Hopkins has been impressing audiences with his yearning brand of electronica for some time now. He's collaborated with Coldplay, Imogen Heap, King Creosote and, most crucially, Brian Eno – the ambient pioneer has earmarked Hopkins as a successor of sorts for some time now, and the pair released a collaborative album in 2010's Small Craft on a Milk Sea (also featuring Leo Abrahams). Hopkins has also become a renowned soundtracker: the Eno-Hopkins-Abrahams duo teamed up to score Peter Jackson's 2009 film The Lovely Bones, while Hopkins also took the reins on 2010's Monsters, eventually receiving an Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Score.
This year has seen Hopkins release Immunity, his fourth solo album and a powerful record that blends Hopkins' cinema-friendly approach with the stranger side of dance music. Leaving the slower atmospheric sounds from his previous albums, he delivered one of the strongest techno albums of the year - a powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dancefloor-focussed music Hopkins has ever made.
