Daniel Lopatin (born 25 July 1982) is an American electronic musician, composer, and producer who records under the alias Oneohtrix Point Never. Lopatin first received recognition for his 2009 compilation Rifts. His disparate work in subsequent years has received critical acclaim. He is currently signed to British experimental label Warp. His latest album, Garden of Delete, was released in 2015.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Lopatin is the son of Russian immigrants from the former Soviet Union, both with musical backgrounds. Some of his first experiments with electronic music were inspired by his father’s collection of dubbed jazz fusion tapes and his Roland Juno-60 synthesizer, an instrument that has since been used extensively by Lopatin in the studio and on-stage. Lopatin grew up in Winthrop, Massachusetts and attended Hampshire College, where he studied with Christoph Cox and Daniel Warner, before moving to New York to attend graduate school at Pratt Institute, studying archival science. During that time, he became involved in Brooklyn's underground noise music scene.
In 2013, Lopatin signed with Warp Records. His label debut, R Plus Seven, was released September 30, 2013 to positive reception. Lopatin collaborated with various visual and non-musical artists on visual accompaniments, live performances, and internet projects for the album, including frequent collaborator Nate Boyce, Jon Rafman, Takeshi Murata, Jacob Ciocci, and John Michael Boling. In 2014, Lopatin supported Nine Inch Nails on their tour with Soundgarden as a replacement for Death Grips. Lopatin released his second Warp LP Garden of Delete in November 2015 following an enigmatic promotional campaign. Lopatin contributed co-production to British singer Anohni's 2016 album Hopelessness.
