Calling all musicians in NYC, LA & New Orleans!

Thursday, August 4th, 2016



Any time we get to speak about Doug Hream Blunt, we often get lost in saying what an incredibly sweet and warm person he is. He really is the sweetest and most gentle person we’ve ever met!

That now said, we can tell you about a new project we’re working on with Doug: In partnership with Martin Guitar & Ace Hotel, we are calling all musicians, no younger then 12 years of age, who live in in New York, Los Angeles and New Orleans. Doug is coming here to play shows and we’d like to invite you to join a band to play with him. Do you play music? Are you older than 12 :)? We’d love to hear from you!

We did this project in London earlier this summer and it was so much fun! Doug played two shows at a fantastic festival called Field Day. For the first show he played with a band formed via craigslist. For the second show, he wrote new songs with a 30-piece band called The Messengers.

Please visit for more info 🙂

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Heyyah! The summer is here and Floating Points has just released a new EP called ‘Kuiper’ AND announced a new North American tour in September – how about that?!


Starting in Los Angeles at FYF Festival in late August, Sam and his band will hit ten cities from California to Florida, ending at the beautiful-open-air-arena-thats-not-a-Greek-amphiteather of the North Beach Bandshell in Miami.

Following his debut album ‘Elaenia’ last year (hailed a “a soaring, beautiful electronic jazz journey” by The Guardian), Sam has been developing his live show and band at festivals across Europe all summer. Check out this performance from Glastonbury courtesy of the BBC, or this fantastic session from KEXP when they were over here in April.
