JON HOPKINS - MUSIC FOR PSYCHEDELIC THERAPY VINYL (LTD. ED. CLEAR 2LP GATEFOLD)
LIMITED EDITION CLEAR 2LP VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 25th March 2022
"Music For Psychedelic Therapy carves a new path for Jon sonically and philosophically. Enveloping Jon's journeys across geographical and cosmological spectrums, the album is an inimitable and all-embodying journey in and of itself. It's a richly rewarding and personal listening experience; one highly recommend indulging in without distraction. ‘Music For Psychedelic Therapy’ is Jon Hopkins’ first full-length since sister albums, the GRAMMYnominated ‘Singularity’ (2018) and ‘Immunity’ (2013). For this collection, Hopkins wanted to make something that faced the opposite direction, something egoless and introspective, made with total, raw honesty. “It felt like time for a reset, to wait for music to appear from a different place,” says Hopkins. That place ended up being Tayos Caves in Ecuador, where Hopkins went on a life-changing creative expedition in 2018. Album closer ‘Sit Around The Fire’ is a unique collaboration between Hopkins, producer and ceremony guide East Forest and legendary guru, the late Ram Dass. ‘Music For Psychedelic Therapy’ was self-produced and recorded. Field recordings on ‘Tayos Caves, Ecuador’ are by Mendel Kaelen, and multi-dimensional synthesis and woodland surround are by 7RAYS."
