Famed British producer Jon Hopkins, whose albums such as Immunity and Singularity are regarded as contemporary electronic music classics, will honour our 10th anniversary with an exclusive DJ set, the likes of which have previously wowed crowds at festivals such as Dimensions and Primavera Sound.
Jon Hopkins, the star producer, who has collaborated with Brian Eno, Imogen Heap, The Necks and Coldplay during his career and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2018, is one of the biggest names in contemporary electronic music – and one of those acts you repeatedly ask us to bring over. His lush, soothing arrangements easily transcend genres, and his pulsing beats and deep bass keep the dancefloor going tirelessly.
in 2018, Hopkins released his fifth album, Singularity, to universal acclaim, as befits the successor to the masterpiece Immunity, which climbed to the top of best-of-2013 charts all over the world. With his DJ set, a carefully curated selection of his own and others’ material, Hopkins has played the Boiler Room and at festivals such as Dekmantel, Dimensions and Primavera Sound. In September, he’ll keep us dancing late into the night as part of the celebration of our 10th anniversary.
We’ll warm up with sonic master Miha Šajina alias Shekuza, the keyboard player for the bands Moveknowledgement and EWOK, who nowadays spends most of his time on modular sound synthesis. His recently released debut De Sica is just the overture to his coming improvised performance in a hybrid merger with classical acoustic percussionist Marko Jugovic, with visual support by Lina Rica.
Tickets on sale online and at Eventim outlets.
Organisation: Kino Šiška. The event is part of the 10thanniversary celebration of Kino Šiška.
