Oneohtrix Point Never Preps Record Store Day 12″
Daniel Lopatin's three-track 'Commissions II' EP will land in April.
NYC-based artist and former XLR8R podcast contributor Oneohtrix Point Never will release the Commissions II 12″ on Record Store Day next month. A companion to his first Commissions EP (released last year), the forthcoming 12″ will consist of three efforts composed by the artist born Daniel Lopatin for various projects. The record’s a-side selections “Bullet Hell Abstraction I” and “Bullet Hell Abstraction III” are said to be “inspired by the video game soundtracks of celebrated Japanese artist Manabu Namiki,” and come from Lopatin’s performance of the full Bullet Hell Abstraction composition commissioned for RBMA’s recent Tokyo session; the b-side affair, “Suite from Magnetic Rose,” stems from the artist’s re-imagined soundtrack (performed live) to Koji Morimoto’s historic anime film, Magnetic Rose.
The Commissions II 12″ will see its official release on Record Store Day, April 18. In the meantime, the artwork and tracklist for Oneohtrix Point Never’s upcoming record have been included below.
