Jon Hopkins is one of those artists whose music is hard to define. It’s otherworldly and complex, sometimes aggressive but often placid, even meditative. Now, five years since his last proper album Immunity was released, there’s something new coming.
I’m so happy to share some brand new music with you. There is much more news to come soon, but this is where it begins.
If you can, please watch in HD, with full screen and on headphones.
The track features his signature driving base sound with a wavey rhythm of synths hovering above it. It feels like Hopkins this time around is in a peaceful, sort of meditative state in his life. And I might be crazy, but at around the :52 mark, does it sound like some signature Thom Yorke warbles thrown in there? I would absolutely love a Jon Hopkins and Thom Yorke duet!
