Oneohtrix Point Never "Blue Drive"
Last week, the New York-based sound sculptor Daniel Lopatin (a.k.a. Oneohtrix Point Never) released a collection of his hard-to-find past works, including his first three full albums—Betrayed in the Octagon, Zones Without People, and Russian Mind—and a number of rare productions previously availible only on limited CD-R and cassette releases. Pulled from Lopatin's Rifts box set (artwork above), "Blue Drive" is one such rarity which again displays the artist's patient craftsmanship and adeptness at venturing into the most gorgeous depths of ambient music—likely a recurring theme across the entire retrospective collection, available now from the Software label as five pieces of wax or a three-CD set.
