Floating Points

LesAlpx / Coorabell

Ninja Tune

Released: 12th July 2019



'LesAlpx' arrives as the next step in a career that has positioned Shepherd as one of electronic music's most surprising, innovative and uncompromising artists. The track's undeniable groove recalls breakout tracks like 'Nuits Sonores' which took over dancefloors around the world while simultaneously driving forward with the sophisticated craftsmanship and depth of production that has gained Floating Points respect far beyond the clubbing community.

Speaking of the track Shepherd says:
"I started going back to my early records and all the sounds I loved playing at clubs like Fabric and Plastic People. I wanted to capture the immediacy of that music and the feeling that I got when I was on the dancefloor, of being immersed in a track that pulls you along instantly. I actually made these tracks quite quickly, which helped to get rid of any desire to overthink the music – it’s essentially the sound of me having loads of fun with the machines in my studio and going back to basics."
