    KCRW Session

      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. 


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: Whilst Lopatin's work has gone from filmic ambient synth work (Rifts, Returnal) to more glitchy, beat based mayhem (Garden Of Delete), he's always maintained a focus on richly textured layers of synth pads and a slowly shifting instrumental weight. This 2018 session perfectly displays his unbeatable grasp of the fine balance between dynamics and weight, balancing the impassable mountain of sound with micromelodies and barely perceptible atmospheric movement.

      Good Time - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

      Oneohtrix Point Never returns with his new album Good Time Original Motion Picture Soundtrack out August 11 on Warp Records. Rapturously received by Cannes’ film critics, Good Time is directed by Josh and Benny Safdie and stars Robert Pattinson (in a widely regarded career best performance) and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The hypnotic crime thriller follows Pattinson’s Connie in a twisted odyssey through the New York underworld in a desperate attempt to get his brother out of jail ( watch trailer ).

      Oneohtrix Point Never received the prestigious Cannes Soundtrack Award at this year’s 70th anniversary edition of the festival for his visceral original score for Good Time . The artist was in competition with the likes of Jonny Greenwood, Jed Kurzel and Ibrahim Maalouf and took home the celebrated prize. Previous winners include Cliff Martinez for The Neon Demon (2016), Lim Giong for The Assassin (2015) and Howard Shore for Map to the Stars (2014).

      An original song by Oneohtrix Point Never composed for the closing theme of the film, “The Pure and the Damned” features a guest vocal and lyrics written by Iggy Pop. Iggy’s voice is rich with uncomparable weight and wisdom on this stunning closer.

      Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never and the Safdie brothers became close collaborators through a shared love of cult genre movies and music, and their level of collaboration here has a rare depth of symbiosis of picture and score. Mundane events become dramatic, montages become mini operas.

      With the soundtrack to Good Time, Oneohtrix Point Never has created a genuine listening experience rivalling the very best of his landmark studio albums. It also holds some of his most striking and complete individual moments; in addition to “The Pure and the Damned” “Leaving The Park” takes the classic arpeggio-laced crime scores of the 1970s and lends it the unique Oneohtrix Point Never stranger-beauty. Throughout the soundtrack, diegetic audio is interspersed and mutated in a natural foundation of Garden of Delete meets Rifts -era Oneohtrix Point Never sound palettes.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: Never one to shy away from an off-piste melodic moment or two, the great Daniel Lopatin returns to his Oneohtrix guise for a beguiling foray into ambient soundtrackery, liberally smeared with his unmistakable echoing synth business. This might be even better than that time he live-tweeted commentary on Billy Corgan's 24-hour synth jam. Superb stuff as ever from Lopatin.

      Warp Records are pleased to announce the release of Oneohtrix Point Never's 'R Plus Seven'. The album contains many familiar sonic touchstones for listeners who have followed the acclaimed electronic music composer’s development over the last half-decade, his Warp Records debut is a major departure from his previous work. Lopatin’s experimental inclinations lurk behind the scenes - in the concepts and procedures he adopted to create the tracks - while the music itself comes as close as he's has ever got to anything resembling traditional song structure. Which, for the producer, is only so close: The work is full of overlapping, abstract musical through-lines, puzzle-like pieces that, taken together, might allow you to glimpse an overarching tableau.

      The Brooklyn-based artist has always deftly balanced the experimental with the accessible: He has released several albums under his Oneohtrix Point Never moniker on various independent labels - including the 2013 3-CD/5 LP 'Rifts', a compilation of his early work - as well as amassing a large catalogue of mini-album tape releases. His most recent disc, 2011’s 'Replica', was built around samples of television commercials.

      OPN has built live soundscapes at the Museum of Modern Art; collaborated with Montreal-based ambient electronic music composer Tim Hecker on the largely improvised 2012 'Instrumental Tourist'; and recast the title track from his 2010 disc 'Returnal' as an elegant and emotive piece for piano, featuring the otherworldly voice of Antony Hegarty. Advertising powerhouse Saatchi & Saatchi tapped Lopatin for an installation event at the 2012 Cannes film fest and Sofia Coppola’s longtime cohort Brian Reitzell invited him to create original music for Coppola’s The Bling Ring.

      'R Plus Seven' is disruptive and hypnotic in equal measure, and the fun of it lies in trusting Lopatin as he guides you past - and often through - its succession of walls and mirrors.
