I first discovered Jon's music a couple of years ago and, like many, was enamoured by Opalescent. It was melodic and ethereal without being 'new age', and struck a great balance between emotion and electronics. Likewise with Contact Note, which I saw as a decent step forward for Jon's sound. When Insides hit in 2009, I was at first shocked by the harder-hitting more industrial sound but soon fell in love with that album too (particularly Light Through the Veins which I play almost daily on my commute).

So here we are in 2013, and Immunity is finally upon us. I've read a few customer reviews and some seem disappointed by Jon's slightly 'glitchier' sound, but I personally see this as a huge step forward. Rather than being synthetic and false-sounding like some downtempo artists, Jon uses real-world sounds to create a far more organic feeling that permeates the disc. Tracks like 'Open Eye Signal' and 'Sun Harmonics' benefit from these inclusions. Additionally we're treated to Jon's masterful use of the piano, and the closer - 'Immunity' - is now firmly one of my favourite Hopkins tracks. Sure, it's a slow burner, but this is music that's meant to be listened to more than once; it's an album you really need to immerse yourself in. One listen just won't cut it.

If you're still on the fence about Immunity, I urge you to spin it a few more times before casting judgement. It's a journey that may take a while to get underway, but once it does, it's one you'll want to take again and again.

Top-notch stuff, Jon; long may it continue.

Wow this guy sure knows how to move you very emotional album up there with the likes of Burial, scratchy glitch breaks and warping techno. My fav track has to be Open Eye Signal has amazing soundscapes and the last two minutes he brings the funkiness in. Bought it on iTunes though £4.99. This guy is someone to look out for well worth a listen.

Music
There seem to be two periods that Hopkin's solo albums fall into; "Opalescent" and "Contact Note" are the first pair and shimmer with an elegiac beauty that transcends nearly all other electronica. Hopkins was reputedly disenchanted with the lukewarm response to these works and responded with 2009's "Insides" and this latest "Immunity" this year (2013). Both are harder sounding, crunchy, and superficially more edgy than the warm and immersive comfort of the first two. "Immunity" is a superb album, rhythmically intricate, sparse at times, but always underpinned by a classical sensibility that comes through with the use of piano and poignant melodies. This is no Basic Channel: this is the sound of a fantastic British artist producing wonderful music that is staggering under-recognised.

Sound
Heard through dCS/Bryston/ATC, this is an extremely clean, dynamic and sharply etched modern recording, full of spatial and textural detail, but never sounding coarse or uncomfortable. There is little musical hyperbole with loads of low frequency speaker-stretching, but not so crude as to become comic. This is a wonderfully subtle and maturely recorded electronica album, with plenty of contrast in the mix. Overall levels have not compressed things too much so there's a good dynamic range to be heard. A great system test if you're into that kind of thing.....

Such is the top quality of Immunity that I ended up purchasing his back catalogue too and I now have over 3.5 hours of quality, interesting, changing music on repeat!
Immunity opening reminds me of Burial but then it soon becomes a happier version of Burial. The other albums are down differing roads but all amazing too.
It seems Jon Hopkins is another of the UK's hidden geniuses. Perhaps he would like to keep it that way though?

'Immunity' is a massive step forwards for the talented musician and producer Jon Hopkins, bringing togeather myriad strains of his work in cinema soundtracks, production on other excellent albums and his own detailed yet melodic style of electronic music. There is variety here that is a joy to discover, with certain tracks proving to be harsh and unforgiving and others sublimely smooth and gentle. This album is a masterful sonic journey and will be a favourite for many years!

Heard this being played on ujima radio, Bristol based cultural roots radio station and took a chance, very glad I did. It's hard to genre it but it's slightly techno, not dub but is an interesting mix of everyday sounds synthesised to create a very calming effect. Excellent bed time listening...

This has to be album of the year without doubt...

Great on first listen but more you play it, the better it gets.

An electronic masterpiece.

When I first heard Hopkins's earlier album Contact Note (2004) there was almost something prescient that he would garner critical acclaim; his music had a nascent technical artistry that captured the early noughties avant garde zeitgeist. Two UK Mercury Prize nominations later, one in collaboration, it can be safely said that this boy wonder is starting to receive some recognition.

As an opening track 'We Disappear', with its Autechre like drum patterning sequences, rolls on thick the trademark drum squelches in a four-four to the floor techno rhythm and foreboding synth lead before segueing effortlessly into one of the stunning tracks on the album called 'Open Eye Signal' which is 7 minutes and 48 seconds of squelch apotheosis constructed around a motoric beat of the Krautrock school. According to a Guardian paper review it took 6 weeks of incessant sculpturing to perfect the bass into the sexiest darkest anthemic line to ever graced any hi-fi of mine, and that the inestimable Trentemoller might tickle for. Hopkins's suite of Kaoss pads pour forth a left-field riot adding loads of effected textures and filter manipulations to "totilate" (omnipresent saturate) the listener's senses. This is the consummate live DJ mixing musical ideas on the fly but with all the control of detail you might find in a GANNT chart - see the set of 'Open Eye Signal' (Live on KEXP) at [...]

Next on the T-table of dark techno is a track calked 'Breathe This Air' which showcases sparse reverb sound effected punctuations of lingering piano notes and petite explosions while the heavily processed drums merge with a shifting transposed bass figure.
