Legendary UK-based producer Floating Points has released a brand new album titled Crush. He’s one of the most innovative electronic musicians working today. This project is an eclectic, moody and intricately produced one, with moody and rather ethereal soundscapes.
Starting with “Falaise,” this intensely produced track starts off with synths and strings that give out a truly mesmeric tone to the record, with electronic beats that grow in intensity as the track progresses. “Last Bloom” and “Anasickmodular” are two intensely produced tracks, with electronic synths and dubstep-inspired beats dominating the soundscape of these two tracks in particular. “Requiem for CS70 and Strings” is a slow-paced track with strings and synths that make for a moody listen. “Environments” is a track that stands out to me for it’s wildly experimental production, with off-kilter beats and an almost suffocating and cacophonous. Tracks like “Birth” and “Sea-Watch” are beautiful compositions, with angelic keys and synths that feel soulful and utterly mesmerising. “Apoptose, Pt. 1” & “Apoptose, Pt. 2” are two layered and jittery tracks that add a sense of claustrophobia, clothing the album out in a pretty interesting manner. Overall, Floating Points comes through with an excellent new album that showcases exactly why he’s still one of the best producers around.
