Boomkat Product Review:
Floating Points drops his astral disco roller 'Peoples Potential' backed with the uptempo electro-jazz of 'Shark Chase' for all the beat fiends.
The A-side has already been deployed over the previous months by sure hands from Gilles Peterson to Four Tet but the effect of heavenly harmonised contours and simple but irrefutably funked percussion certainly hasn't worn off yet.
The flipside 'Shark Chase' concentrates on the Detroit/Jazzwise end of his ouevre, using rough padded kicks a la Theo Parrish with wandering keys and a swollen electro-etched bassline to make his own mark on the style. The effect is something like Omar-S jamming with The Tribe round at C2's pad, and just as cool as you'd imagine.
