ANNA & Jon Hopkins team up for fantastic “Deep In The Glowing Heart”


Jon Hopkins has revealed a stunning new collaboration with Brazilian techno producer ANNA. “Deep In The Glowing Heart (Night Version),” which evolved over a month-long trans-Atlantic collaborative process, feels like an explosive release of energy, inspired by Hopkins’ return to regular DJing this year. Both artists premiered early versions of this track to large crowds at their DJ sets around the world, including ANNA at Coachella and Hopkins at Fabric, and the Night Version is now widely available to hear for the first time.

I first came across ANNA’s music through her track Hidden Beauties, which I found myself playing in DJ sets all the time and always goes down so well. I then asked her to remix Singularity and the results were so amazing I was super keen to work with her again but in a more collaborative way, rather than just handing over stems. We went back and forth a lot and it flowed really well. I love how this one turned out, it’s such a meeting of our two styles. – Jon Hopkins

The original version of “Deep In The Glowing Heart” can be found on Jon Hopkins’ most recent studio album, Music For Psychedelic Therapy, which was released last November. When asked about the song, Hopkins stated that “music can cleanse you, music can guide you through.” The Night Version takes you on a very different journey.

It is a big honor to be able to create music together with Jon. His music is part of my daily life, part of my meditations, my long walks and contemplative moments. My remix for his track ‘Singularity’ had a huge impact on my career and getting to know Jon better since then, and collaborate on this version of DITGH, it feels like our relationship has come full circle! – ANNA

Music For Psychedelic Therapy was Hopkins’ first full-length release since the GRAMMY-nominated Singularity (2018) and Immunity (2013), and it was a departure in sound from those records; “an album with no beats, not one drum sound, something closer to a classical symphony than a dance/electronica record.

Along with festival appearances this summer, Jon Hopkins is pleased to present a number of special playback events featuring an immersive performance of Music For Psychedelic Therapy in its entirety. Having run several of these gatherings previously in London, Austin and Los Angeles, upcoming dates include Wilderness Festival and Ireland’s Body & Soul Festival.

Jon Hopkins recently composed the score for Unboxed Festival’s Dreammachine in 360 spatial sound. Similarly positioned to Hopkins most recent album, Dreammachine is a multi-sensory experience based on Brion Gysin’s original flicker device and aims to unlock the mind through lights and music.
