Nothing But a Good Time: An Interview with Oneohtrix Point Never

As a genre-bending electronic artist, Oneohtrix Point Never has never had a challenge quite like a film score before, and for Good Time, he gives it his all, pulling out every trick in his sleeve (and an Iggy Pop collaboration) to land the emotions perfectly.

The Uncanny Effect of Being Almost Real: An Interview with Oneohtrix Point Never

In third album as Oneohtrix Point Never, electronic composer Daniel Lopatin works in a palette of sounds that are almost, but not quite recognizable, with structures that are nearly, but not really songs. "I'm interested in things that are on the edge of becoming real," he says. "I was thinking about that a lot."

Oneohtrix Point Never: Replica

On Replica, Oneohtrix Point Never creates a sonic mélange composed largely of '80s refuse, but it's so lacking in recognizable reference points that it precludes retro sample-spotting and wistful nostalgia alike; but it's a fascinating listen in its own right.

Oneohtrix Point Never: Returnal

The title of Daniel Lopatin's latest release seems to be a portmanteau of “return” and “eternal”, suggesting a perpetual recycling and endless recurrence.

Oneohtrix Point Never: Rifts

The dyschronia one experiences listening to Oneohtrix Point Never is similar, but not completely reverent, to the hypnagogic/glo-fi/chillwave axis in that it is music that is strangely familiar and familiarly strange.
