New Music: Oneohtrix Point Never’s “Sleep Dealer”

Yes! The first track from Oneohtrix Point Never’s upcoming Mexican Summer release, Replica, is now available for our listening pleasure. Simultaneously playful and sensual, the track is called “Sleep Dealer” and showcases Daniel Lopatin’s knack for combining electronic and human sounds in distinct and curious fashion.

I love it! If “Sleep Dealer” is any indication of what Replica has to offer—and I think it is—we are in for a treat.

Oneohtrix Point Never - Sleep Dealer by Mexican Summer

Remember what the press release said:

Replica is an electronic song cycle based around lo-fi audio procured from television advertisement compilations. These sample-based meditations are as lyrical as they are ecological, featuring repurposed “ghost vocals” which serve as narration for Lopatin’s signature amorphous, ambient passages.

Sounds about right. Replica will be released on November 8.
