Floating Points – Crush


Sam Shepherd, known professionally as Floating Points, is a British electronic music producer, DJ, and musician. Shepherd’s musical influences include Claude Debussy, Olivier Messiaen, and Bill Evans. Crush is his second studio album, released on 18 October 2019. Shepherd began work on the album following a 2017 tour with the xx. Taking inspiration from German krautrock band Harmonia’s 2007 album Live 1974, Shepherd played 30 minute improvisational sets using only a Buchla synthesizer and a Korg drum machine. Upon his return to the studio, Shepherd used the same equipment as the basis for recording and completed the album in five weeks. Unlike the debut Floating Points album Elaenia (2015), Crush does not feature any live guitars or drums.
