Floating Points

For some time now Floating Points - real name Sam Shepherd - has been one of the more inquisitive, original voices in UK electronic music.

Releasing a string of material and playing some challenging yet dexterous sets, Floating Points has outlined a stance which is as engrossing as it is groundbreaking.

Debut album 'Elaenia' will be released on November 6th, and it's billed as a culmination of five years work. The accompanying clip was shot in and around Rio Tinto - a corner of the Spanish and Portuguese border - as well as in the studio in Barcelona over a period of six months.

Directed by Junior Martínez and Pablo Barquín, it's a unique insight into an exciting project. Floating Points: "We've all been friends for a long time, and I was always hanging around their studio in Barcelona. When he [Barquín] invented a light painting machine, the idea to do a music video came about very quickly. We wanted to juxtapose the light painting in an exotic environment and this lead us to Rio Tinto."

Check it out now.

'Elaenia' is due to be released on November 6th.
