Floating Points


Ninja Tune
His first record in two years, ‘LesAlpx’ pretty much picks up from where 2017’s brilliant ‘Ratio’ left off: somewhere immersed in the middle of a packed dancefloor at 3am in the morning. Bearing all the hallmarks of Shepherd’s exquisite production style, that sense of time, space and general sonic craftsmanship found in previous releases like ‘Elaenia’ is still there, but now, its DNA is weaponised — driven by a renewed sense of immediacy, urgency and exigency. The result is a sub five-minute masterclass in potent four-four rhythms, percussive electronic grooves and no-nonsense techno minimalism.
