Oneohtrix Point Never’s Garden of Delete Reviewed

The inscrutability ranges far and wide, however, to almost every aspect of the artist also known as Daniel Lopatin. He first came to attention less than a decade ago as a vintage-synthesiser fetishist with an ear for ambient sounds rooted in the 1970s and ’80s, when acts like Cluster, Vangelis, and Tangerine Dream roamed the Earth.

Gradually his music turned grittier and more discordant, almost immediately in fact. After the plaintive and mesmerising Rifts introduced him to much of the world in 2009, Returnal, an eagerly-awaited album the next year, opened with a blast of static and screaming that fought for supremacy beneath layers and layers – and still more layers – of noise.
