Stream Karenn's Remix of Jon Hopkins
- Words: Glenn Jackson
A standout from last years excellent Immunity LP (a record which we deemed the best release of 2013), Jon Hopkins' "Collider" is the focus of a new EP featuring an all-star cast of remixers, including UK duo Karenn—whose take on the track can be streamed now exclusively via XLR8R. Together, Blawan and Pariah bury "Collider" much deeper than Hopkins likely ever intended, squashing the original tune's pulsing pads beneath thick layers of tweaked hardware and an unrelenting kick drum.
Before the Collider Remixes EP sees a release February 25—with additional reworks from Hessle Audio co-head Pangaea and Berlin producer Objekt—Karenn's contribution to the effort can be streamed in full below.
