Londoner Jon Hopkins, 24, follows up is genre defining 2001 debut, Opalescentâ, with the release of his new album âContact Noteâ in August 2004 through One World Music. This exciting exploration into delicate, melodic electronica confirms Planet Mixologyâs 2001 prediction that Jon is âa genius in the makingâ. This new album will no doubt confirm that the genius is now made.
With 12 fresh new cuts âContact Noteâ delivers intricate beat patterns, driving basslines, guitar riffs, waving synths and ethereal vocals. Lushly produced and pristinely mixed âContact Noteâ gives an instant appeal to Jonâs music, from the intense âCircleâ, the infectious âSymmetryâ and â100â drenched in beautiful vintage techno effects, to the melancholic piano of âSearchlightâ and the crystalline acoustic guitar of âGlasstopâ.
Drawing on his time as a graduate from The Royal College of Music and collaborations with such musical luminaries as Brian Eno and Jeff Beck, Jon has delved further into his intense brand of epic electroinca and produced an album divided into three distinct movements. âContact Noteâ slowly evolves into a deep, compelling musical experience concluding with the stunning third part where he masters to perfection his skills as a classically trained musician, to give his most abstract work delicate impressionist touches.
