Points has so many guises that it’s not easy to pin him down. There’s the composer whose 2015 debut album Elaenia was met with rave reviews and took him from dancefloors to festival stages worldwide. The curator whose record labels have brought soulful new sounds into the club, and, on his esteemed imprint Melodies International, reinstated old ones. The classicist, the disco guy that makes machine music, the digger always searching for untapped gems to re-release.

And then there’s the DJ whose liberal approach to genre saw him once drop a 20-minute instrumental by spiritual saxophonist Pharoah Sanders in Berghain. We can’t wait.

Crush is out now. Floating Points plays a DJ set at The Rechabite on Friday, December 27. Tickets from Eventbrite.
