The distinguished personality of the world’s electronic scene, Jon Hopkins, returns to Prague after five years, presenting his current album Singularity. The intimate and splintering electronics from the previous album, Immunity, which won Hopkins the second nomination for the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2013, moved even further. Hopkins’ experimentation with the states of trance and meditation gave the new album an emotional honesty.
The playful electronics of the Indian Wells project, behind which stands the Italian producer Pietro Ianuzzi, link the elements of ambient, glitch and abstract music or experimental techno. He already created three albums and his last achievement Where the World Ends was released last year by L.A. Friends of Friends label together with his latest EP Phase Transition. Bratři (in English, Brothers), a rising star of the Prague electronic scene, will present their set on the border between techno and experimental electronics, complemented by live drums. Their debut EP Monster was released in 2017.
