Jon Hopkins shares new video, Feel First Life

Taken from his critically acclaimed new album, Singularity, Jon Hopkins is very happy to share the video for ‘Feel First Life’. Featuring a meditative piano solo that morphs into a 15-part choir, ‘Feel First Life’ marks the mid-point and distinct change in pace of the album from the energetic into the transcendent. The video was directed by frequent collaborator Elliot Dear.

On the heels of a sold out coast-to-coast North American tour, Hopkins continues to dominate the live circuit with tour dates across the UK and Europe including 2 sold out dates at London’s Brixton Academy plus a very special show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire for War Child UK as part of their Learn to Live Campaign. A full list of dates can found below.

Praise for Singularity:

“His long standing enchantment with nature, electricity and mindfulness glimmers anew on Singularity” Q 4*
“One of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation.” New Yorker
“A sonic realization of a better world, conceived in the depths of psychedelic experimentation” MOJO 4*
“Pitched between heat-seeking acid house and ambient bliss, the techno auteur’s first album since 2013 is a beat-music odyssey that thrums with spiritual resonance” Pitchfork, Best New Music
“A beautiful bastard of a record” Mixmag 9/10
“Jon Hopkins knows how to fill a dance floor with techno that throbs insistently. But he’s also got a tremendous gift for the comedown; for warm, ambient baths of sound that slow the blood and settle the mind” NPR Music
“Hopkins remains in ascension and no one is on his level right now” CLASH 8/10
“Hopkins’ open-minded take on an altered state becomes an experience that reveals itself a little more with every glorious listen” Loud & Quiet 9/10
