Jon Hopkins, Teebs
A composer of film scores, remixer and longtime collaborator with Brian Eno and Coldplay, East London's Jon Hopkins makes electronic music for — strange twist! — human beings. Hopkins has just released Immunity (Domino), which, a bit unlike his past, largely downtempo/ambient stuff, places the emphasis squarely on the dance, with epic blasts of throbbing beat and enveloping synths, wrapped around choice found-sound textures and more intimate episodes of pensive piano and baleful choral drones. It's Hopkins' great ear for warm, analog synth tones that might just make you want to curl up in a li'l ball right there on the dancefloor. Also L.A. hero Teebs, whose recent Estara album on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label is a superbly crafted slice of atmospheric hip-hop and much, much more.
