'Late Night Tales - Jon Hopkins'

With interests spanning from left field classical composition to equally left field techno, Jon Hopkins is a difficult artist to pin down.

So when the producer was invited to curate a mix for Late Night Tales, what followed was quite unique. The mix is due to be released on March 1st, and it’s a gorgeous – at times beat-less – exposition of poise and texture.

Jon Hopkins: "Putting this album together was a unique opportunity for me to present music that I have been listening to for years, free from the constraints of a club setting or from trying to stick to one genre. I chose tracks not just because they have been important to me but because of how they sit together, putting as much thought into the transitions and overall narrative as I did into the track choices.”

“I mixed by key and by texture more than anything else, using original sound design, pivot notes, and often recording new synth or piano parts to link things together in a way that flows as naturally as possible. I hope you enjoy it.”
