Biography

Jon Hopkins is an electronic producer who meticulously constructs lush arrangements, blending digital beats and soothing ambience. His unique, hypnotic style made him a sought-after producer in the pop world, and earned him credits on albums by Coldplay, Massive Attack, Brian Eno, and Herbie Hancock in the late 2000s. Starting out as a gifted child pianist, in his teen years he became interested in synthesized sounds and started making acid house and drum'n'bass on a four-track recorder using computer software. He signed to Just Music at the ripe age of 19 in 2001, and recorded his debut album, Opalescent, while working part-time as a studio session musician in Wembley. His next album, 2004's Contact Note, was slightly more cinematic in nature and gained the respect of Brian Eno, who recruited Hopkins to play keys on his 2005 comeback album, Another Day on Earth. Through Eno, Hopkins began working on Coldplay's Viva la Vida as a co-producer before he returned to his solo career to complete his 2009 album, Insides. In 2011, he collaborated with Scotland's King Creosote on the largely acoustic Diamond Mine, a set of songs that influenced Hopkins' second album, Immunity, which split the difference between energetic dance music and more reflective songs. Asleep Versions followed in 2014 with tranquil and vocal-heavy versions of tracks from Immunity. A volume for the LateNightTales mix series was released in 2015.
