Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points is one of the driving forces behind Eglo Records. As a Co-Founder and the first artist to release on the label, its fair to say that the young Mr Shepherd contributes a large piece to the Eglo puzzle. A neuroscientist by day, Dj/Producer/Composer by night, Floating Points knows no boundaries when it comes to creativity and expression. Classically trained from a young age and with a strong passion for Jazz, Floating Points has progressed into one of the worlds most exciting producers, as well as one of the club scenes leading Dj's.
