Jon Hopkins Announces Tour, Purity Ring Remix
It’s been a busy few months for Jon Hopkins surrounding the release of his album Immunity, out last month via Domino Records. Immunity has proven to be the boldest and most dance-focused music he has ever created. It’s a dramatic, and multi-faceted 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 as possible.
Following his record release show (his first headlining show in New York), Hopkins returns to North America in August to play shows including, PS1 Warmup in New York, a Montreal gig with Moderat, and two shows at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles with Purity Ring. A full list of dates is below. These LA shows continue Purity Ring and Hopkins’ mutual admiration and enduring creative relationship — Hopkins mixed Purity Ring’s “Saltkin” and recently remixed the song, “Amenamy,” both tracks from their album, Shrines, and in turn, Purity Ring’s Megan James has added vocals to Immunity‘s “Breathe This Air,” a new version of which will be released later this summer.
