Having claimed that he likes to make music that takes the listener into another world, Jon Hopkins certainly doesn’t disappoint.
His recent remix of Disclosure’s ‘Magnets’ surges with an electronic melody that makes use of every element. Every little bit counts as the track lifts you off your feet, developing into an ethereal state – sticking true to his style, Hopkins transforms ‘Magnets’ into a journey that just keeps going.
The flow is so smooth that you could listen to this track on repeat seamlessly and barely notice how many times it has come back around. Of course, we can’t ignore the thick bassline; the raw grit makes you bite your lip while it gives the track a strength that you never even realised it was missing. It draws us in for the ride as Hopkins continues to make everything he touches turn to gold.
