Oneohtrix Point Never - Rubio demo

Dan Lopatin's tribute to 90s-born NBA star Ricky Rubio.

For fans of Oneohtrix Point Never who can’t understand why he hasn’t made more songs that turn pop culture into heartbreaking essays of existence for a whole month, there’s a lovely thing on the internet this weekend.

Click below to hear the song Daniel Lopatin uploaded to Soundcloud, which references basketball and G funk, and is quite, quite lovely. The name, Rubio, is a reference to the first NBA star to be born in the 1990s Ricky Rubio, a reference we would have never understood had The NJ Underground not been kind enough to point it out.
