I knew that Jon Hopkins’s Asleep Versions was a remix EP of sorts. That was my approach when I listened for the first time anyway. By the end of the 25-minute piece—a medley of four reworked songs from the Immunity album—I felt like these versions could have been the originals.
The epic versions of “Open Eye Signal” and “Breathe This Air” are essentially scores for dreams, which is likely the point. This EP is simply beautiful.
