Oneohtrix Point Never – ‘Rubio’ (demo)

Our rating:

Zonked-out tropical synth

Most kosmische keyboard explorers write music dealing with subjects like deserted space-stations. Not Daniel Lopatin, whose new demo – his first since 2011’s ‘Replica’ – deals conceptually with Ricky Rubio, a basketball player for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Ricky must be hot shit, because ‘Rubio’’s zonked-out tropical synth oozes a sensation of splendid serenity.
