MOMENTS | Mash-up: Jon Hopkins x Late Night Tales Mix Series, Covers Yeasayer’s “I Remember”
We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
Electronic musician and producer Jon Hopkins is the latest contributor in the Late Night Tales mix series. Late Night Tales combines exclusive covers with spoken word narration, creating “music and stories worth staying up for”. Hopkins covered Yeasayer’s “I Remember” in his sampler and collaborated with poet Rick Holland for the spoken word track.
The mix takes samples from tracks by Four Tet, School of Seven Bells, Holy Other, HEALTH remixed by Gold Panda, Jónsi Alex, and more. On his creative process, Hopkins explains, “I mixed by key and by texture more than anything else, using original sound design, pivot notes, and often recording new synth or piano parts to link things together in a way that flows as naturally as possible. I hope you enjoy it.”
