Jon Hopkins – “Everything Connected”

English producer Jon Hopkins has released another animated music video in anticipation for his new album Singularity, and this time it’s a lot more abstract. In keeping with the similar trippy vibe of last month’s “Emerald Rush” video, his new song “Everything Connected” is a nearly six-minute electronic soundscape that takes you through the circle of life.

After launching his career playing keyboard for Imogen Heap, Hopkins broke through on his own with his 2013 atmospheric album Immunity. He also scored a production of Hamlet that starred Benedict Cumberbatch back in 2015. Weird but fitting!

As the video’s psychedelic visualizer starts, fractal, energetic shapes spin through space transforming into increasingly complex molecules of color. The peak of the evolutionary cycle forms this stealthily crawling jellyfish-type creature that pulses to the track’s experimental trance. As the beat drops and the bass kicks into overdrive, the visuals becomes more frenetic and explorative as if they are almost fighting back against their reversion. “Everything Connected” ends where it began. Watch it below.
