Hopkins takes to the ivories for a take on melodic techno producer's 'Modern Driveway'

Mercury prize nominee and Eno-collaborator Jon Hopkins has covered Luke Abbott's track ‘Modern Driveway’. The track is taken from Abbott’s recently released EP of the same name, the follow up to the Norfolk native’s much-lauded 2010 album Holkham Drones. Hopkins takes to the ivories for this sprawling take on Abbott’s melodic techno. The track is subtle and transfixing, as Hopkins plays each note with deliberate tension. Listen via the embed below.

Jon Hopkins is set to appear at the BLOC Weekend in London on July 6th and 7th playing tracks from his forthcoming album.
