As good for coming down as it is for coming up
Londoner Jon Hopkins is best known for his collaborative work with Brian Eno and Coldplay, but this is the fourth album of an impressive solo career that’s been bubbling away for more than a decade. Structured to resemble the peaks and troughs of an epic night out, the first half of ‘Immunity’ is a continuous build to the crunching nine-minute techno opus of ‘Collider’, before the second half winds down to the title track, which features the mollifying vocals of King Creosote, another frequent collaborator. ‘Immunity’ is expertly paced, and as good for coming down as it is for coming up.
