Floating Points is the name that Manchester-born Sam Shepherd uses when he’s not pursuing his other professional interest – neuroscience. The PHD-holding DJ, who held down a residency at quasi-spiritual London club Plastic People until its sad closure in January 2015, had already released a stack of floor-focused 12-inches. But his debut album ‘Elaenia’ took the freewheeling Floating Points vibe to the next level, weaving together live cellos, voyaging synths, Rhodes piano and post-rock arrangements into a seven-track treat aimed at the head, not the hips.
