These gorgeous, glitchy, sexy, somber jams were the year's most addictive bedroom beats – EDM for those evenings when you'd rather curl up at home with a vapor pipe and your boo. Hopkins' drifting sense of melody recalls both Eno and the piano minimalism of Erik Satie. But he also likes forward motion and the sly schaffel beats of German techno. By the time the 4/4 kick drums materialize, you'll be dancing on the couch.
