Hello music lovers and welcome in our sixth day of #a-zmusic challenge started by @psos.

Including introduction to the game, we are already a week with you and based on your activity, DAY E seems to receive the smallest attention. Luckily or not, atmospheric drum and bass and psychedelic chilling post-rock E-Teams are already behind us, leaving space for for two electronic artists which are far away for leaving space and coming down on Earth. Adjust your telescopes and point it on

Sam Shepherd, British neuroscience PhD turned into globally respected electronic musician as well as leader, composer and arranger for 16-people electronic/jazz big-band Floating Points Ensemble awarded on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2010 for the 'Best BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale Session’. Shepherd is also a co-founder of the label Eglo Records and the first artist to release on the label. Beside of own label, he also released his recordings on Ninja Tune & Planet MU and list of his releases contains 26 singles & eps and 4 long play albums, which were very positively acclaimed worldwide. Innovative way of blending electronic and jazz, distinctive sounds, impossible to hear anywhere else since the beginning were an original trademark for his music. In the recent years, Floating Points went also into audio-visual shows, and one of his most outstanding performances can be watched online here. For the DAY F, we decided to show one of his biggest hits as well as one of the earliest works, released in 2010, five years before his successful debut long play album.

FOUR TET

Kieran Hebden, another British music producer and DJ represented in our #a-zchallenge. Started with own post-rock band in the second part of 90's, Hebden quickly adopted a variety of other instruments and developed a huge passion for electronic music, which totally sucked him in somewhere around 1997. Beginning with experimental electronica, acid-jazz, ambient, idm, downtempo and even disco-house, with the new albums, ideas and changes, Four Tet has granted unofficial tittle of the godfather of the completely new music genre - folktronica. Through all those creative years he has worked with everyone, including Burial, Omar Souleyman, Steve Reid, Aphex Twin, Thom Yorke, Bicep, Explosions in the Sky, Super Furry Animals, Radiohead, Ellie Goulding, J Dilla, Lana Del Rey, Manic Street Preachers, Sia, Black Sabbath, Madvillain or Jamie xx. Award winning artist with such a rare approach and constant quality-bar rising mentality is extremely attractive for most of headhunters, but Four Tet refuses to play the mainstream fame game a long time before mainstream was even looking at that side. Number of released singles, eps and long albums is very close to unlimited, as well as side-projects or lesser known aliases. In the last month Kieran Hebden released his newest EP and exclusively for Hive Blockchain, we decided to provide you full specification of this self-released album below. I believe that picking up only one song, as an objective description of such a widely diversified musician, can more harmful for artist than difficult for a selector, that is the reason why we would like to encourage you to make your own research and share own gems. We ensure you that Four Tet has plenty of them, just begging to be discovered!
