FfAtP Is A Split Album By Min-Y-Llan & Floating Spirits
Artwork By Florence Meuleman
released June 22, 2017
"It’s truly ridiculous how quickly the first half of the year has gone. But that’s a good thing, because Touched Music has more releases under its belt and I have to wait less time for good things - good things like the next instalment in the Touched catalogue, “FfAtP”. This is a joint effort between Touched’s instigator Martin Boulton, AKA Min-Y-Llan and all-round good guys Floating Spirits, with some excellent remixes thrown in to boot.
Listening through for the first time you wouldn’t guess this is a split EP by any means. The tracks flow incredibly well and if these two artists were political parties they should definitely form a coalition. Seamless emulation of each other never gets in the way of their respective styles. For Min-Y-Llan this is quite the departure from the melodic and for the most part happy things we have come to expect. It’s dark, moody and suspicious with great use of spoken word samples.
Floating Spirits offers big sounds that are layered to perfection - it’s foot-tappingly good. There’s rarely a quiet moment and even those always have something going on. As a bonus the release finishes off with a group of remixes from other Touched contributors, as always willing to lend a hand with the great cause that is Macmillan Cancer Support."

Lovely collection of melodic electronic tunes. Some of them with strong old school elements, others with modern while retaining a non-pop dynamic nature. All in all forward looking, nevertheless. Gaston Guitart
