Jon Hopkins came to the attention of many when his track 'Light Through the Veins' formed the basis of 'Life in Technicolour' by Coldplay in 2008. Over the past few years, Jon has had the opportunity to work on and off stage with all sorts of high profile musicians including Brian Eno with whom he co-wrote and co-performed Brian Eno's new album Small Craft on a Milk Sea, released on Warp Records in late 2010.
On stage, his own performances are often coupled with extraordinary VJ sets reveal the talent of being able to lure an audience from listening to accessible, classical piano melodies through to the outer limits of experimental, industrial electronic beats. This versitility has enabled Jon to work on sound design for countless advertising campaigns such as RKCR/Y&Rs 'Breathe' fire safety campaign directed by Dougal Wilson (Blink),Honda CR-Z directed by Frank Budgen. His reliable work ethic has made him a popular music provider in this field. Jon has recently completed soundtrack scores for two feature films (to be announced).
FILM / THEATRE SCORES:
2008 Entity (Wayne McGregor) – Random Dance group - performed live at Sadler's Wells.
2009 - Lovely Bones directed by Peter Jackson (co-write between Hopkins, Eno and Leo Abrahams)
Introducing the long-lasting 2017 Subaru Impreza. Kids grow up in the blink of an eye. Every parent knows how true that is. One minute, they’re toddlers running around the backyard, and then, suddenly, they’re all grown up. In this commercial, we see the story of a little boy who’s grown up too fast, the parents who watched it happen, and the car that’s been there for them all along.
When West Country feedback merchant Dave Pearce's Flying Saucer Attack resurfaced in 2015 with his first new music in more than a decade, it provided the ideal opportunity to introduce his out-of-print back catalogue to a whole new audience. Following the excitement generated by the re-release of Further, Chorus and Distance last year, Domino are reissuing three more of his peerless early works – the self-titled debut, New Lands and Mirror.
Tamsin Wilson and her band, aptly called Wilsen, are gearing up to release their long-awaited debut album ‘I Go Missing In My Sleep’ via Secret City.
They’ve now shared their latest taste of the album ‘Heavy Steps’. On it, Tamsin’s voice drifts across soothing, folk-infused guitar melodies, a light smattering of piano, sweeps of strings and even waves of soothing synths. It sounds like there’s a lot going on, but it’s all handled with light enough touch that it all seems effortlessly elegant. Tamsin told NPR that the track is “a reminder to look ahead, because sometimes it’s all too easy to do the opposite.” This track certainly makes you look forward to that upcoming debut LP.
Wilsen recorded the LP in upstate New York and at The Farm Studio, located just outside of Philadelphia, with producer Ben Baptie.
The Kills – Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince - are pleased to share a brand new video for ‘Whirling Eye’, off 2016’s album Ash & Ice. The video, helmed by award-winning video director Sophie Muller, a longtime collaborator of the band, was shot at several locations in Los Angeles using the Omni, GoPro’s synchronized 6-camera array for VR, and can be viewed above.
