"Oneohtrix Point Never teams up with long time collaborator Joel Ford with Games for their first release on Hippos In Tanks. Established in 1994, Games is a 4LYFE partnership between best friends. We met in a 6th grade science class and drew tape covers of fake bands that we dreamed we were in together. In high school we started jamming double synthesizers in Dans basement. This is when we were burning a lot, headbanging to 70s jazz-fusion, dubbing 88.9 blazer mixtapes and jamming them in cars ALL NITE while parsing the landscape data brain !!NORTH WAYLAND STYLE.!! After years of focusing on our respective musical projects (Oneohtrix Point Never, Tigercity) we decided it was time to make THE MAGIC HAPPEN. In February of 2010, we moved to Bushwick and started eating a lot of STREET MEAT and growing vegetables in a legit garden... EVERYTHING HAD TO BE SLOWER AND CREAMIER. From this profound environ GAMES WAS BORN. The sound is a blend of sampler/synth ecologies from across the globe. When we were hot teens, the synthesizer was our vehicle for blasting through THIRD LIFE during a time when all we had was a Daytona tape deck. Ever since, weve been ON THE CHASE." -Hippos In Tanks

Artist: GAMES
Title: That We Can Play
Format: LP
Label: Hippos In Tanks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The first EP from production duo DANIEL LOPATIN (ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER) and JOE FORD (AIRBIRD, SEX REAHB) under their GAMES moniker. The sound is a blend of sampler/synth ecologies from across the globe; Peru meets the futuristic visions of Valis undercut with Premier style chops all pulsating within a well-defined dynamic space reminiscent of Daft Punk. From a production perspective the record is massive. Joel Ford naturally takes the fader reigns and delivers production quality on par with Sade. In the context of Games, Lopatin voyages to new stylistic islands observing the nature of moments passed with stunning awareness and vision. Naturally, his observations circle back to us in the indistinguishable palates of that infamous oscillated vernacular." - Hippos In Tanks.
