Oneohtrix Point Never Mixes it Up

Oneohtrix Point Never

Unless you don’t ever read about music, you’ve undoubtedly seen Oneohtrix Point Never (aka Daniel Lopatin) written about pretty much everywhere the last few weeks. He has a new record out on Editions Mego, an Invisible Jukebox in the new issue of The WIRE, hell even Pitchfork has jumped on board with their signature brand of uh, praise.

Yes, Returnal is great, and I highly recommend checking it out if you like your soundscapes synth-heavy, off-kilter and occasionally bleak. But, it’s not what I’m selling today people. Lopatin recently contributed a mix to the FACT mix series, and it’s literally all I’ve been listening to for two days. I’m a huge fan of artist mixes, because I think hearing where musicians are coming from as listeners gives me a better context of where they are coming from as artists, and this one is no exception. In fact, I’ve actually enjoyed both Returnal and Rifts more after spending time with it.

Generally, if a mix is 50% shit I’ve never even heard of before, AND it makes me drop everything to track down every last record featured on it, I’m comfortable calling it an unmitigated success.

Lopatin describes the mix to FACTmag as: “Slowed down 6%, bounced down to tape and loads of compression. Sounds like codeine. Just a bunch of jams I like at the moment.”

Come on, who doesn’t like codeine?

Tracklist:

1. The Half Dead Organization – Mission
2. Alan Parker – Pulse Sequence
3. Roedelius – Poetry, Pink Blue and Amber
4. Sensations Fix – Fragments of Light
5. Son of Sam – Shah Main
6. Space Opera – Holy River
7. Akvarium – Live
8. John Martyn – Go Easy
9. Alain Renaid – Out of Time
10. Martin Dupont – Bent at the Window
11. Nik Raicevic – Eternity
12. Cube – Stealing
13. Yi Yi Thant – Good Time
14. Airbird – King For the Night
15. Paul Nagle – Skyring (edit)
15. Sphinx – Bad Girl

Keep in mind, like all FACT mixes, this is only available for 3 weeks. Get over there and download it, and let Space Opera, Sphynx and Cube blow your mind.
