Event: Jon Hopkins with Clark, Nathan Fake
Date: November 30, 2013
83. This show marks the 83rd show I’ve attended this year (and yes, it’s still counting), and man, I don’t think I will ever get tired. Ending his North American tour at the Echoplex, Jon Hopkins brings forth a killer performance that transforms the venue into a trance-like atmosphere of pulsating beats and mesmerizing melodies. With his forth album and Mercury Prize nominee Immunity, he took the audience through a tantalizing journey building layers of anticipation and dropping the climax that dug in deeper than our listening senses. The crowd was great, packed the house, and let Hopkins take control. One of the better show experiences I’ve had in a while. Better not miss this amazing British producer next time he’s in town!
