Jon Hopkins

This man is a genius. He needs his own thread.

If you have not listened to this album, I suggest you do so NOW. RIGHT NOW. Click it!


I'm going to see him later on in July, too. He's playing with flume (meh) but it should be a good show. Super pumped.

Re: Jon Hopkins

Wow, just wow. Heard the name many times before but never bit the bullet.

I'm only a tad bit in but this is really good.

Thanks!

Like so good.

Re: Jon Hopkins

Damn. Just got to the 9 min mark and I'm about to take it all back.

Why Jon, why?

Yup, turning it off.

Sorry, I tried.

Re: Jon Hopkins

You know what I'm so undecided.

One min theres a really annoying growl bass and the next min theres something I really love.

Get that bass out of there man...please.

Edit: Ticking through, 30 min mark is remarkably beautiful. Stunning.

Edit II: 36 min mark, still holding strong.

Re: Jon Hopkins

i saw him open for Royksopp like 2 years ago, with most of this album, it was awesome. live edits too.

he also did a few soundscapes for Coldplay, which is what kind of put him in the spotlight

Jon Hopkins is fun, he has an even earlier ambient-ish album as well.

That gasmask had me utterly confused for a moment, but it turns out it is the ambient guy i was thinking of. Nice thread, and on that note im going to zone out to dronezone on somaFM, peace

I love that song. This one is from the same album but much quieter. I love the Reverb on this and how silent it gets. Beautiful!

Yeah, that second track is the worst on the album for me too. Glad you enjoyed it, I had a feeling you would!

Re: Jon Hopkins

At the moment this is one of my favorite tracks on Insides:


I think I just like the combination of those noisy/glitchy percussions, that nice dreamy piano and the reverb... again
