Jon Hopkins helmed the Essential Mix over the weekend with a two-hour mix that traversed a landscape of ambient, melodic electronica and techno.
"It feels amazing to be part of a mix series that has been going for 20 years, and to join a line up that has included so many people whose music i admire," he said of the mix. "I put a lot of work into this, trying to showcase the tracks that have influenced my recent album and live shows, and trying to build a real musical structure and journey over the 2 hours. I really hope everyone enjoys it."
The mix features an unreleased track from the UK producer, 'Interlude', as well as cuts from Clark, Panda Bear, James Holden, Joy Orbison and Seefeel.
Hopkins will be heading to Australia in February for the Laneway Festival in February, but not before visiting NYC, South Africa and New Zealand. See tour dates below.
