In just over a decade Daniel Lopatin, best known as Oneohtrix Point Never, has created an impressive catalog of experimental and forward thinking electronic music. We discuss his early CD-R and cassette releases of Tangerine Dream-esque soundscapes, his inadvertent creation of the vaporwave genre with his Chuck Person project and his string of celebrated releases on labels like Editions Mego and Warp Records. Driven by strong concepts to shape his music making, Lopatin crafts a distinctive and otherworldly sound that is continuously built upon with each subsequent LP. From his parent’s air-conditioned house to Brooklyn DIY shows to collaborating with Iggy Pop for film music, this is Oneohtrix Point Never.

    lo-pah-tin, otherwise excellent podcast.

    Also G.o.D. is easily my favorite OPN album, by a long shot infact.

    The closest any other album comes IMO is Replica, where I hear alot of the stuff that he was doing on G.o.D., but toned back ALOT.

    • Yeah, we’ve gotten a bit of friendly blowback that Garden of Delete isn’t one of our favorites of OPN. It seems to be the entry point into his discography for people who name that one as their favorite. Is that true for you?

        Replica was my first OPN incounter. After that though, I did listen to G.o.D..
