    Jon Hopkins has released another track from the forthcoming Singularity album. I've heard this a few times live and like a lot of his work it's both banging and meditative.

    The full, magisterial, epic, near eleven minutes is on Spotify:

    https://open.spotify.com/album/2V7WzvwI73Z1wyjvQvuZUZ

    TL;DL don't do Spotify? There's a five minute edit here with a lovely visualiser:



    Can't wait for the album in May and to see him live at The Albert Hall in Manchester in November.

    Anybody else going to see the tour?
    OMFG my jaws hurt. That was amazing

    New Orbital album is out. Monsters Exist.

    Best album in years although there is 1 duffer in there. Quite different from other stuff they have done. Some of these will be fantastic live.

    @BinaryBob101 Cheers!

    I found this set from Glastonbury and even put some time into downlaoding it via plug ins and firefox.

    Really good stuff. Kind of wish I couldn't hear the audience.

    Man, forgot how good Light through the veins is. That Glasto set at that part is just...y'know?

    That Coldplay (really?) bit is just gutpunchingly good. 54:08 and on a bit is more than I would have been able to handle back in my clubbing days. Just sensational.

    Just catching up on that jon hopkins set wonderful, think I'll follow it up with the Underworld 2016 set.

    My current listening habits below, I'm not not a at the forefront of this scene but certainly like it, anyone got any good tips for new listening similar to these?

    Jon Hopkins
    George Fitzgerald
    Jamie XX
    Hookworms (not necessarily in this category but wonderful album)
    Sylvan Esso
    all of LCD

    @PatrickEwing try burial.

    Not upbeat but fantastic none the less. I also like Jamie xx so there's a chance you'll like Burial.

    @PatrickEwing Have a crack at some of Moderat's stuff. Maybe Stefan Bodzin - his Boiler Room set is damn good. You might like some of Bicep's last album.

    I've got a few more, but gone blank for the moment!

    OH! Shoutout to DJ Koze - probably my album of the summer (Singularity is probably my album of the year so far). It's by turns melancholy, hilarious, uplifting and chilled out, fucking great stuff.

    Going to see Hopkins live in November at the Manchester Albert Hall, which is a stunning venue. Part of the Warehouse Project, it's gonna be a big night.

    Cheers chaps, just catching up on your replies, i'll do some listening to those you mention.

    Good one on Jon Hopkins tickets. I do need to get to the Albert Hall, I missed out on Gomez there. Love that size venue, similar to the the Ritz and also Gorilla. I'm going to Hookworms at the Ritz in November, can't wait.

    Haven't the Albert Hall tickets for Jon Hopkins been sold out for months?

    I tried to get hold of some ages ago. 😞

    The Carpenter Brut show last night was quality. Everyone knew the lyrics and went mad during Beware the Beast and Maniac. Also the first CB show I'd been to with a mosh pit.

    This is not one for folks who think Jon Hopkins is boring. I like it though.

    (It kicks in a bit around the minute mark...)

    @Technoishmatt I like CB as much as the next guy, but less energy doesn't equal boring. I'd argue there's more going on in your average JH track, it's just a different mood.

    I like slower more minimal stuff fine. But that JH stuff sounded like somebody got stuck at a full moon party in Thailand a decade ago and was being haunted by the music.

    If they had had music like whatever it is JH plays around the 53 minute mark in this mix I'd never had left the island.

    Fucking hell. Headsplosion

    Maybe the appeal is for old farts like me.(come to think of it... it was nearly two decades since I went to Thailand)

    Late to the party but after finding his previous albums a bit hit and miss Singularity is a bit fucking special.

    Singularity is good, although I do prefer the shorter edits of some of the songs on it. A bit punchier.

    I've been listening to a lot of Throwing Snow recently. Avarice is a great headphone tester.

    May not be to everyone's taste ;) but the new Celldweller album, Remixed Upon a Blackstar, has some great remixes on there. The remix of The Seven Sisters by Voicians and Fury Weekends remix of The Lucky One being faves of mine.

    I rather like the Brainfeeder X album

    It introduced me to Ross from Friends, too.

    Max Cooper's A Hundred Billion Sparks is not shit.

    Standout tracks probably aren't representative of the whole album, but Phi and Identity are great.

    First time on the decks since I was 19. It shows here and there, but there's a few tracks some of you EGers quite like here. Some of the EQ is a bit heavy handed and there's a duff mix or two, but just thought I'd share for the weekend. I hope it's a little better than Steffenson:

    DAMONF - 4LADYF on Soundcloud.

    TRACKLIST:

    Alan Watts - Time The Social Institution
    Weval - It'll Be Just Fine
    Weval - You Made It (Part 2)
    Britney Spears - Breathe On Me (James Holden Vocal)
    James Holden - 10101
    Rival Consoles - Hidden
    Max Cooper - Phi
    Max Cooper - Identity
    Bicep - Glue
    Jamie xx - Gosh
    Bicep - Just
    Luminous Time - Jon Jopkins/Alan Watts

    I played about with Jon Hopkins Luminous Beings a little, with inspiration from Alan Watts an Eastern Philosopher commenting on Time, The Social Institution. V2.0 worked out better.
