Debut Album
"Upsyde Downe"
Peak Records (PR012)
March 2007

Following the recent psy-stomping-night-time spree with the releases of "Peakopath" and Yab Yum's debut album "Nocturnal Emissions", PEAK RECORDS is now on a mission to explore the chill side of the moon…and is proud to introduce artist and producer FLOOTING GROOVES with his debut album "UPSYDE DOWNE".

Ethnic-ambient-groovy-downtempo-psy-progressive-cyber-chill-floaty-flooty would be a few words to describe FLOOTING GROOVES' music…if only words were enough to describe sound! His trademark is the well-crafted combination of these different styles, producing tight, funky beats, with a silver flute free-floating and gliding on top.

“UPSYDE DOWNE” is a psychedelic odyssey that travels from the land of beatless chill all the way to planet prog, in 8 tracks. Intelligent, trippy and organic, FLOOTING GROOVES’ album is the offspring of hard work, art work and heart work!

The emphasis is on groovy, airborne, spacey sounds that make you feel good!

Artist profile

FLOOTING GROOVES is Pearce Van Der Merwe. Born in Cape Town in 1975, he grew up in South Africa and Italy, surrounded by music. Having a varied background ranging from classical to jazz, rock and related styles, he started playing flute after hearing Jethro Tull. Groups like Ozric Tentacles and Pink Floyd opened him up to Psychedelia and that's where his journey began!

A party in Amsterdam in 2000 changed the course of things forever, marking Pearce's introduction to the trance scene, with its addictive and infectious grooves! Another turning point was the meeting of like-minded musicians and beings Dan Symons (a.k.a Dymons) and Ajja Leu (one half of Yab Yum) who both played instruments and laptops. The initial meeting and jamming eventually led to Pearce moving to Switzerland to join The Peaking Goddess Collective (PGC): the organic chill and psy trance band formed in 2003 by Ajja, Dymons & Master Margherita, which combines laptops and synths with live instruments: Flute, Guitar, percussion, Bass & Fx.

After his beginnings with the PGC, where his flute found the perfect niche in which to evolve, he started to participate actively in the production of the collective's tracks. Soon, he was also producing music solo, finding his own sound and ultimately performing live: FLOOTING GROOVES! Ethnic, groovy, floaty and psychedelic, his music ranges from chill to airy progressive beats. His performances are always a success and music lovers greatly appreciate the sight of the live instrument fusing with machine production.

In the past two years, Pearce has performed live at a great deal of parties and festivals including the renowned Boom 2006 in Portugal and Soulclipse in Turkey, both with his FLOOTING GROOVES project and with The PGC. The trance caravan has taken him to South Africa, Switzerland, The Netherlands Portugal, England, France, Turkey, Ireland and Germany. And his 2007 agenda is filling up with new performances around the world.

Since 2004, FLOOTING GROOVES has released a number of tracks on Peak Records and Electric Dreams. He has contributed to virtually all the Peak Records releases with down tempo tracks for the chill compilations as well as chill intros and outros for the night-time compilations. More releases are to come!

2007 will be a busy year for FLOOTING GROOVES! He will be promoting "Upsyde Downe" his full-length debut album, as well as The Peaking Goddess Collective’s debut studio album, which is set for release in March 2007. May his trails be happy and fruitful, and may your trails cross his!
