Describing the work of Brooklyn-based experimental musician Daniel Lopati is no mean task! While the producer initially made his name with a series of trippily drifting synthscapes, recent years have found him consistently expanding his artistic vision, to the point where describing his 'sound' is all but impossible. However, this mix gets as close as possible to doing just that. Running for nearly two hours, it spans multiple decades, genres, and continents. As it unfurls, Lopatin flashes a unique ability to connect the dots between seemingly disparate points of the musical universe, and often does so with a genuine sense of humor, which makes the listening experience all the more enjoyable. We've not included the tracklist this time as A. It's a much more enjoyable experience being surprised by the music and B. It's too fucking long! Anyhoo. Enjoy and big love. X.
