Seeing as how Daniel Lopatin completely immerses himself in the alternate realities (read: songs) he creates as Oneohtrix Point Never, it's hard to imagine him working on anything other than those otherworldly soundscapes—let alone anything as upbeat as his Games project. The Brooklyn-based duo, which also includes Joel Ford (of Tiger City), recently released its first 7", Everything is Working, and the lush "Heartlands" is the b-side to that record. The song starts as a shimmering, sample-heavy dance tune, but slowly turns into an exploration of filtered atmosphere and cascading synth melodies. It's certainly nothing like Lopatin's solo moniker, but if we try extra hard, we can picture music like this playing in the dance clubs of Oneohtrix's hand-made dimensions.
