Floating Points Preps New 19-Minute Track
'Ratio' will be released on October 19.
Sam Shepherd (a.k.a Floating Points) will release a new 19-minute track, titled “Ratio,” on October 19.
“Ratio” is described as an “epic rack bordering on 19-minutes that harks back to his earlier dance floor focus releases.” It was developed over the course of the summer as part of the UK artist’s solo live electronic show at festivals around the world.
The full-length version will be available on all digital platforms.
The track will also be available on vinyl, presented as a deconstructed mix of the 18+ minutes. The A-side of the vinyl will feature the track in two parts: the first nine minutes being identical to the digital version, followed by solely the organ section of the second half. The vinyl’s B side, in contrast, will feature the beat/drums and bassline of the second half of the track in isolation.
Releasing the track in such a fashion, Shepherd encourages DJs to create their own mixes by bringing the different elements together in their own style.
A. Ratio (Pt. II Organ)
B. Ratio (Pt. II Dub)
Pluto will release “Ratio” on October 19, with clips streaming below.
