Dan Lopatin has made a name for himself as the obsessive synth man (both as avante Oneohtrix Point Never, as well as super catchy Ford & Lopatin/Games) He’s made his own record label. (Software) And now, prior to releasing his new record Replica next month, Lopatin has decided to go further and dip his toes into the zine game. Because what makes sense to someone obsessed with vintage synths and 80s pop hooks? Outdated printed media! (but seriously, we love zine culture and are excited whenever an amazingly creative person branches out into a new thing.)
The zine will be called Cool Drool. Volume 1: Our Drool and Why features contributions from Cory Arcangel, Jon Rafman, Prurient/Cold Cave’s Dominick Fernow, Laurel Halo, Robert Beatty, Megazord, and The Wire’s Derek Walmsley. The whole thing will be available through Lopatin’s Software imprint this fall for required cold weather reading.
