ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER - KCRW SESSION

- NEW RELEASE

TITLE:
KCRW Session
LABEL:
CATNO:
WARPLP300-8
FORMAT:
Vinyl record
DESCRIPTION:
4 Track EP of Downbeat Electronica & Experimental Grooves - Includes Printed Inner Sleeves & Download Code For The Release

Brooklyn's Daniel Lopatin has had one hell of career, practically dominating the new synth experimental movement since his casette debut in 2007. For Warp's eighth release in the 'TX' series we skip continents to LA, with Oneohtrix Point Never's 2018 session for KCRW radio is documented here.

As per the format now, four highlights are lifted from the session and presented here for our enjoyment. "Love In The Time Of Lexapro" is a long standing favourite live performance by our man, and this particular instance is a dream on the ears - musical, tectonic and cataclysmic all at once.

"RayCats", taken from the "Age Of" LP is an experimental number comprised of rhythmic nuances such as singing bowls, wind chimes and 'perc frog' scrapes before being decorated with some skilled synthesizer work - bright leads, lysergic swirls and emotive washes all centering in on this wonderful slice of futuro-exotica.

"Toys 2" shows off all dazzling flamboyance of 5D charisma of the artist's impressive synth array. Not a million miles away from James Ferraro's new new age masterpiece: "Farside Virtual", it highlights this transitional and momentous period, proto-vapourwave when Lopatin and friends were regarded as heroes of the Nu World, their bright optimistic synthscapes an escape from the hatred and separation that began to sweep through society.

Last FM Information on Oneohtrix Point Never

Please note the information is done on a artist keyword match and data is provided by LastFM.
Daniel Lopatin (born 25 July 1982), best known by the recording alias Oneohtrix Point Never, is an American experimental musician, composer, and producer based in Brooklyn. He began releasing electronic recordings under the OPN moniker in 2007, and received early acclaim in 2009 for the compilation Rifts. In subsequent years, he released albums such as Replica (2011) and R Plus Seven (2013) to critical praise and signed to British label Warp, while also taking part in a number of side-projects, collaborations, and film scores. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Lopatin is the son of Russian Jewish emigrants from the former Soviet Union, both with musical backgrounds. Some of his first experiments with electronic music were inspired by his father’s collection of dubbed jazz fusion tapes and his Roland Juno-60 synthesizer, an instrument that has since been used extensively by Lopatin in the studio and on-stage. Lopatin attended Hampshire College in Massachusetts before moving to Brooklyn, New York to attend grad school at Pratt Institute, studying archival science. During that time, he became involved in Brooklyn's underground noise music scene. In January 2017, a collaboration between Oneohtrix Point Never and FKA twigs was confirmed. In 2017, Oneohtrix Point Never provided the soundtrack for the film Good Time, directed by Ben & Josh Safdie. He won the Soundtrack Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for his work on the film, which included a collaboration with singer Iggy Pop entitled "The Pure and the Damned." The film's soundtrack was released via Warp on August 11, 2017. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
