A Soundtrack for Spiritual Awakening

Jon Hopkins makes gentle music with hidden depths.

Celebrated music writer Kelefa Sanneh reviews Jon Hopkins new album Singularity for the New Yorker. Mr. Hopkins was the first artist we collaborated on bringing to Boston five years ago.

[Singularity] is both the gentlest and the most epic of Hopkins’s career. — Kelefa Sanneh

Sanneh talks about Hopkins‘ early on being “seduced by the Roland TB-303,” how Singularity signaled his transition from Logic into Ableton, and which Spotify playlists he comes up on.

As an inspiration for our school, and for many of our students, Hopkins’ release is something to celebrate to be sure. After the 6 years and 7 months (!!) since we brought the acclaimed producer to Great Scott, we’re happy to see him remain

one of the most celebrated musicians of his generation

and be

one of music’s great minds operating in peak form.
