Hear Four Tet and Floating Points’ 6-hour set from Plastic People’s closing night

Much to the dismay of both dancers and DJs everywhere, world-renowned club Plastic People shut its doors for good just three days ago after owners announced that “the time felt right to move on.”

In its 20 years, the London-based institution played host to many seminal club nights, including the bass-bringing FWD>>, where dubstep was molded. To pay tribute to the “smokey loud beautiful box,” as one Resident Advisor user put it, Four Tet and Floating Points – both club residents who performed at Plastic People’s ‘Last Dance’ on January 2 – have shared their entire six-hour set from the night on Soundcloud.

Accompanying the set was a note from the pair about the iconic club. “To say this space…was fundamental in our personal musical formation would be a complete understatement,” they wrote. They go on to describe the make-up of their extended set, where they took turns by playing two records apiece and included music “made with that place in mind,” such as Daphni’s (aka Caribou) Ye Ye, Four Tet’s Pinnacles and Floating Points’ Vacuum EP. In all, it’s a six-hour swan song that’s as moving emotionally as it is physically on the dancefloor.
