Oneohtrix Point Never Remix EP Due

 

Followup to/re-envisioning of 2011 album.

 

On 2011’s Replica, Daniel
Lopatin — aka Oneohtrix Point Never — turned a world of samples into one of
the year’s most acclaimed albums (it made BLURT’s Top 10 for that year;
read the review here). Now comes Dog In
The Fog – Replica Collaborations & Remixes
, a digital EP featuring
new edits and remixes of “Replica”, “Remember” and
“Nassau” by a handful of OPN’s friends and favorites. It’s available
digitally 6/12 from the Software Recording Co.

Lopatin approached Limpe Fuchs to contribute vocal and viola
parts to the album’s namesake centerpiece, having been influenced by her
1987 electroacoustic record Via. The parts were then handed
to Matmos to arrange, known most for 2001’s brilliant A Chance to Cut is a Chance to Cure, as
well as their production work on Björk’s Vespertine and Medulla records.
Another version of the title track features King Midas Sound’s Roger Robinson,
whose affecting vocal is set alongside a new arrangement by Lopatin
himself.

 

The EP also features versions of “Remember”, which becomes a
churning percussive ember under techno legend Surgeon’s direction. Richard
Youngs, another influential artist on Lopatin’s own work, concludes the EP with
a blasted, dirge-like vocal edit of “Nassau”.
