Oneohtrix Point Never

Pop music’s great recycler

As Oneohtrix Point Never, Daniel Lopatin has spent two decades recycling discarded fragments of popular culture. Yet he’s no mere nostalgist, as demonstrated by his magistral 2021 album Magic Oneohtrix Point Never and his work as executive producer on The Weeknd’s 2022 hit album Dawn FM. Each shows Lopatin’s deft ability to simultaneously subvert and explore the sounds of pop music, twisting the sounds of soft-rock in the age of FM radio into new, beguiling forms. After serving as musical director for The Weeknd’s 2021 Superbowl Halftime Show, he returns to Sónar with a new, hotly anticipated live show.
