ANNA and Jon Hopkins have collaborated on a new version of the latter's 2021 track ‘Deep In The Glowing Heart’, the result of "a month-long trans-Atlantic collaborative process". Listen to 'Deep In The Glowing Heart (Night Version)' below.
The original version of 'Deep In The Glowing Heart' was featured on the UK producer's recent studio album 'Music For Psychedelic Therapy', which came out last November. Hopkins said the track evokes a feeling that “music can cleanse you, music can guide you through”.
On the new, collaborative "Night Version" of the track, Brazilian producer ANNA and Hopkins craft a hard-hitting torrent of dark and stormy techno. It follows ANNA's 2018 remix of Hopkins's track ‘Singularity’.
“I first came across ANNA’s music through her track 'Hidden Beauties,' which I found myself playing in DJ sets all the time and always goes down so well," recalls Hopkins. "I then asked her to remix 'Singularity' and the results were so amazing I was super keen to work with her again but in a more collaborative way, rather than just handing over stems. We went back and forth a lot and it flowed really well. I love how this one turned out, it’s such a meeting of our two styles.”
“It is a big honor to be able to create music together with Jon," said ANNA. "His music is part of my daily life, part of my meditations, my long walks and contemplative moments. My remix for his track ‘Singularity’ had a huge impact on my career and getting to know Jon better since then, and collaborate on this version of 'DITGH', it feels like our relationship has come full circle!”
2021's 'Psychedelic Therapy' was the follow-up to Jon Hopkins's GRAMMY-nominated LP 'Singularity' (2018) and 2013's 'Immunity'.
ANNA also recently remixed Orbital's classic 'Belfast'. Check that out here.
