The Just Music crew are heading back to the Big Chill Bar for Absolute Zero 005 with a summer soundtrack of cool electronica and all round beautiful sounds provided by Jon Hopkins , Loner and Laroca .
At a mere 25 years of age Jon Hopkins already has two critically acclaimed self-produced albums under his belt, he’s a favourite of TV music supervisors on both sides of the Atlantic and his name is often uttered in the same breath as Brian Eno, William Orbit, Massive Attack and Moby. He’s returning to Absolute Zero with his seductive cutting-edge filmcore electronica.
Loner’s Geoff Smith continues a lyrical storytelling tradition treading on the path of those who have inspired him over the years – Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and Billy Corgan – with reflective and passionate melodies, restrained vocals and stunning piano arrangements. A hypnotic mix of instrumental and vocal songs which take inspiration from a myriad of unknown faces and unwritten stories.
Cinematic groove merchants and festival favourites Laroca will be back behind the decks playing a heady mix of lush electronica, world flavours, hip hop beats and jazzy vibes in keeping with their forthcoming debut album Friends In Far Away Places.
