4. Floating Points
As a long term lurker on the brownswood site, I had been watching the continued rise of FPS work for nearly two years now. From demos and remixes played at CDR nights that eventually went on to be his big breakthrough full releases, it has been interesting to quietly watch him develop.
I think he would have been in my "heroes" list just for Love Me Like This, but through in his three other releases (each of which also came with some stunning b-sides!) and the remix for Bei Bei and Georgia Anne Muldrow and finally the live session on Gilles Peterson's show, says that the album and live shows from this guy are going to be amongst the highlights of next year.
