After selling out Village Underground and KOKO in quick succession and both a month prior to the show dates, Jon Hopkins has announced a further London date at the Forum in Kentish Town, answering his fans call for him to perform again. Jon is working on a very special production exclusive to this show and fans will also be excited to hear, they will be treated to a very special lineup- dj sets from Daphni, Objekt and a live set by Luke Abbott, will make this an unforgettable night!
Hopkins launched his new and highly anticipated LP Immunity a powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dance floor-focussed music he has ever made, in June 2013 receiving worldwide critical acclaim. Inspired by the arc of an epic night out, the album peaks with Collider, a huge, apocalyptic, techno monster and dissolves with the quiet, heartbreakingly beautiful closer, Immunity. Jon has since received his second Mercury Nomination and announced his new soundtrack score for Kevin Macdonald’s beautifully dark new film How I Live Now.
‘a delicate beauty’ – Guardian
‘Immunity is a journey to be savoured’ – Resident Advisor
‘remarkably visceral, sensual, confident electronic record’ – pitchfork
Dan Snaith as Daphni reaches out for a more feminine, fluid energy, and seeks instant gratification. Inspired to work in a completely different way – setting aside the meticulous compositional rigours and musical layers underpinning Caribou songs.
Drawing influences from dubstep, techno, house, drum ‘n’ bass, and more, Objekt’s music is the most thrilling kind of hybrid—restless and irreverent, yet remarkably focused in its pursuit of the groove.
Luke Abbott is no stranger to the live circuit, and has recently adapted his analogue-heavy home set-up into a mobile club-friendly set of dance music in the loosest possible sense to help drag dancefloors (and beyond) kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
