FLOATING POINTS

Chris Martins WRITTEN BY
Chris Martins

Mad scientist Sam Shepherd is a Londoner splicing the brainier strains of electronic music's last 30 years — from the funky acid of Luke Vibert to the jazzed bass swoops of Flying Lotus — with pure body music like Balearic bounce and deep house. With a background in classical music and a PhD in pharmacology, Shepherd is ace at pushing his smartly arranged pieces into transcendently trippy territory, evidenced by his 16-piece Floating Points Ensemble. He bends the boundaries of techno and can make his own drugs — of course the boys love him.
