Continuing the stream of recorded lectures from Red Bull Music Academy's Tokyo edition—which have featured artists like Ben UFO and Robert Hood—a recent session with Eglo co-founder and celebrated UK producer Floating Points (a.k.a. Sam Shepherd) can now be watched in full. Throughout his 90-minute chat with Deviation's Benji B, Shepherd covers a lot of ground: from early training in classical music and jazz to the influence of London venue Plastic People on his career, the mixer he designed with Isonoe, record collecting, and his recent collaboration with Moroccan Gnawa musicians. For RBMA's breakdown of all topics covered, head here; otherwise, the lecture can be watched in full below.
