Oneohtrix Point Never Recommends

The Brooklyn-based noise wizard speaks to us about his favourite sounds of the moment and his secret haunts

New York-based Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never, best known for his ethereal synth experimentations out on labels like Software and Mexican Summer - is set to release his new track, taken from the eponymous album, 'Replica', playing with atmospheric samples, endless piano and synth sounds and drone. Having released a double-disc beast of an anthology, 'Rifts', and follow-up LP 'Returnal' last year, Lopatin has further developed his close relationship with the Roland Juno-60, utilised as a noticeable link across the majority of his tracks. Based around lo-fi audio snippets, 'Replica' is a somewhat dark and experimental excursion fusing analog sounds, acoustic piano and rumbling sub-frequencies. Here the sonic wizard speaks to us about places to go and things to read...
