Replica - SOFTWARE/MEXICAN SUMMER
FILTER Grade: 82%
By Jon Pruett on November 11, 2011
Channeling the Earth-bound pleasures in such disparate records as The Orb’s Pomme Fritz EP and Vangelis’ Sauvage et Beau, OPN speeds across rumbling vistas with audio transmissions chopped to bits and beamed back in (“Nassau,” “Up”). With Replica, synth-dreamer Daniel Lopatin heads into the Mexican Summer studio to create something more expansive than some of his recent CD-R efforts, and less of the distorto-R&B pop he created with Joel Ford on Channel Pressure.
