Boomkat Product Review:
Since the start of the year Floating Points has been on the lips of every beat head from Alexander Nut to Mary-Anne Hobbs. The classically trained producer has brought a lush wave of releases with him on his own Eglo imprint and the established House outlet R2, sweetly covering everything from Thriller style 80's soul edits to Flylo style digital psyche-beats with ease. Planet Mu have obviously spotted the potential in this fella and signed his 'J&W' and 'K&G' beats, providing a lighter counterpoint to the heavyweight rinsers from Brackles also out this week. 'J&W Beat' has the UK Broken Beat flexibility of Bugz In The Attic mixed with a tangy relish of IDM-indebted electronics, but unfortuantely that track is destined to be ingnored by everyone once they reach 'K&G Beat' on the flip. Possibly the most lush concoction of psyched-soul and Burial-set 2-step we've heard this year, it's a guaranteed spine chillah and comes very highly recommended - ESSENTIAL TWELVE!!!
