Jon Hopkins releasing ‘Asleep Versions’ EP, touring, playing FIXED 10th Anniversary in NYC (dates, streams)
Jon Hopkins has a new EP, titled Asleep Versions, which will be out via Domino on November 11. As the title implies, it four somnambulistic versions of songs from last year's acclaimed Immunity. These aren't remixes, though, they were recorded this year at Sundlaugin Studios near Reykjavik, Iceland and the tracks form a continuous 25-minute work intended to be listened to as a whole. (Or split across two sides in the case of the vinyl 12".) EP highlight "Form By Firelight" was rerecorded with vocals by Raphaelle Standell of Braids/Blue Hawaii. (Past collaborator King Creosote sings on one too.) You can stream "Form By Firelight" and check out a trailer for the EP below.
Last in NYC over the summer, Hopkins will be back next month to play FIXED's 10th Anniversary Party which happens at Output on November 21 which also features resident DJs JDH & Dave P, as well as Marcus Worgull, Alex From Tokyo, and Paul Raffaele in the club's adjacent Panther Room. Tickets are on sale now.
