:: Can’t get enough of this!
With Immunity, Jon Hopkins released one of the finest electronic records of last year. Now, the London-based producer has released an EP featuring fabulous alternate, more ethereal versions of four of the Immunity’s tracks.
Asleep Versions was released on November 10, 2014 via Domino Recording Co. The EP of four tracks is available as digital download (mp3/16-bit wav+flac/24-bit wav), CD and 12″ vinyl EP. Additionally, Hopkins 2013 album Immunity is re-released as a 2-CD edition featuring Asleep Versions as second disc. You can order your copy of Asleep Versions in all possible formats from Bleep.
The new version of album title track Immunity features Scottish singer/songwriter Kenny Anderson whom you might know better by his stage name King Creosote. It’s my clear favourite track from the EP, listen above. The Asleep Version of Form By Firelight features BRAIDS singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston, check it out below.
