Listen To Jon Hopkins' New Album, Immunity, Via NPR Music

The first sound on Immunity is that of a key turning, unlocking the door into Jon Hopkins' East London studio. It's followed by the noise of the door slamming, then footsteps, and then finally the crisp, clipping rhythms and pulsating bass of "We Disappear" emerge. So begins a confident, dramatic record defined by an acute sense of physicality and place; a bold statement after the quiet, intimate Diamond Mine, his Mercury-nominated 2011 collaboration with King Creosote.

From the moment you hear that key turn in the lock, Immunity announces itself as a powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most dance-focused music Hopkins has ever made. Inspired by the arc of an epic night out, 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 and unforced as possible. Listen to Immunity in its entirety now via NPR Music's "First Listen" series.

Jon Hopkins will play his first headlining show in New York on Tue. June 4th at Glasslands, and he'll return to New York in August for the PS1 Warm Up Series.
