Floating Points is locked for the next ‘Late Night Tales’ compilation.
The DJ and producer, AKA Sam Shepherd, will unveil his addition to the revered series next month, which spans global soul, ambient, jazz and folk.
"The music is a selection of the kind of records I play to set the tone when DJing all night long," he said of the idea behind the release. "I’ve learnt about a lot of incredible music from listening to 'Late Night Tales' over the years, so I jumped at the opportunity to compile one myself."

San Francisco club Mezzanine will close after losing its lease, with the final parties set for late-2019.

“This year’s been crazy and hectic but good too,” smiles Mafalda. “I’m happy.” And she should be: the London- based, Portuguese DJ has truly gone from in-the-know favourite to widely recognised name in the last 12 months. What makes it all the more remarkable is that the music she plays isn’t stuff you would normally associate with clubs. It flows freely between jazz, world music, soul and funk. It is often obscure and unknown, but still manages to connect with people and send them wild.
