Since his exceptionally good 2013 record 'Immunity', which towed the line between beautiful ambient pieces and supercharged, mechanic sounding bangers, Jon Hopkins has been leaning more towards the ambient side of things with 2014’s 'Asleep Versions' helping that.
Hopkins carries this on with the latest installment in compilation series Late Night Tales which is due out on March 1st. The mix features heady, haunting sounds from Holy Other, Gold Panda and Four Tet as well as a whole host of other artists. It’s an ideal combination for late night, half-asleep listening sessions with headphones.
As in LNT tradition, there's an exclusive cover version by the artist on the compilation – this time, Hopkins covers Yeasayer's I Remember.
