EDITORS’ NOTES

Building on his background as a classical pianist and composer, Surrey producer Jon Hopkins uses vast electronic soundscapes to explore other worlds. Here, on his fifth album, he contemplates our own. Inspired by adventures with meditation and psychedelics, Singularity aims to evoke the magical awe of heightened consciousness. It’s a theme that could easily feel affected or clichéd, but Hopkins does it phenomenal justice with imaginative, mind-bending songs that feel both spontaneous and rigorously structured. Floating from industrial, polyrhythmic techno (“Emerald Rush") to celestial, ambient atmospheres (“Feel First Life”), it’s a transcendent headphone vision quest you’ll want to go on again.

I hope it grows on me (IT DID!)

I'm a huge fan but this album is so "flat". I hope after a few listens it grows on me because, at the moment, it is average and I expected it to be amazing. (NOT FLAT. DEFINITE GROWER. A BRILLIANT ALBUM!)
