Theo Parrish recently ended his infamous monthly East London session with a freshly pressed piece of Mr Points black plastic. He’s already provided guest mixes for Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B and Gilles Peterson, and recently recorded his fourteen member strong ‘Floating Points Ensemble’ for a BBC Maida Vale session, resulting in him winning best ‘Maida Vale Session’ at Gilles Petersons Prestigious World Wide Awards.

Not bad for a young man who spends the majority of his time in a laboratory researching Neuroscience. Classically trained in music, Mr Shepherd applies his academic knowledge with modern styles, emersing himself in the cultures of dance music, with a vinyl habit that has taken him to Chicago and Detroit, simply to buy records. As well as his impressive production style, writing and arrangement skills, Floating Points is also building a reputation as one of the world's most exciting Dj talents, travelling the globe with his handmade E&S rotarary mixer.



Be it in house, hip hop, dubstep, techno, jazz or classical, the Floating Points sound manifests itself in many forms, always deep and soulful, but with reputable bounce and heavy bass, fans include Harmonic 313, Kode 9, Ramadanman, Geeneus, Four Tet and Radiohead! Floating Points hails from the talented fam of CDR Sessions in London, he is one of the most promising producers to be watched out for this year.
