Jon Hopkins paints atmospheric soundscapes with a gentle brushing technique. In small things, he sees big things, and he usually doesn’t need more than a vision to be able to create grand musical pictures. His big break through came with the album Immunity released in 2013, where Hopkins crafted a gentle mix between ambient and pumping electronic music.
Jon Hopkins’ latest release – 2018’s Singularity – begins and ends on the same note: a universe beginning, expanding, and contracting towards the same infinitesimal point. Where Immunity 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. Expect an astounding experience when Hopkins takes the stage for a live set at Way Out West.
