This second installation of the Syndicate Subsessions presents the first international guest of the series. Mercury Prize nominee, Jon Hopkins, will grace the stage at The Substation Theatre in conjunction with British Council’s ongoing city-by-city initiative, Musicity. Syndicate resident, Max Lane, is also set to unveil a collection of new materials on the same night.
Known for his productions and studio contributions to albums by Brian Eno, Coldplay and David Holmes, Jon Hopkins started his career by performing keyboard for Imogen Heap. After releasing his seminal third album, Insides, in 2009, Hopkins developed an intense live show to support the release, resulting in club and festival performances across Europe and the United States.
Meanwhile, Syndicate’s own Max Lane has been busy working in the studio for this Subsessions installment. Moving away from his signature beat-bouncing & semi-club-friendly sounds, Max Lane will explore the minimal side of things and has been writing narratives to be delivered & sung by MC Masterpiece. Presenting the visual journeys for both performances will be Syndicate’s resident visualist, Brandon Tay.
