Track of the Week
Floating Points – ‘Nuits Sonores’ (2014)
Technically this hasn’t been released yet (although it is available for preorder
). However, as Sam Shephard, AKA Floating Points, is coming to Bristol this Saturday, I thought it was fitting to highlight his new track ‘Nuit Sonores’. It is more dancefloor orientated than his previous releases, but it isn’t rushed to impress a dancefloor either. It is a slow-building deep house track – with all the sort of lush organic samples we have come to expect from one of electronic/jazz/house’s most talented individuals. The trips of acid, the layered drums and clicks produce 12 minutes of dance floor brilliance – there is no generic 808 drum beat in here. Shephard never loses sight of where he has come from; the drums, cymbals, piano all sound organic and jazzy. It’s as if we are sat in front of a band listening! Bring on Saturday at the Factory Studios!
I missed this a couple of weeks ago – but this EP by K15
on Wild Oats is amazing! Breath it in.
Whirlpool Productions – ‘From Disco to Disco’ (1996)
A crossover disco/techno track from the early 90s that was produced in Cologne? Hell yes! This is an absolute jam. It has everything – a driven techno percussion, disco style vocals, acid house flavours in the background and jazzy piano! What is not to like? Dive in, this will get your hips shaking!
