Oneohtrix Point Never pays tribute to Earth Wind & Fire at the HMMAs

“‘Let’s Groove’ is one of the hardest jams ever”

This past weekend at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards 2017 (HMMA), prestigious NYC artist Oneohtrix Point Never (OPN) was awarded Best Original Score in a Feature Film for his electrifying work on the movie Good Time.

OPN was gifted the same award this year at Cannes Film Festival and the film is scheduled to hit theaters in the UK this week.

When arriving on stage to accept his award, OPN took a moment to give a special shoutout to the famous genre-spanning trio Earth Wind & Fire - all of whom were in attendance.

“…Before I go into a diatribe, I think it is amazing that Earth Wind & Fire is here. 'Let’s Groove' is one of the hardest jams ever, and everything about your band is cool. The album artwork was epic and I remember how much that influenced me when I was just a kid listening to records, and your synth sounds too because they were probably some of the first records I ever heard with this incredible, fantastical, otherworldly sound and in many ways you guys connected this moment for me right here so thank you for that…"

Watch the trailer for the movie Good Time below.
