Oneohtrix Point Never remixes The Weeknd's 'Dawn FM'

Oneohtrix Point Never has released a synth-heavy, experimental remix of The Weeknd’s ‘Dawn FM’ — the titular track from the Canadian artist's most recent album.

Released on Friday, July 8, the unique rework changes the pace, tone, and pitch of the original opening track - giving it 80s synth-pop feel.

Oneohtrix Point Never, real name Daniel Lopatin, was a prominent co-producer on ‘Dawn FM’ — credited as a composer, keyboardist, lyricist and programmer on the January-released record.

Lopatin has frequently collaborated with The Weeknd, and served as music director for the singer's, real name Abel Tesfaye, Super Bowl half-time show in 2021.

"Couldn’t resist extending the fantasy synth universe on my ‘Dawn FM’ remix," writes Oneohtrix Point Never on Instagram.

Last week The Weeknd was forced to postpone the opening show of his Dawn FM Tour, which was due to take place at Rogers Centre, Toronto - home of the Toronto Blue Jays, on July 8.

The tour will now officially start on July 14 at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field.

The show was postponed due to “service outages impacting venue operations”, with the Toronto Blue Jays tweeting that a “new show date will be shared ASAP and tickets will be honoured.”

Doja Cat has also pulled out of the upcoming tour — having been enlisted for a support slot for several legs of the North American stint of the show. In May Doja announced she was cancelling all of her live dates to recover from tonsil surgery.

The Weeknd is also set to announce dates around the world, including in Europe, Africa, Central America, Asia and Australasia.
