Oneohtrix Point Never "Sleep Dealer"
Oneohtrix Point Never is the ambient/electronic project for Danial Lopitan, better know these days as half of the 80’s synth duo Games. While his other project has seemingly gotten him more attention, he really has cut his teeth making amazing music under his OPN moniker, most recently with the spellbinding Returnal, which was and is a underrated gem of the last few years. He is back with his new LP Replica, which will be dropping this fall on his new Mexican Summer imprint Software. The first song we have heard from the LP is the chilly electronic track “Sleep Dealer,” which follows up and expands upon the lush, noisy pop dissonance of Returnal. Hopefully his success with his side project will help to spur more attention to his work, because the music he is creating is going places and doing things that other artists simply are not. Look for a full review of Replica in the very near future.
