Jon Hopkins Essential Mix

After a fairly big weekend that saw us take in Hyde’s 1st birthday party at the brilliant Oval Space on Saturday night, we’re in need of a something to zone out to today. Luckily for us, and you if you’re taking a similarly tentative approach to this Monday, composer/producer/performer/DJ extraordinaire Jon Hopkins was on the Essential Mix on Friday night.

It’s a superb selection, that includes some brilliant tracks from Daniel Avery, Recondite, James Holden and this stunning Moderat remix of Hopkins’ ‘Abandon Window’.

Daniel Avery – Knowing You’ll Be Here (KiNK Remix)

Daniel Avery is a pretty big deal nowadays. There are many standout moments on his debut album ‘Drone Logic’ – the opening track ‘Water Jump’ and the title track are just two. But our personal favourite is the album’s concluding tune, ‘Knowing We’ll Be Here’, an epic track that reminds us of The Chemical Brothers at their festival-dominating best.

Now, Bulgarian producer KiNK has done a remix job on it, and absolutely smashed it out the park. There’s no two ways about it really: this will be one of the tracks of the summer in our eyes.

Out on various formats through the month of June. If you’re one of our readers from North America, go and see Daniel Avery whilst you can. His tour there runs until the end of May. We saw him on NYE and we can’t recommend it enough.
