Well, what can we say? Floating Points lands on the Juno HQ charts with something new and special, a step in a provocative new direction for the long-time house and nu-jazz icon. Deeply stirring and reflective, "Kelso Dunes" sees the London producer and DJ gravitate towards the more experimental side of the equation; while he's never strayed too far from the left of field, this particular tune is his most accomplished take on free jazz, and serves to finally showcase his skills at crafting the same sort of music as he plays out on turntables, week in and week out. With a cavernous edge to the atmospherics circling the instruments, Floating Points comes through with a special moment of magic - one that doesn't need a B-side to support it.
