In 2015 Sam Shepherd – aka Floating Points – released his debut Elaenia. Earlier this year he followed up the album with Reflections – Mojave Desert, a short film and soundtrack featuring tracks recorded in the Mojave Desert.
Today. Floating Points has announced his latest project, Ratio; an epic track bordering on 19-minutes that harks back to his earlier dance floor focus releases. Over the course of the summer Floating Points has developed Ratio as part of his solo live electronic show at festivals around the world.
The A side of the vinyl will feature the track in two parts: the first nine minutes being identical to the digital version, followed by solely the organ section of the second half. The vinyl’s B Side in contrast will feature the beat/drums and bassline of the second half of the track in isolation.
Releasing the track in such a fashion, Shepherd encourages DJs to create their own mixes by bringing the different elements together in their own style.
