We’ve been crazy about Daniel Lopatin and his Oneohtrix Point Never since before we were born. And it’s no wonder why. Following 2011’s brilliant, sample-exploring Replica (our favorite album of 2011), Lopatin proceeded to release both a list-topping improvisational instrumental album with electronic god Tim Hecker and a split with rising noise-maestro Rene Hell in 2012. And that’s not to mention the albums and albums of old material just now being revisited by those who were hooked by his more recent releases (me).
And now, thanks to The Wire, we can visit old material that’ll actually sound new: the magazine is currently streaming Lopatin’s entire The Fall Into Time LP, a collection of unreleased material from the Rifts sessions that can also be found in the expanded reissue box set released late last year. Buy the 5xLP/3xCD set over at Lopatin’s Software label.
Meanwhile, a new Oneohtrix Point Never record is in “the distant horizon,” says Lopatin. It’s currently being mixed at Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik. ❤
