There are a few touchstones in the work of Oneohtrix Point Never, but composer Daniel Lopatin’s real magic power is his ability to rewire, unground and transfigure music and images into a mise-en-scène of wild depths and tricky shallows. His Warp Records debut R Plus Seven is being held up as a major departure, but really it is just another brilliant piece in the puzzle … a piece that grows tangentially over his exquisite repertoire of imaginative and abstract musical outputs. It may glide and glisten with ease, but it contains that disruptive and hypnotic OPN DNA in equal measure.
