Oneohtrix Point Never presents The Station, an instant highlight of his latest Warp album Age Of.
The Station was originally written as a demo for Usher, but then took on an entire life of its own, an immense mix of addictive pop-noir vocal hooks that carries us through a digital addictive vaporous prog cloud.
The EPs bonus levels 'Monody' mixes a digitised harpsichord with a truly sci-fi FX selection that sees the piece instantly expanding outward into a mix of glassy liquid swords going up against gabba kicks that sits nicely between the future-past classics of Gescom and Kuedo. 'Blow By Blow' meanwhile rises through a shower of exotic percussion before fading into a rainfall of field recordings that by the end of the track seemingly wash away within the ever-growing depths of downpouring digital rain.
Most excitingly though, We’ll Take It comes backed with the long-awaited worldwide availability of 'Trance 1' (a piece now officially released globally thanks to fan demand) which originally appeared as a Japan-only bonus track. Edited here into an arrangement that paid tribute to The Voyager Spacecrafts’ Golden Records that held sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and was sent out to be found by extraterrestrial life forms.
If you have been fully locked into the space station portal of Age Of since its release, then We'll Take It is your next landing point.
