Jon Hopkins

United Kingdom

It’s thrilling to welcome back the genius that is JON HOPKINS. The highly accomplished English electronic producer and musician is five records deep, picking up a couple of Mercury Prize noms and collaborating with the likes of Brian Eno along the way. His new album Singularity (Domino Records) is a huge achievement, flowing seamlessly from rugged techno to transcendent choral music, from solo acoustic piano to psychedelic ambient. Where Immunity – his hypnotic breakthrough LP – charted the dark alternative reality of an epic night out, Singularity explores the dissonance between dystopian urbanity and the green forest. It is a journey that returns to where it began – from the opening note of foreboding to the final sound of acceptance.  His late night set will be unmissable.
