NIGHTMOVES PRESENTS: FLOATING POINTS @ LIFE //
On the 24TH APRIL, NIGHTMOVES are back at LIFE for a very special BANK HOLIDAY SUNDAY EXTRAVAGANZA, presenting the brilliant FLOATING POINTS + very special guests…
SAM SHEPARD is the keyboard player and arranger of the 15 piece ensamble FLOATING POINTS. Through his musical arrangements for the group, he has created a reputation as one of the most pioneering and orginal sound makers emerging in new British music, drawing on influences as diverse as Jazz, Detroit Techno and UK Garage and Dubstep. FLOATING POINTS have undoubtedly released some of the freshest and most interesting material of the last few years, from 2009’s boogie crossover monster ‘Love Me Like This’ to his recent synth shuffling face melter ‘People’s Potential’. They are definitely a group to watch for big things in the near future.
Check out this classic, beautifully lush concoction of Psyched-Soul and 2-Step, released in 2009 and still sounding fresh today… ‘K&G Beat’ by Floating Points:
As a DJ, SHEPARD has been making waves with his recent sets at London’s infamous Plastic People; for a taste of what to expect at LIFE, check his recent Rinse FM session where he played a 2-hour, back to back set with Four Tet – just CLICK HERE to listen.
Joining Floating Points will be local legend and founder of the passionately ecclectic Well Rounded Records, ASHLEY MARLOWE aka DONGA. He is without doubt one of the finest DJs to grace Brighton in recent times. Expect nothing short of a musical journey from Donga who has promised to dig ‘extra deep’ for our extra special Bank Holiday party. Well Rounded has has proved itself to be a consistently vibrant and interesting platform for some of the most exciting producers surfacing in the UK at the moment – keep your eyes peeled for their next showcase night at THE TUBE, coming up this Saturday 16th April.
Plus we’ll have House, Electronica, Tech and Funky sounds coming through the ether from our very special support: ALEX BLACK + CARL MUIR, ACTION JACKSON, PRETTY RICKY and GLITTER MOUSE in Room 1, and a whole lot more in Room 2 where the DJ’s will be offering you the finest in Disco, Soul, Funk, Afrobeat and Organica…
