Listen: Daniel Avery 'Visible Gravity'

As a taster of what to expect on the North American tour with Jon Hopkins, Daniel Avery has created an original 50-minute ambient work called ‘Visible Gravity’, shared via XLR8R. Speaking about the new material, he explains, “One of the wonders of DJing for me is to build the atmosphere of the room from the ground up. To draw a line between the people laying on the floor to the opening drones and those climbing the walls during the acid rave hours later. It requires patience and submission from everyone involved but the rewards are great.”

“When asked by Jon to support him on his American tour,” Avery continues, “we talked of ways in which we could make the night work as a whole and, from drawing on my own club experiences, decided that I should play from doors opening until Jon’s first note. I was asked to put together a mix as a demonstration but an idea in my head repeatedly dragged my attention away. A single loop wouldn’t leave my mind and the resulting piece emerged after an intense studio session in London. The piece is an ode to those early and quiet moments in a night where the strobe light is still only a hopeful glimmer beyond the horizon, a sign of the euphoria to follow. I live for those feelings. Love and eternal respect to Kikuta-san.”
