Floating Points – Vacuum Boogie


Format – 12″ EP
Label – Eglo
Genre – Electronic, House


A1 – Vacuum Boogie
B1 – Truly
B2 – Argonaute II

“Vacuum Boogie,” as the title suggests flows upwards, straight into air. The melodies reach, reach, reach until you’re nearly ready to dive into the track yourself and push them where they so obviously want to go. This sort of unresolved tension is where Points, AKA Sam Shepherd, excels. You’re either hanging on to the edge of your seat or hanging on to your dancing partner waiting for the hit. The same goes for “Truly” and “Argonaute II,” on a more muted scale. The groove is paramount, the instruments locked into a Bolero build that only rarely gets extinguished, only to be built up again.
