Every so oft, you get a track that makes you simply lean back and nod your head. I was shot on email with a link to the track and despite having no idea who this was, I jumped on the link.
What's this dude's name? Floatingpoints
What?? Well, looks like London's got another one on the come up. The 22 yr old accomplished pianist Floatingpoints aka FTPS has been bangin'em out since the tender age of 16. Very young, he's been courted and has made the playlists of the beat music British Lords: the Benjis, the Gilles and the Marie Annes. They've all anointed FTPS apparently shortly after his random submission of a Reel Peoples' rmx of 'Love Me Like This'.
Plans are to have a release in the New Year on a newly formed Eglo records. Def a little something to keep a lookout for right there... In any case, be sure to peep FTPS on his myspace and show love. In the mean time, make sure to take in this extra pretty track right here... Shangrila. I swear that if you close your eyes - you can see it. Shouts to my man Alex @ AYK
