Tim Hecker & Daniel Lopatin- “Uptown Psychedelia”

Tim Hecker and Daniel Lopatin (a.k.a. Oneohtrix Point Never) have come together in what may be the most
promising electronic collaboration of the latter year. Their forthcoming LP titled Instrumental Tourist is to be expected on November 20th as a part of Software record’s SSTUDIO series. An intriguing venture aimed at expanding the catalogue of a new label, Software invites the collaboration of electronic artists in search of works of quality and unique vision.

The recent release “Uptown Psychedelia” does just that in its avant-garde approach to a modern
formula and sound palette that seamlessly blends organic ‘Instruments of the World’ with synthetic
conceptions of otherworldly resonances. The use of drones and trance inducing stereo panning creates
a very sublime and captivating aesthetic. Recorded through improvisation and with little preparation in advance, Hecker and Lopatin’s work can be fantasized as free-jazz predecessors of the electronic age.
