“It’s pop, right? This is my Moby record!”
Daniel Lopatin has produced music for Anohni, FKA Twigs and David Byrne, he has created remixes for Nine Inch Nails and Ryuchi Sakamoto, and he won the Cannes Soundtrack Award for GOOD TIME which featured a collaboration with Iggy Pop. On his latest album as Oneohtrix Point Never AGE OF he collaborates with James Blake (album production & keyboards), Anohni (vocals), Prurient (vocals), Kelsey Lu (keyboards) and Eli Keszler (drums). AGE OF is frequently considered OPN’s most accessible release to date. But even if it’s the most collaborative album he made, even if it features the human voice more than his previous work, even if he considers it a pop-album … you might have a hunch that Daniel Lopatin’s music is still as challenging as it ever was. AGE OF is without a doubt a hugely ambitious album and to top it all off its release is accompanied by a series of live shows called MYRIAD, a four-part epochal song cycle that combines theatre, installation art and musical performance.
