[LIFE IN TECHNICOLOR] When it comes to recommending an electronic musician, stating that someone’s résumé includes credits with both Coldplay and Imogen Heap probably isn’t going to inspire an immediate trip to Resident Advisor. But for London producer Jon Hopkins, melody—and a background in, oh no, ambient music!—is just as important as groove. Hopkins’ wonderful new record, Immunity, is dance-floor fodder for poptimists, mixing squiggly, four-on-the-floor anthems with gorgeous swaths of piano and white noise. “Open Eye Signal” is the clear jam, but the whole album hangs together like a perfectly placed kick drum. Your move, James Blake. MICHAEL MANNHEIMER
