Red Bull Music Academy are gearing up for their next event that will take place this fall in Madrid (original plans for Tokyo were scrapped due to the recent tragic events in Japan), they teamed up with the fine people over at Italian media conglomerate Pig Radio for an interesting podcast/mix/interview with British producer/dj Floating Points.

“Today is the day of Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points, one of the most appreciated producers among british radio DJs, from Mary Anne Hobbes to Benji B via the legendary Gilles Peterson. In the last three years Sam has released several 12” including our favourite “Vacuum Boogie”. In 2010 together with Rinse.FM’s Alexander Nut he founded Eglo Records, which became in a short while one of the reference label for the new british sounds. In the next days Eglo will release “The Follow You EP”, a collaboration between Floating Points and the soul singer Fatima. It’s about a “journey through soul, gospel, blues and house”, which are some of the genres of Shepherd’s musical background. While we are waiting, you can spend one hour listening to some very good music, selected and described by him, through the link below.”
