REVIEW: JON HOPKINS –Singularity / domino

Review by DEN MARTELO (IT’S JUST MUZIK / YouFM)

Il y a 5 ans, juste avant la sortie d’Immunity acclamé par la critique, Jon Hopkins avait pensé arrêter s’il n’obtenait pas la reconnaissance tant attendue. Il faut dire qu’avant cela, alors qu’il détenait déjà 3 albums au compteur, la sauce n’arrivait guère à prendre, et ce malgré le soutien d’artistes comme Brian Eno ou Coldplay pour qui il réalisa notamment Life in Technicolor sur l’album Viva La Vida. Les temps ont bien changés depuis 2013.

Pour son nouvel opus, l’anglais aura donc pris le temps, notamment dans sa conceptualisation qui a pris forme déjà il y a plusieurs années, en Californie, où il disposait de plus d’espaces naturels inspirants que dans sa capitale londonienne. Cela s’est ensuite poursuivi avec des expérimentations psychédéliques aux Pays-Bas, et cela se ressent dans l’entièreté de son album. En effet, et il ne s’en cache pas, Jon Hopkins a vécu des expériences sous champis hallucinogènes, encadré par un thérapeute, ce qui est légal chez nos voisins. Singularity est donc (en partie) une retranscription sonore de ces expériences (la pochette est d’ailleurs une représentation de la molécule psychotrope présente dans les champis). Attention, toi le producteur en herbe, je te vois déjà venir… la drogue, c’est mal !

 

Musicalement, Singularity est un voyage initiatique electronica-techno extraordinaire ;  Emerald Rush, le 1er single, avait déjà prouvé que le travail d’orfèvre du gaillard n’avait rien perdu de sa superbe. L’ouverture éponyme est anxieuse mais soutenue, à la manière de Rone, alors que les beats syncopés plus puissants sur Neon Pattern Drum s’approchent plus d’un son à la Moderat. Et puis arrive la tuerie : Everything Connected. Vous avez déjà vu ces vidéos accélérées de nuages qui défilent comme si vous étiez pourvus d’ailes et que vous voliez dans les airs ? C’est exactement ce que l’on ressent en écoutant ce chef d’œuvre !

Une autre particularité des albums de Jon Hopkins est de proposer des tracks plus techno dans la 1ère moitié, et de redescendre dans un style plus ambient ou contemplatif (sans jamais être chiant) comme s’il nous disait : « c’est bon, maintenant, tu as mérité de te reposer ». Feel First life te reconnecte alors avec la réalité. Une personne de son entourage a d’ailleurs inspiré ce titre car il donne l’impression des premiers ressentis du mouvement d’un bébé à l’intérieur du ventre de sa future maman. Un dernier soubresaut intitulé Luminous Beings t’emmène vers les notes apaisantes de Recovery qui referme ce que l’on peut déjà désigner comme un des meilleurs albums de ce 1er semestre. Si la perfection n’existe pas, Jon Hopkins s’en approche par contre très près…

NOTE : 4,5/5

STYLE :  Techno, electronica, ambient.

  1. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

  2. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  3. Ellanse洢蓮絲(依戀詩)是一款荷蘭與英國共同研發的的新型真皮填充劑,是由30的25-50微米(µm)的聚己內酯(polycaprolactone, PCL)完美微型正圓晶球,以及70的PBS-生物降解材料(carboxymethylcellulose, CMC)製成的凝膠體,這些成分都是通過FDA(美國食品藥品監督管理局)和歐洲CE認證的安全成分,在人體內水分和二氧化碳作用下可以完全被分解吸收和排出的安全物質,對人體不會產生過敏反應,因此治療前不需經過敏檢測,在使用上幾乎不產生副作用。

  4. Dysport是A型肉毒桿菌素,為英國一所受嚴格監管的藥廠內透過高科技純化程序提煉的蛋白質。 Dysport更獲美國食品及藥物管理局FDA核准用於美容用途,肯定其效果及安全性。其能有效阻隔神經訊息傳達,令肌肉不受神經控制,減退因肌肉而過度收縮引致的面部動態性皺紋及放鬆過度活躍的肌肉,以達到瘦面、瘦小腿效果;亦能抑制汗腺掛汗的神經系統,有效減少汗水分泌,達到止汗​​及減少異味。Dysport 瘦面 溶脂 Dysport注射到咬肌內,抑制神經肌接頭處乙酰膽鹼遞質的傳遞,使咬肌張力變小而達到瘦臉效果。

  5. 以低能量的1064-Q激光反覆掃於皮膚表面,逐步改善皮膚色素問題。 治療時產生的熱能能促進膠原蛋白的再生,回復肌膚彈性。 使用7mm平行光光頭,使輸出的激光更溫和及均勻。功效: 去除紋身 美白及去除面毛 令整體膚色更白更均勻 減淡及去除荷爾蒙斑或反黑 增加皮膚膠原蛋白,改善皮膚彈性 減淡深層色斑 : 黃褐斑,荷爾蒙斑,蝴蝶斑 以低能量的1064-QS激光反覆掃於皮膚表面,逐步改善皮膚色素問題 使用8-10mm平行光光頭,使輸出的激光 更溫和及均勻 1. 激光能透進皮膚深層 2. 激光被黑色素吸收 3. 產生熱能將黑色素體分解 4. 被呑噬細胞吸收及排出體外

  6. 關于Ion Magnum技術: 它的作用是加快脂肪代謝而轉化成肌肉。專業設計的微電流模擬大腦到肌肉的正常神經傳導。乙醯膽鹼及ATP(産生能量的物質)都是由神經末梢釋放的。神經元共振導致神經末梢持續不斷的釋放ATP,甚至能達到正常釋放量的500。 Ion Magnum應用的是世界定級的神經生理學技術,它加快脂肪燃燒的速度,增强肌肉收縮,提高基礎代謝率(指的是你靜息狀態下消耗卡路里的速率)。複雜的微電流包含2000次與正常生理過程的相互作用,由此達到人體自然狀態下所不能達到的效果。它可以加快能量的轉化,增强體力和運動能力。 Ion Magnum目前由位於英國的創新科學研究中心開發、製造,該中心是由歐盟提供資金支持的。該設備及其組件均是由英國頂級的科學家手工製作的。該産品有CE標志,CE標志是歐洲共同市場的安全標志。 Ion Magnum基於最新的起搏器技術。

  7. 當蛋白線埋入皮膚後,皮下組織會將蛋白線視為異物,啟動異物反應,因此刺激膠原蛋白生長,且可促進新陳代謝,更新老化肌膚,所以客戶在術後也會發覺膚質變得較透亮白皙。膠原蛋白提拉線像一個“磁力線”一樣,將埋入處附近的肌肉和脂肪固定在原處,不會往下墜,其後會吸引皮下組織往蛋白線集中部位移動,就會逐漸產生提拉的緊實效果。也被用於填充美容的微整形,蛋白線材就好比蓋房子的鋼骨支架,先埋入皮膚當作基底結構,然後再注入好比水泥的玻尿酸或自體脂肪,因為有吸附力不易擴散,就可穩定固定住填充物,讓立體支撐力效果更好。

  8. ~100 預防高危致癌的 HPV 16、18 型號 (可減低 70 患子宮頸癌的風險) ~100 減低引致生殖器官濕疣 (俗稱「椰菜花」) 的 HPV 6、11 型的感染 (可減低超過 90 患生殖器官濕疣的風險) HPV4合1子宮頸癌疫苗 Gardasil HPV病毒會感染人類的皮膚及黏膜,一般會透過性接觸及親密的皮膚接觸而受到感染,是一種男性與女性都可能感染的常見病毒。可感染身體各個部位的HPV超過100種,當中有部份的HPV類型可影響生殖器部位,導致生殖器疣(genital warts) 、子宮頸細胞異常(abnormal cervical cells) ,甚至子宮頸癌 (cervical cancer)。 4合1 HPV 子宮頸癌疫苗,覆蓋4種高危HPV病毒:6、 11、16及18型(約70的子宮頸癌由HPV16和HPV18病毒引致),有助預防子宮頸癌、外陰癌、陰道癌及生殖器官濕疣

  9. 100有機潤唇膏 雙頭磨沙滋潤豐唇膏 滋潤豐唇蜜 亮彩保濕口紅 亮彩保濕唇蜜 持久亮麗雙頭唇彩 唇線筆 唇膏筆 抗炎作用原理:內環境平衡,增強陰道內免疫力 CO2可本質的改變組織特性,使粘膜組織新生 陰道上皮細胞功能增強,大量糖原在陰道桿菌作用下分解成乳酸,逐步恢復陰道正常的PH值 免疫力增強,降低私密處感染
