Tickets are still available to see Jon Hopkins at Oxford Art Factory on Saturday December 14.

Hopkins is responsible for one of the most acclaimed albums of 2013 in Immunity, which elevated the English producer from the ‘underappreciated’ status he had been stuck with for a number of years, despite releasing excellent solo albums such as Insides and a Mercury Prize nomination for 2011’s Diamond Mine with King Creosote.

It was the release of single ‘Open Eye Signal’ earlier this year that set the stage for Hopkins’ ascension, with the likes of Apparat playing the track to raucous responses well before its release date, and setting the stage for Immunity to reach a broad cross-section of listeners.

Hopkins has since cemented his shift towards more robust dancefloor-orientated sounds with sets at Boiler Room and Berghain, demonstrating that he should not be stereotyped as a ‘chill-out’ producer.
