To celebrate the first anniversary of Magic Oneohtrix Point Never, Daniel Lopatin, aka Oneohtrix Point Never, announces a special extended edition arriving on 29th October on Blu-ray. The new edition features four bonus songs: Elizabeth Fraser, formerly of Cocteau Twins, has joined the electronic producer for a reworking of “Tales From the Trash Stratum”. Although more known for collaborations in the pop world and cinematic scoring, Lopatin reaches into the dream world for this compellingly bizarre melding of genres.
The ethereal remix of Tales From The Trash Stratum whisks together a disjointed, staticky composition; the feeling of EVPs emanating through a spirit box. The original version featured glitching synths; in the version with Fraser, the experimental spirit of Cocteau Twins is echoed with plucked strings and keys, overlaid by Fraser’s stunning vocals. The track also has a spellbinding accompanying visual, created by Robert Beatty.
Magic Oneohtrix Point Never followed 2018’s Age Of. In between albums, Daniel Lopatin scored the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems.
