After his debut national tour in 2012, that saw him close Melbourne Music Week, spin tracks at secret parties across the city, FLOATING POINTS has since been hailed as one of Australia’s favourite selectors. Renown for his genre-spanning-crate digging – The Operatives are proud to announce his return in 2014 for a exclusive schedule including Perth’s Origin Festival and Melbourne’s infamous Let Them Eat Cake.
Producer/DJ/Musician Sam Shepherd aka FLOATING 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 catalog of music that can be heard gracing the sound systems 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 Peterson’s Prestigious World Wide Awards.
Not bad for a producer who spends the majority of his time in a laboratory researching Neuroscience. Classically trained in music, Sam 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, his signature sound manifests itself in many forms, always deep and soulful, but with reputable bounce and heavy bass. Co-founder of Eglo Records, FLOATING POINTS knows no boundaries when it comes to creativity and expression.
