Open Eye Signal is the new single from Jon Hopkins, and the first taken from forthcoming LP, Immunity (released on June 3rd 2013 in the UK, June 4th in the US). Open Eye Signal will also be released on June 3rd and will feature remixes from Happa, Lord of the Isles, Luke Abbott and Nosaj Thing.
The video for Open Eye Signal was filmed by Aoife McArdle in California: "The track is really special. I saw it as a singular, hypnotic journey that's almost endless. You get lost in it. I liked the idea of a city kid taking us on that journey... just one day suddenly deciding to escape his life and see more of the world in the only way he understands...via skateboard.".
Immunity is a confident, dramatic record, defined by an acute sense of physicality and place and inspired by the arc of an epic night out.?It feels like the hypnotic accompaniment to a journey of creativity, a trip inside Hopkins' mind, using analog synthesis alongside manipulations of physical, real-world sounds to make dance music that feels as natural and unforced as possible.
Jon Hopkins will be performing a headline album launch show at London's Village Underground on 12th June.
Exclusive digital bundles of Open Eye Signal remixes will be available from 29th April, with a white label vinyl available from May 20th.
