Since making his debut in 2009, Floating Points’ Sam Shepherd has been ahead of his time in England’s dance-music scene. Though the first in his steady stream of singles came out during the UK’s fruitful electronic music era immediately following the rise of dubstep, it was instantly clear that Floating Points didn’t fit the scene. His music was generally slower, more traditionally funky than anything tagged “bass,” and integrated musical concepts from house and disco. He was reliant on live instruments (specifically keyboards) and, rather than approaching his music like your typical producer, used them like a player, composer, and arranger.

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
