London based radio programmer, neuroscience student, and Four Tet buddy, Sam Shepherd finally drops his first LP on Pluto (UK) and Luaka Bop (US). After his much acclaimed EPs Nuits Sonores and King Bromeliad and a long collaboration with Rinse FM's Alexander Nut on his Eglo Records label, the left-field mancunian DJ and producer whose musical tastes know no borders is ready to share with the world his first full length.
The album features various contributors, including Tom Skinner and Leo Taylor (drums), Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne and Layla Rutherford (vocals), Susumu Mukai (bass), Alex Reeve (guitar), Qian Wu and Edward Benton (violin), Matthew Kettle (viola) and Joe Zeitlin (cello). Floating Points also contributes vocals.
Elaenia is out on 6th November.
