For those who like the early Daft Punk records and want to delve further into the French house scene, DJ Gregory and his series of monkiers are a great place to start.
It’s amazing that this Floating Points record is 6 years old, released on ‘Planet Mu’ in the summer of 2009. Despite it being one of his earliest releases, it’s still fresh and forward thinking, proving Sam Shepherd’s ability to produce timeless electronic music.
