Jon Hopkins - Immunity

Released: 2013   fout melden
Essentials: 2013

Deze plaat is een masterclass in productie en sfeerzetting. Jon Hopkins maakt ambient soundscapes waarin hij samples gebruikt van Olympisch vuurwerk, het waarschuwingssignaal van een vrachtwagen die achteruit rijdt en water dat wegloopt in een afvoerbuis. En toch is dit geen muziek voor geluidsnerds, maar warme en emotioneel. Muziek waar je je eigen droomwereld bij mag fantaseren. (1)

A powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dancefloor-focussed music Hopkins has ever made, "Immunity" is about achieving euphoric states through music. Inspired by the arc of an epic night out, the album peaks with "Collider", a huge, apocalyptic, techno monster and dissolves with the quiet, heartbreakingly beautiful closer, "Immunity", a track featuring vocals from King Creosote which could sit comfortably alongside the gems of their Mercury-nominated collaboration, "Diamond Mine". Immunity is a confident, dramatic record defined by an acute sense of physicality and place.  It feels like the hypnotic accompaniment to a journey of creativity, a trip inside Hopkins’ mind, using analog synthesis alongside manipulations of physical, real-world sounds to make dance music that feels as natural and unforced as possible.
