Floating Points will release a new 12" next month and has shared a new single, 'LesAlpx'.

The first material from the influencial UK producer – real name Sam Shepherd – since 2017, the track finds him returning to the propulsive, dancefloor intensity of his earlier work, while retaining the stellar atmospheres and jazz sensibitliy of his 2015 LP 'Elaenia'. The track serves as the A-side on the upcoming Ninja Tune release.

“I started going back to my early records and all the sounds I loved playing at clubs like Fabric and Plastic People”, Shepherd has said of the new track. “I wanted to capture the immediacy of that music and the feeling that I got when I was on the dancefloor, of being immersed in a track that pulls you along instantly.”

'LesAlpx' and B-side 'Coorabella' will be available 12th July. Stream it below.
