Oneohtrix Point Never’s FACT mix offers a fine insight into what makes this acclaimed artist tick, and showcases the skewed pop sensibility that permeates even his most abstract offerings. Beginning with the thugged-out, slugged-out hip-hop of The Half Dead Organization, we’re subsequently treated to the pastoral kosmische of Roedelius (‘Poetry, Pink Blue and Amber’), the echo-drenched folk of John Martyn (‘Go Easy’) and the throbbing minimal wave of Martin Dupont (‘Bent At The Window’). Those in amidst a load of cuts we didn’t even know existed until we heard the mix, but which can now be found at the top of our wantlists on eBay and Discogs.
Lopatin’s description of the mix is simple: “Slowed down 6%, bounced down to tape and loads of compression. Sounds like codeine. Just a bunch of jams I like at the moment.”
