How does your pre-order work?

Ninja Tune has just announced a brand new album from one of our favourite producers, Floating Points, and it's sounding like his most dazzling delight yet. Having kept fans on their toes with his forays into ambient, jazz, and all manner of eclecticism in recent years, Cascade finds Sam "Floating Points" Shepherd expertly weaving these new flavours into the club music that first made him a UK electronica star. Featuring eight new tunes that take their sweet time, the album also pays tribute to Shepherd's home town of Manchester - Flying Out

Floating Points announces his forthcoming new album, Cascade, out via Ninja Tune. Cascade pushes Floating Points’ sound forward into new places. The eight songs here are allowed to smoulder and spark for up to eight minutes at a time, allowing for more expansive exploration of sounds and grooves than before.

A subtle homage to his hometown of Manchester ripples across Cascade. Afflecks Palace an enveloping glide of harp melodies overtaken by otherworldly bleeps and beeps, named after a Mancunian market described as an “emporium of eclecticism.” Elsewhere, there’s Key 103, named after “an underground Manchester radio station a young Sam Shepherd would listen to “religiously”.

Almost a decade on since Elaenia, his revered debut album, the composer has discovered ways to thread his experiments outside of club music seamlessly into his music designed for the dancefloor.
