Late last year, British producer/DJ/actual doctor of neuroscience Floating Points blew a few minds when he flipped his reputation as a tech man after a couple of solid club EPs with his debut album Eleania, which was an entirely organic and entirely awesome post rock/jazz-inspired earworm replete with string sections and bad-ass crescendos (see Peroration Six for proof).

Now Floating Points is taking his new sound on the road with a live band. Some might question his motives, but why don’t you try touring a foreign country with nothing but a bag of vinyl to keep you company?

In addition to the live dates, there will be a DJ slot thrown in for good measure.

You can also get a taster of what to expect with a 50-minute live set from Thump featuring Floating Points with an 11-piece orchestra and a laser show.
