The Arches and Cry Parrot team up to bring experimental musician Oneohtrix Point Never to the Berkeley Suite following the release of Replica last year – the sixth album in a prolific back catalogue of liquid ambience and drone-heavy electronic psychedelia.

Brooklyn-based musician Daniel Lopatin’s labour of love, Oneohtrix Point Never is the cross-section at which a number of his obsessions meet: vintage hardware, sci-fi, dystopia, experimental music, retro-futurist electronica, noise… 2010′s Returnal, for example, was performed and recorded by Lopatin on a personal computer and an array of vintage hardware, consisting of an Akai AX-60, a Roland Juno-60, a Roland MSQ-700 and a Korg Electribe ES-1, whilst Replica merges electronica, ambient and drone to produce a song cycle based on lo-fi audio procured from TV advertisement compilations.

Coming in sixth in Pitchfork’s Top 50 albums of 2011, it marked the latest of Lopatin’s albums to be greeted with critical reverence, strengthened by their billing on the Animal Collective-curated ATP that summer.

Support comes from Glasgow producer Sad City and Konx-om-Pax (Display Copy / Planet-Mu).
