Daniel Avery has released a new 50 minute ambient track, called ‘Visible Gravity’, as a taster of what to expect from his upcoming sets supporting Jon Hopkins on his North American tour. Meanwhile, Hopkins has remixed ‘Glitter’ from Avery’s latest album, ‘Song For Alpha’.

Of the somewhat lengthy ‘Visible Gravity’, and how he plans to use it on the tour, Avery explains: “When asked by Jon to support him on his American tour 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 [of how that might work], but an idea in my head repeatedly dragged my attention away”, he continues. “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”.
