Over the past 8 years or so we have had, along with Theo Parrish, the honour of playing the monthly residencies at a small basement club in Shoreditch, London with an impeccable sound system. After 20 years of operation, it was time to move on and close the doors on a place that has a lot to answer for in shaping modern club culture. To say this space along with the owner Ade’s singular vision was fundamental in our personal musical formation would be a complete understatement.
On the day of their closing, manager Charlotte asked us if we’d put the system through its paces for the last time that the club would be open to the public. We set about packing the anthems from our respective residencies and on the night once the people were through the doors played 2 records in turn for the rest of the dance. We included tracks of our own and of friends that were made with that place in mind. Records like Daphni – Ye Ye and Four Tet – Pinnacles were made to first be played at Kieran’s nights there, and the Floating Points – Vacuum EP was born out of the CD-R night at the club, and its launch party was the trigger for Sam’s monthly residency.
We set this recording up just before the start of the night and unfortunately it distorts in places, but we make no apology for how joyfully noisy people get! The vibe in the room this night was typical of the club on any given night and we hope this recording captures just a fraction of the spirit of a Plastic People night.
A massive thank you from us to everyone that has come down to the nights over the years and supported our music there. We are truly humbled to have shared the music we love with people at this place, and your energy in turn has influenced the way we make music on an unfathomable scale. We also thank the bosses Charlotte Kepel and Ade Fakile for inviting us to the club and having faith in us over these years! All the best for the future!
See you in the dance,
Sam & Kieran

Thanks to the party people who make all this happen.
The second instalment of our night celebrating soul from around the world saw DJ Love on The Run from NYC to bless the Plastic People sound system alongside FP. 5 Hours of warm music on the EMTs. Recorded live at Plastic People on the 25th of January 2014. Unfortunately the recorder died in the last hour, so we had to cut it short.Thank you to everyone that came to get down.

Eglo Records are proud to announce our latest signing, the incredibly talented and equally surreal Kirkis. The Melbourne based musician will be dropping his album Liverbleach in early 2014, introduced via 7 inch single Worm Jelly/Oh Serene Zoltar.
The group, headed by bassist/producer/writer/painter/mastermind Matthew Kirkis are an explosive medley of colour and sound, drawing on influences from free jazz and prog rock through to hip hop, punk, pop and rnb. Deep fried and re-imagined Kirkis pushes todays musical climate through black holes and rainbows. The results as wonderful as a bag of skittles exploding in your microwave.
An associate of the awesome Hiatus Kaiyote, Kirkis is set to bring his jilted blend of psychedelic wizardry to these shores very soon. Until then check out the Liverbleach teaser video below. You can also download his previous album Purple Fruit For X-Ray Vision for free HERE. Keep your eyes peeled and your wigs locked tight.
Sam decided to throw a little get down at plastic people last week in celebration of late 70s soul/jazz and emerging disco sounds. The expert diggers Red Greg & Jeremy Underground Paris joined him in bringing these sweet sounds to the party!
As a big thanks to everyone that came down we decided to post up the recording from the night. And for everyone that couldn’t make it down, there’s a plan to do it again
Big thanks to Red Greg, Jeremy, all the amazing dancers and the EMTs for behaving themselves.
