We're kind of excited about this one. Our latest Bestimix is a wee bit special, compiled by one of Britain's best new young producers, singularly talented musicians and all-round good egg, Jon Hopkins. A long-time collaborator with Brian Eno, Jon has remixed the likes of Four Tet and Wild Beasts, composed a score for Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, opened for Coldplay and created an album of restlessly experimental electronic music for Domino (phew!). So for a chap with such broad tastes perhaps the genre-straddling nature of this mix isn't surprising; it is, however, thrilling - a wide-eyed trip through Boards of Canada's uneasy ambience to Modeselektor's viciously dumb electro and Glasser's glacial pop beauty. Enjoy!
