Floating Points Unveils 19-Minute "Ratio" Single
Published Oct 06, 2017Floating Points (real name Sam Shepherd) followed up his acclaimed debut Elaenia with an EP titled Kuiper last year, and now he's returned with plans for a whopping 19-minute-long new single. "Ratio" is set to arrive digitally in its entirety on October 19.
It will also be given a 12-inch vinyl release that features a "deconstructed mix" of all 19 minutes. The A-side plays nine minutes of sound identical to that of the digital single, followed by just the organ section of the second half. In contrast, the B-side features the isolated sound of the beat and bassline in the second half.
Ahead of the official single release, Shepherd has shared a radio edit of the new track. Listen to a shortened version of "Ratio" here via Annie Mac's BBC Radio show.
